Broker Remarks

This Dufour 34 Performance yacht for sale with Network Yacht Brokers Plymouth is a very nice example, she has been lovingly cared for and maintained by the current owners who have owned her for the past six years.
The Dufour 34 Performance was designed to give performance sailing enthusiasts a feel for speed, control and maintain a strong level of comfort.
The 34 Performance sails extremely well, she handles like a big dinghy although feels safe & secure when in a seaway.
This yacht is easily handled by two crew, or even single handed, giving excellent passage time with her turn of speed, this is helped by her two blade folding propeller new in 2014, deep LEAD fin keel, performance mast & a great sail plan. 
There are elements to this yacht that any sailing enthusiast has seen throughout their sailing experience, weather that be sailing big boats, sportsboats, or dinghies. 
All deck gear & running blocks are by Harken, which many see as the leading brand for sailing hardware, every aspect to make this boat sail as comfortably & easily as possible has been thought of.
The mainsheet traveller, genoa tracks, cars & backstay all have good purchase systems to make sail handling as simple yet effective as possible.
The Dufour 34 Performance does not neglect the cruising lifestyle that people of all ages want from a boat, below decks she has many components that make life at sea that bit more luxurious. She benefits from EBERSPACHER diesel fired cabin heating in all cabins, she also has a adequate galley with a two burner hob & oven, she has a large refrigerator for food stores, hot and cold pressurised water & plenty of stowage.
Both the owner's cabin, and crew cabin are a generous size, with full length double berths and two more single berths in the saloon for when sailing with a full crew, she also has a good size heads with a shower and an efficient wet locker.
