Gib'sea 37

Together with the very similar Gib’sea 38, this

somewhat unusual-looking Joubert-Nivelt

design comes from the very beginnings of

Gibert Marine. She was offered as a ketch or

sloop and with six berths in three cabins.

(The 38 managed nine berths in four

cabins.) Headroom wasa miserly 6ft and

the general level of equipment was low.

However, the galley was effective and

she had a reasonable navigation area.
