Dufour 36 Classic - Known for their high quality of build and good sailing capabilities in a variety of weathers, the Dufour 36 Classic is a popular buy on the pre-owned market. This particular example is a real credit to her Owner, who has clearly maintained her to a very high standard. She was the Show Boat at the 2003 Southampton Boat Show and comes with some extra specification from standard. In addition, the present Owner has fitted a full cockpit canopy, making extra accommodation.
