Need info on 2007 Dufour 455 GL, or GL in general?

I am currently looking at a 2007 Dufour 455 Grand Large, but there does not seem to be a lot of information about them compared to other boats.

Does anyone have any comments on the Dufour Grand Large boats (Build quality, problems, faults etc), or the 2007 Dufour 455 Grand Large in particular? First hand experience from an owner would be great!

Does anyone know about any forums for the Dufour GL series? I have found a couple, but they are not heavily trafficked, and in particular lacking information on the 455 GL.

Re: Need info on 2007 Dufour 455 GL, or GL in general?

Met up with one this July in a little town called Griquet on the Northern Peninsula here in Newfoundland. 7 in the crew from Paris and they seemed very happy. Was invited aboard for a drink and to discuss good ports of call hheading south. They had arrived in 30 knots and 4-5 metre seas and had no complaints. This impressed me as the Straits up there are known for heavy tides and very steep seas.
