Broker's Comments

This Dufour 2800 is a well presented mid sized family cruiser. the high freeboard allows for standing headroom in excess of 6ft throughout the open saloon leading through to the spacious double berth in the forepeak.

The smart interior finish, with good use of interior mouldings and enough wood finish, gives her a traditional look.

She is coming up to 40 years old and as you would expect there is some wear and tear on the cockpit and deck surfaces, all cosmetic.

This Dufour 2800 is a great mid sized family cruiser and she has been meticulously maintained and is presented in exceptionally good order throughout. Well worth consideration if looking for this type of boat especially in light of the recent price reduction.

An inflatable tender and outboard is available by separate negotiation.
