Successor to the DUFOUR 27 in 1978. This was the second most popular Dufour of all time, it has been said.
For a 27 foot yacht it has a very generous interior layout, probably helped by the high free-board. So not only have you generous headroom for a 40 year old design, it offers bunk space for five (5) persons utilising space behind the heads compartment and under the cockpit seat.
The chart table is cleverly positioned over the port side bunk and extends forwards to reveal the extent of the chart space.
There has been much spent on the yacht in recent years and therefore this represents a very good option for a budget yacht.
