Gib'sea 364

Appearing in this country just after the Dufour

takeover, this boat represents the last design

group before Dufour relaunched and integrated

the brand into the Dufour range. With a deep,

high aspect keel and rudder plus a fine

underbody, she should have been a quick sailer

but was actually no better than average. The

interior also suffered from being too basic with

some very light joinery. However,as always, she

was spacious and had good features, such as

the wet locker atthe foot of the companionway.

The chart table is disappointing

and the galley is more useful at

anchor than at sea. Headroom

too, was disappointing at just

over 6ft (1.8m).
