Broker's Comments

This is a pristine example of the Dufour Classic 32.
I find it scarcely credible that she's a 17 year old yacht - I have seen much worse in yachts 12 years younger! Internally and externally she simply delights the viewer, with excellent design features and fastidious husbandry. Perhaps not surprising when one considers that her owner was, until recently, head of Milford Haven's Marine Technology Centre (MITEC).
A modern sloop, light, airy and well planned, with a comprehensive and together navigation suite, she should suit the family sailor who wishes to cruise in comfort whilst retaining a degree of sailing performance. Equally suited to coastal and cross channel passage making, I reckon she'd be a delight to own and a yacht to be proud of.
A yacht to broaden your horizons perhaps?
