The hull is laid up in glass fibre laminate and polyester resin, and was Epoxied from new.

Fully Battened main with ball bearing batten cars on track and lazy jacks and lazy bag

The Doufour 41 Classic is a quick and responsive cruising Yacht, her elegant design with a low profile coachroof, a well-balanced hull, the wide side decks that allow the crew to manoeuvre and circulate easily on deck are just some of the benefits of this design.
The Doufour 41 Classic has proven to be a seaworthy, strong and comfortable blue water cruising yacht.
The added incentive for purchasers with this yacht is the option of a transferable berth; that could be available until 30th march 2014 by negotiation. This would allow purchasers outside of the area the opportunity to explore some of the beautiful coastal waters around the Southwest.
