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).
