This Dufour Gib'Sea 51 is the best monohull for large families wanting to go exploring the world needing something strong, reliable, super roomy and yet affordable.

A unique layout with 5 cabins which do not compromise on the giant salon, a practical galley, a huge walk-though cockpit and generous storage capacity for everything you need to live-aboard year around. This is basically the one boat out there that can make it possible for families who can't find anything to sail around the world without being on top of each other, or alternatively for a group of friends to go set sail together in search of the most perfect surf breaks and who need privacy from one another as well as a ton of room for their gear.

Torea VI is the happy home of the most extraordinary family we have met! @sailingwithsix (Look them up on Instagram and check their YouTube videos!) We are all madly in awe of them and of course of their boat, which has just now hit the market as they decided that it was time for them to look for a catamaran. It was a tough decision as they adore their boat and know they can trust her no matter what, but with a dad working remotely, all four kids home-schooled and two of them fast becoming teenagers, it is time to look for something larger.

This beautiful boat is brought to you in turnkey condition, with two subsequent owners, (her previous French family who sailed her to Australia with a bunch of kids too, and her current family), who both continually improved on her design to suit her to serious offshore cruising and independence when living on board.


For more information please get in touch with us. In spite of the restrictions imposed by Covid-19 we have been able to help families begin their cruising dreams thanks to video calls and completely open communication Let us know if you have any questions, would like to chat with the owners, or find out how to survey, purchase, register, import, deliver your new boat home, or how to come to meet us here in Fiji and start your live-aboard life in paradise. There are no silly questions and we would simply love to welcome you to our cruising community!
