The companionway lands with the Nav station to starboard and aft head to port.  Two equal-sized aft cabins (doubles) flank the  companionway and each has a good storage.

The galley runs down the port side of the interior, with dinette to starboard and centrally situated bench provides seating at the table, an easily accessible box for the water pumps and other utilities as well as a back rest against which the cook can brace in lumpy seas.

Through the forward bulkhead is a head, to port, a v-berth in the bow and to starboard is a bunk cabin.  The current owners have taken the doors off the cabins so that there is easy flow in the forward area.

Built for speed and comfort, the Dufour Gib'Sea is sea-kindly and strong and she sails beautifully.  The open transom and twin helms allows easy access to the water .  The cockpit is comfortable and safe.  A large bimini provides excellent shade for the cockpit as well as a base for the solar panels.  The 4-cabin/2 head interior layout makes this an idea set-up for a cruising family, with 3 double berths and 1 bunk cabin.
