Broker's Comments

The Dufour 2800 has a great reputation for being a robust well built and seaworthy cruiser. They are well designed inside too with accommodation for up to 5 in two cabins. This boat has been well looked after she needs little doing to be ready for the new season - doesn't even need antifouling having a copperbot!
