Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
This fabulous Dufour 29 of 1978 is a tidy example of this ideal sized boat if sailing solo or with friends & family.
Two real bonuses with this charming sloop are its 2009 Beta diesel engine & steering wheel operation, what more could you want.

Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
