Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
In appearance it looks very similar to the Dufour 2800, which most people know. It is only when they are side by side that the difference in size is apparent.
The 29 is a rare vessel, both in the U.K. and in Europe, as the majority of the hulls went to the United States. Perhaps because they are unknown, they represent very good value for money, offering a better turn of speed (on paper) than the 2800 and larger accommodation, for about the same price. This is an excellent starter yacht with surprisingly comfortable accomodation for its size.

Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

Em aparencia é muito similar ao dufour 2800 que a maior parte das pessoas ja conhece, só quando eles estão lado a lado é que se nota a diferença do tamanho, este 29 pés é um veleiro nascido no U.K e na Europa, a maior quantidade de cascos foi para os Estados Unidos. Um barco ideal para principiantes com acomodações muito comfortaveis para um barco deste tamanho.
