Overview

The Dufour Performance 44 exceeded her design brief as a fast, fun and easy passage-maker with excellent living accommodation. She reaches hull speed easily in F2-3, sustains 8-9 knots in the right conditions and still offers fingertip steering. Reviews are linked below.
This yacht, prepped and ready for the ARC, comes with extensive upgrades and reinforcements plus recent replacement of key areas including standing rigging, skin fittings and saildrive seals.
She is newly serviced, antifouled and polished. Ready for Biscay, or more.
