Broker's Comments

A much loved boat, this Dufour 2800 ,during her years of ownership, has proven to be a safe and comfortable yacht being sailed singled handed, as a couple and for family cruising holidays. She has been cruised extensively along the South and West coasts of England, the North Coast of France and the Channel Islands. Sale is as a result of upgrading to a blue water cruiser for longer haul adventures.
She has been maintained and upgraded considerably over the last four years with the key work being a reconditioned engine in Spring 2010 and new Standing Rigging and Genoa Plastimo Roller Furling in Spring 2013.
