BVI Yacht Sales Overview

2003 Dufour Gib’Sea 51 ‘Chipeta’

BUILDER’S REMARKS: Totally designed to answer the demands of those who are always seeking for more space and comfort, the Gib`Sea 51 was the first fifty foot yacht capable of offering 5 double cabins and 5 independent heads offering Ample space for the whole family and friends. Combined with an extraordinarily roomy cockpit, easy boarding access, a light and airy interior with numerous portlights, and the very latest in hull design, this Gib’Sea 51 is the perfect family cruiser. You will appreciate the space and comfort, whilst discovering the pleasures of sailing on a very safe and comfortable yacht.

 BROKER’S REMARKS: This 2003 Dufour Gib’Sea 51 is an ideal family yacht. ‘Chipeta’ was sailed seasonally here in the BVI by an avid sailor and his family since 2011. She is equipped with a Northern Lights generator, 86hp Perkins M92 marine diesel engine, new headsail, dinghy w. outboard and a slue of equipment that will be essential for an on the water lifestyle. The recent passing of the owner has prompted a sale and owners will be considering all reasonable offers taking into consideration her level of outfitting and capability of comfortably accommodating 10+ people!

This vessel is in need of an owner willing to invest a bit of ‘sweat equity’ into sorting the vessel out and taking on some projects but overall is a great boat for the money considering everything that is included in the deal. It would be difficult to find another 5 cabin, 5 head monohull anywhere for this price! It would make for an excellent home on the water, charter machine or a way to take the whole family on the sailing adventure of a lifetime! She is located in Nanny Cay Marina, Tortola, BVI. Fresh coat of bottom paint recently applied, engine & Gen recently started. She can be splashed right away to avoid yard fees and sailed away to complete the commissioning of the vessel asap.
