The Gib'Sea 33 is a comfortable, high-volume, modern cruising yacht, built by Dufour yachts to compete with the Hunter Legend 33, Beneteau Oceanis 331 and smaller Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 32. Although rarely seen due to Dufour concentrating marketing on their main range, the Gib'Sea design is aging very well, with features like her moulded anchor sprit and clean lines making her appear far newer than most of the competition! Below decks she combines arguably the perfect layout at this size with excellent headroom, good stowage, and an attractive finish. Dreamcatcher has diesel fired heating, hot water, fridge, holding tank, bimini, cockpit cushions, transom shower, a Raymarine nav package with autopilot and radar, and is presented in very good condition for her age!

FORECABIN: Fitted with a generous double V berth, two seats and hanging lockers, further stowage and an opening hatch to the foredeck.
SALOON: The saloon is unusually light and spacious for this size, and is laid out in the traditional style of two settee berths, at 6'6" long they are larger than usually found, with flip-up backs to increase space and provide useful storage for bedding, either side of a central dining table with folding leaves and storage. Six large portlights and a central hatch provide excellent natural light and ventilation.
