Gib'sea 352

Launched in 1988, this was the replacement forthe

105/106 series and had a lot to live up to. Another

Joubert-Nivelt design, she was a spacious,

reasonably well-equipped boat aimed mainly at

the charter market with a Master, or owner’s

version also available. The charter version had

two after cabins, a large, outward facing chart

table, spacious saloon and compact heads

forward with the forecabin. The owner’s

version had one after cabin and a rather

larger heads aft The forecabin also had

more space. In this form she was not a

bad family cruiser but sales were

disappointing and

she had difficulty competing

with the Oceanis and Sun

Odyssey ranges.
