Dufour 40

Anybody any experience of the Dufour 40, I have been looking at the anniversary model with shoal keel (1.65m) but have heard differing tales of its handling capabilities.

Re: Dufour 40

it's been a long time but did you get any inputs on your question? (Here or somewhere else) I'm about to purchase a 2005 shoal keel Dufour 40 and have also heard very different tales, opinions and theories :-) Some love it some don't but haven't had inputs from real shoal keel owners...

Thanks for any input on this.
