Broker's Comments

Considering the lack of use and being out of the water she looks to be in remarkable fettle how ever she is looking for a new owner who can lavish the care and attention she longs for. This Dufore will need some TLC and some money spending on her but has huge potentiall and there for viewing is a must.
