12m Dufour 395 Nautitech

Does anyone own or have any experience of these boats? I'm trying to decide whether to take a look at one in Croatia. She seems to be very competativly priced compared.

Are they suitable for a long term crusing plan in the med?

Two things

Have a look under the rear of the bridge deck and second - have a look at the helm position

I understand that the Helm positions are very exposed. What do you mean by have a look under the rear of the bridge deck. Is this a reference to clearance or known faults?

Clearance - but more importantly extremely square edge protuberances

The Dufour looks similar to the Fountaine. Are they related in any way? (I haven't seen one up close)
