No Idea about the boat. But there is something very "freeing" about diving off a boat mid ocean (@1min).

Looks like it could be an old Dufour 27+... mind a couple of late 70's- early 80's UK marques looked similar... could have done with a better look inside..

Some nice footage here... I wish people would not add this ridiculous music tracks to the vids... it's extremely annoying.

Older boat; wire rope halyard winch; nipped in stern; gold anodized mast. Not big at all - I'm guessing about 30 feet.

BTW - that looked more like 'trolling for big ones'.

Yes, I would say Dufour too.

At first I was wondering what all the streamers were for and a little later I realized they were Christmas decorations. Splendid video.

According to another video of the same boat , it's a Poker:


Architect: Michel Joubert, yard: Jeanneau, 619 built from 1972 to 1978
LOA: 8.25m, WL: 6.40m, B: 2.85m, Disp: 2.2t

I met one in February, waiting for the bridge in Vannes river to open.

Lol. No I wasnt trolling. Though, after I posted it I consider that a small hornets nest may be stirred up.
