The Dufour Gib Sea 433 Papae is a roomy cruising monohull, with a light and well laid out living space. The cockpit is the twin wheel set-up, so it's easy to check on sail trimming and equally easy to move around – always important when cruising in the tropics!
Heading inside, there is ample headroom and lots of light coming from the many hatches and portholes – all recently changed. The boat is relatively beamy, giving space for the saloon with table seating (with drop down for an additional double bunk), nice galley in U format on starboard. Forward is the owner's suite, with a double bed, private bathroom and area that can be switched between sitting room or cabin with double bunks. This really is like an annex, where one can retreat from the rest of the boat – ideal for parents wanting a bit of privacy. Aft is the classic set-up with 2 double cabins and bathroom.
