Gibsea 84

Designed by Michel Joubert and Bernard Nivelt, and built through most of the 1980s, the Gib'Sea 84 was a typical stylish and fairly fast small cruiser in the French style. The model was replaced by the Gib'Sea 282 in around 1988.

Gibert Marine was founded in 1972, and through the 1970s and 1980s built a wide range of small cruisers in direct competition with Beneteau, Jeanneau and Dufour. Gib'Seas are well built and generally offer spacious hulls with relatively simple fit-outs. The company was taken over by Dufour in the mid 1990s, which for a while produced a newer, larger range under the Gib'Sea name. From around 2009, however, Dufour appeared to drop the Gib'Sea range.
