This much sought after cruiser racer from the highly regarded Dufour stable is the two cabin version and ideal for long distance cruising, marrying speed and comfort. The large, well appointed cockpit features a large wheel, chartplotter and duplicate (P&S) wind and tri-data instruments. All of the running rigging runs back to the cockpit and wide, secure, teak laid decks make for safe movement around the boat, with the main anchor on an electric windlass. The sail wardrobe features Sanders Pentax Cruiselam Main (original) and furling Genoa (2014), lightly used Sanders Carbon Main and Genoa, Spinnaker, Asymetric Spinnaker, Storm Jib and Trysail. Below decks this boat is the 2 cabin layout with aft double, manual heads (with sink and shower) and separate shower to starboard, galley (gas hob, grill and oven, fridge, double sink) to port, chart table to starboard, seating and table converting to double berth to port and sofa/single berth to starboard. The forecabin has a double berth and small sofa.

Broker's view: "This is the much sought after 2 cabin version, with a racing pedigree and comfortable accommodation. The boat is presented in outstanding condition with an impressive sail wardrobe. Owner selling as looking to upgrade to a bigger boat."
