Broker Remarks

A stunning example of a well-maintained owners’ version of the popular Dufour 455 Grand’ Large model, this boat comes with a high specification and super-complete inventory for a comfortable blue-water cruiser. “Kittiwake” is a 2007-edition yacht kitted out for serious offshore sailing, and she is reluctantly offered for sale as owner upgrading to larger yacht.
