Broker's Comments

A project with a difference. This Boat has never been in the water! The previous owner never completed the part built project. The Dufour make is well respected and this design was ahead of its time with twin aft cabins and a good sized saloon. Much of the equipment is there to complete the build. The interior will probably clean up well and the exterior needs a good clean and polishing. The gelcoat seems to be sound under the grime.
