Broker Remarks

This very well looked after 1997 Dufour 41 Classic comes, with three cabins, saloon and two heads. She is powered by a Volvo 50hp diesel engine. Her inventory includes in-mast (2021) "North" furling mainsail, (2021) "North" furling genoa, bow thruster, electric windlass, heating, colour chart-plotter, radar, AIS, sprayhood, bimini, dinghy, outboard engine and more. She is Registered in Cork. The owner is reluctantly retiring from sailing, hence the sale.


Mechanical and Rigging


Manufacturer Provided Description

The Dufour 41 Classic is a fast and comfortable cruising yacht. Her elegant design has a low-profile coachroof and a well-balanced hull with wide side decks that make it easy to circulate. She has high-quality deck fittings and rigging. Her comfort is similar to that of a larger boat, with a spacious chart table that makes the navigation station a key feature, a well-thought out galley arrangement, a convivial and well-lighted main saloon. The owner's cabin, forward, includes a large heads compartment. She has a second heads compartment aft that takes care of her twin aft guest cabins, giving excellent privacy. Without doubt, the Dufour 41 Classic is a seaworthy yacht, strong and comfortable, made for hard to please owners who love to sail both with their families and alone. Construction is approved by Germanischer Lloyd's (A 100) and Bureau Veritas.

Broker's comments

Having spent a week on board "Grand Slam" I can confirm that she has been very well cared for. She looks smart both inside and outside. She is easy to handle at sea and in tight spaces. She has the added advantage of new sails, powerful 50hp engine and a powerful bow thruster. Viewing is highly recommended.
