Broker's Comments

Dufour built two different Dufour 27’s, the Safari has a traditional raised cabin and modest freeboard. The other is the Dufour 27 which has a distinctive flush deck and raised freeboard in order to accommodate six-foot interior cabin. She can sleep 4/5 and has generous headroom below.

The Dufour 27 was built for coastal cruising with easy handling and good sea keeping qualities which makes her an ideal boat for a family or for those learning to sail. This boat has spacious accomodation and has been well maintained and presented by her current owners.
