Broker's Comments

This Dufour 385 has the dual purpose of ocean going and family cruising.

The Dufour Grand Large 385(40th Anniversary Additition) was the first of the "NEW DUFOUR CRUISING YACHT RANGE" she has great accomodation with a linear galley and large aft heads.

Her spacious cockpit with twin steering wheels is laid out ideally for short handed sailing

A seaworthy and weatherly yacht for the cruising family and a chance to aquire a nearly new yacht with all the goodies at a very competative price.

She has had only 1 owner from new and has never been chartered.

These boat details are subject to contract.
