Dufour 3800 - GREAT SEA BOAT!


This is a very clean vessel with excellent features. The Dufour 3800 design provides a high-quality & unusually sea-kindly vessel.  Somewhat rare on the West Coast, they are, nevertheless, very suitable for ocean sailing conditions here; as the French Coast, where they are built, is much like the Coast of Oregon & Northern California. The interior of this model has excellent headroom and the open space is more like a 40 footer. One gets a little European Class with this appealing cruising or weekend adventure sloop. Loaded with desirable features, she offers a dedicated navigation station directly forward of the starboard quarter-berth, Galley is to Port of the Nav Station, there is a large salon with bench seat to starboard that converts to two bunks and there is also a large settee/ship's table that converts to a full double bunk (she sleeps eight in bunks). Features include an enclosed marine head with shower w/H & C pressure water. The forward stateroom features a double bunk & privacy. As noted earlier, The Dufour 3800 is an unusually seaworthy & comfortable design & this particular vessel is both an Hawaii & a Mexico Vet. Always well-maintained, she was recently re-powered with a new Volvo Diesel as well as having received new motor mounts & the drive line overhauled, trued & aligned including new seals & coupling. New engine & sailing instruments have also just been installed. An easy-to-sail vessel, she features Roller Furling, all lines led aft for short-handed sailing, Wheel Steering on Pedestal, Lazy Jacks (feeding the main easily into the zipper-top sail bag/cover) & MORE!  This yacht is a great value in a well-kept & nicely-outfitted craft & she's ready to go! Hawaii or Mexico again, anyone? "KALLISTO" will make it easy to do.
