Gib ‘Sea 33 is luminous and as spacious as many 36 footers due to its wide beam and many opening portholes and hatches.  The well thought out design has given this vessel 2 very spacious staterooms, in addition to the spacious salon with lots of room for entertaining.  Its elegant lines enable sailing performance levels worthy of a real sailing yacht.  The composite teak and holly sole throughout the boat give a traditional, yet easy to maintain finish.

The forward stateroom features a spacious vee berth, built-in shelves on both sides for all of your "little things" like glasses and books, overhead reading lights on each side of the cabin, Built in seats (one on each side) for dressing and putting on your shoes in privacy, 2 large hanging lockers with shelves for storage, overhead hatch for lots of light and ventilation.

Port and starboard settees with a centerline drop-leaf table.  This convenient layout gives you all the room you want for entertaining, and folds everything out of the way when "just hanging out".  The table has built in storage including a wine rack, there are large shelves behind each settee, and more storage under the settees.  The backs on each settee flip up to help them convert easily into single berths for guests.

Next aft to port is the galley. Galley is light and bright with great access.  There is a 2 burner gimbaled propane stove with oven, large deep stainless steel sink, corian countertops,  large icebox with Frigomatic refrigeration, and plenty of storage.

Across to starboard from the galley is the nav station.
