Our boat is a Dufour GibSea 43. Manufactured in France. She is a masthead sloop with a draft of 5’6″ and a beam of 14′.
With four cabins and 2 heads, our family is comfortable. Last summer, the children began “personalizing” their bedrooms to give them their own “space”.
Preparation of the Boat
Captain Chris has spent hours working at fixing and adding comforts to our boat for a long distance passage. Some of the updates include adding a 3rd battery, changing the throttle control shifter, replacing a toilet, repairing the fridge, adding solar panels, installing a LAN and internet connectivity, making new bimini & dodger, fixing the cutlass bearing, repainting the hull, replacing the windlass, adding shelves, etc…
