GibSea 402 - Ocean Spirit - SOLD


Ocean Spirit is a 1989 GibSea 402 now exclusively for sale with the YOTI team on Pittwater.

With attractive lines, the GibSea 402 is a very solidly built yacht from arguably the home of production sailing yachts - the West Coast of France. GibSea's are known for their solid construction and sea going capabilities. The company went onto become part of the hugely successful Dufour brand.

This is a three double cabin layout with two heads. The real timber below deck is beautiful and reminds us of how boats should be built. The impressive galley sits to port opposite a generous forward facing nav station (with chart plotter). The saloon area is big, inviting and comfortable and converts into an additional double berth or day bed. Ocean Spirit was repowered in around 2007 with a Yanmar 40Hp shaft drive diesel. There is a course master Auto-Pilot. The cockpit is safe, secure and is protected by the bimini and dodger plus a large awning is supplied for times at anchor. Sails have been updated and present well. There is a Muir electric windlass with main anchor and two spares. Cockpit storage is massive in both side lockers and the lazarettes.

Ocean Spirit will appeal to those seeking for some old school solid style. The yacht would suit a live aboard, weekend escape machine or with some updates would make a capable blue water cruiser.
