Gib'sea 414

Rob Humphreys was brought in to design

this elegant cruiser racer from the latter end

of the 19905 with similar lines to her larger

sister, the Gib’sea 48, one of which was

the successful Sealance. She was

offered with cruising or racing rig and

keel, the former having an iron keel of

6ft (1.8m) draught, the latter a lead

keel drawing 7ft Sin (2.5m) and

having a tapered, three spreader rig

with rod rigging. Both versions are

equally well fitted out below with

a linear galley facing a large

dinette. There are two doubles

aft and one forward. Two

heads are standard though

the after one can be

changed for lockers. She is

neatly fitted out and more

stylish than some of her sisters.
