Broker's Comments

This 2800 is one of the nicest examples from the Dufour stable. They were producing well built and thoughtfully laid out cruisers throughout the 1970's. This boat has had very light use this season. The sprayhood and sail cover were replaced in 2003. It has been stored ashore each winter, and is currently still cradled. She was pressure washed when lifted earlier this year, but her decks are now in need of cleaning. (Those pesky Starlings know a good perch when they see one.) This boat will suit a couple, or young family, who are looking for an economical means of getting out on the water. The saloon is well proportioned, with all the facilities to make cruising comfortable.

This boat has been viewed and photographed by Miles Booker of Boatshed Sussex. Register or log in to see 45 more photos of this boat. These boat details are subject to contract.
