'Pegasus', our Gib'Sea 126 Sailboat is for Sale
by her Liveaboard Owners, Fred & Caroline

Our Gib'Sea 126 'Pegasus' is looking for a new owner. We've had a lot of fun with her over the last 12 years, but now it's time to hand her over to other sailors. More than 7 years ago we left the Netherlands to sail the world's oceans (and we still do). The 'Pegasus' is currently in Curaçao, the ideal place to start a sailing adventure.

The 'Pegasus' is a very decent lady, although she is from 1985. She has sailed all oceans and you can therefore speak of a wide experience. A true liveaboard boat equipped with all kinds of extra gear. What she needs is a new owner who will give her some TLC (Tender Loving Care).

General Notes about the Gib'Sea 126...

The Gib'Sea 126: A Spacious and Comfortable Cruiser
If you are looking for a sailboat that offers plenty of space, comfort and performance, you might want to consider the Gibsea 126.

This 13-meter monohull was designed by Joubert-Nivelt and built by Gib'sea/Gibert Marine between 1981 and 1986.

It is a versatile and well-equipped boat that can handle different sailing conditions and accommodate different needs.

The Gib'Sea 126 is a sloop-rigged boat with a fin keel and a semi-balanced skeg-hung rudder.

It has a reported sail area of 66 square meters, which gives it a good sail area/displacement ratio of 14.5. This means that it is not underpowered and can sail well in light winds.

The boat also has a moderate displacement/length ratio of 257.8, which indicates that it is not too heavy or too light for its size.

The boat has a ballast/displacement ratio of 33.6, which means that it is less stiff and less powerful than some other boats, but also more comfortable and stable.

The boat has a capsize screening of 1.9, which means that it is better suited for ocean passages than some other boats.

The Gib'Sea 126 has a length overall of 13 meters, a waterline length of 10.3 meters, a beam of 4.1 meters, and a draft of 1.9 meters.

It has a displacement of 9,960 kilograms and a ballast of 3,350 kilograms.

The boat has an air draft of about 18 meters, which means that it can pass under most bridges without problems.

The Gib'Sea 126 has a spacious and comfortable interior that can sleep up to eight people in four separate cabins.

The boat also has a large saloon with a U-shaped dinette that can seat up to eight people, a navigation station with a chart table and instruments, and a galley with a stove, an oven, a fridge, and a sink.

The boat has plenty of storage space throughout the interior, as well as ventilation and lighting.

The layout of the Gib'Sea 126 varies depending on the version of the boat. There are two main versions - the owner's version and the charter version:

  • The owner's version has three cabins: one forward cabin with a double berth and one aft cabin with a double berth, and one midship cabin with two single berths.
  • The charter version has four cabins: two forward cabins with double berths and shared head access, two aft cabins with double berths and shared head access, and no midship cabin.

Hull and Deck
The Gib'Sea 126 has a fiberglass hull and deck with teak trimmings.

The hull shape is round-bilged with a moderate freeboard and a flared bow.

The deck is flat with wide side decks and a large foredeck.

The cockpit is spacious and well-protected by a dodger and a bimini.

The cockpit has two large lockers for storage, as well as an access hatch to the engine compartment.

The cockpit also has an integrated swim platform with a ladder for easy access to the water.
