Gib'sea 32

From 1984, this Joubert-Nivelt model was unusual

for her day in having two double after cabins in a 32

footer. She is actually slightly smaller, overall, than

the earlier 31, with almost identical beam, but she

carries her beam well aft to create the

necessary space. With a large galley

and chart table also aft, the saloon is

forward of the point of maximum

beam and quite cosy. The heads is

extremely tight and the forecabin

is also cramped. Contemporary

reports described her as being

more substantially built than

some earlier models and a

competent sailer.
