Bluewater Yacht ready-to-go – robust hull meets modern technology – 2 extensive refits since 2020 

A robust performance sailing yacht equipped with everything you need to sail fast and comfortably worldwide, she is a fully equipped Gilbert Marine Gib’sea Master 48 from 1992. She has already proven herself in the Caribbean and crossing the Atlantic. She´s a Rob Humphreys designer responsible for the design of all new Oysters (among other projects), and she was ahead of her time with a dedicated bathing platform, hanging lockers, side entrances, etc. 

After spending 27 years in the owner's care (8 months per year on the hard) in Greece, the current owner bought her in 2019 for their 2-year family adventure to the Caribbean and back. She underwent an extensive refit in preparation for 2019/20, was maintained while on tour, and underwent a refit in 2022/23 when they returned. She´s in excellent condition for her next adventure with new owners. 

The Gib'Sea Master 48 is a well-regarded cruising yacht known for its solid build and seaworthiness. Its spacious interior makes it comfortable for extended voyages, while its design ensures good sailing performance. This yacht suits experienced sailors and those looking for a reliable vessel for long-term cruising.


She can sleep a maximum of 7 persons—2x2 in cabins and 2+1 in the forward cabin (with ensuite)—and provides comfortable seating for 6-7 persons in the salon and 4-5 persons in the cockpit. One head is ensuite to the forward (master) cabin, and one head functions as a day head. The third head was converted to a utility room with an easily accessible water maker and arrangements for a full-size top-loading washing machine. 

Headroom 190 cm


Mechanical and Rigging

Her engine is a Yanmar diesel 75hp from 2010 with 1.050h and is in excellent condition. The exhaustive 1.000h maintenance (incl. new impeller housing, gear oil change, etc.) was done in April 2023. 

She's very safe to sail with all lines leading back to the cockpit. Her robust build and smooth bow with deep bilge allow her to weather any waves and wind conditions. And with her draft of 1.7m, she can go where usually only much smaller boats or catamarans can go – especially in the Bahamas.

She has enough solar and wind energy generation capabilities to be independent of any shore or fossil power source. The dinghy is large and powerful enough for six persons or extensive provisioning runs.
