Designed by world-renowned Joubert-Nivelt Design of France, the Gib Sea 402 is a proven racer-cruiser that combines performance with comfort. She has won praise for her high-quality construction, sturdiness, and reliability. She can move along easily in light winds but is sturdy enough to handle challenging weather conditions. Inside, she is a cozy home for long-distance cruising.

This Gib Sea 402 model was built in 1988, and over the past few years the current owner has lovingly made extensive upgrades and additions to get her ready for offshore adventures. Included in those improvements are a Hydrovane windvane, various modifications to facilitate single-handed sailing, and new sails, radar, chartplotter, transmission, propellor, and much more. In her current configuration, she comfortably sleeps five people, with up to seven people including the two salon berths.
