Gibsea 43 - USD 82,000


A very striking production yacht..- twin wheels at the helm, plumb bow with 'dolphin nose' pulpit protecting the anchor, low-profile coachroof, wide side decks with lots of stainless steel hand rails and of course the large cockpit and sugar scoop stern with such easy access to the water. The Gibsea 43 is a good choice for cruising this region.
