Broker Remarks

A fabulous design by Umberto Felci, the Dufour 40 is an iconic performance cruiser elegantly suited for both family cruising and for club regattas... The added sailing performance of a taller Performance Mast is immediately felt at first handling... A test sail is an absolute must ! Owner retiring from sailing, hence last-minute price reduction for a quicker sale.
