Broker's comments

Well balanced, practical and just a lot of fun to sail. The Dufour 38 has it all. Well constructed and finished to, better than many yacht in the same price range. The three cabin layout is practical for family use or sailing with friends during weekends or longer vacations. This Dufour is nicely equipped and well kept. No charter history only sailed privately. Ample stowage on and below decks. Comfortably handled from the safe but large enough cockpit. Has a good equipment list including radar, autopilot, bow thruster and a good set of sails.
