1998 Dufour Classic 38
- Stock #095699 -
VERY COMFORTABLE CRUISER - EXTRA BATTERY POWER ***RACED BY A PROFESSIONAL***
The one and current owner (16 years) has won several racing competitions with this 'go-fast' cruiser. She is rigged for competition, but doubles well as a family weekend cruiser or for single-handed sailing.
Very stylish and well-appointed, the Dufour Classic 38 has a world-wide following. Well known in Europe, this strongly built French cruiser is a favorite among racing enthusiasts on this side of the pond as well.
A streamlined deck house and slight sheer are typical of modern-day cruising boats. Visibility from the helm is excellent, within the spacious and comfortable cockpit. The setup provides separation from the crew working the jib and main sheets, the latter set over the cabin house, giving excellent control of the main.
Known for their excellent woodwork and joinery, she's as beautiful as she is rugged and competitive.

The Galley has a double stainless sink, is loaded with cabinets and features a 2-burner stove and good-sized oven.
Attending to business prevents this owner from using here as he once did. There's that bitter-sweet day in boating that we all dread.
