Dufour 50 Classic - opinions?

We are traveling in the morning to take a look at a possible new boat for our family. We believe this boat will be a good fit for what we are looking for given its size and layout (above and below decks) and it is currently at the top of our list - but I would like to ask the experts here the general opinions of this model or lacking that any generalized info on Dufour's of the 1995-2005 vintage.

General observations are welcome, as are any known issues with this series we should be watching out for.

Here is the sailboat data page for the model (we are looking at a slightly newer early 2000's boat):

DUFOUR CLASSIC 50 sailboat specifications and details on

"we" are three adults and two children, with liveaboard Caribbean cruising as our focus - with potential for longer transoceanic passages when the kids get a bit older (we would like to get to the Med/Europe at some point).
