Broker's Comments

The Dufour 2800 DL has a lifting stub keel. This has meant that areas others can not reach have been explored. But unlike your average centreboard sloop the clever plate design means that this does not encroach on the spacious interior saloon. She has had a full keel service in Feb 2015
This really is a good example of this boat. The list of features is impressive and she seems to pack so much in to every space, just look at the pictures. She has been well maintained by knowledgeable owners and is anti-fouled and ready for the season
The Dufour 2800 has been a fantastic first boat for the family, with her deep cockpit and clear decks she has given them many adventures. But it would also suit a couple or is easily sailed single-handed.
There are lots of cleverly designed features that need to be viewed to be appreciated.

Amendment to video the dinghy and outboard are not included.
