used to own a DF35, and owns a DF1200 now. You could message him.
I've only been aboard the DF32. I seriously considered it or the DF35 for cruising, but I have 2 children
, and want a boat with at least 2 heads.
However, if it was just me and the wife, the DF35 would be ideal in many ways. Trimaran
= smoother ride than monos or cats, and the DF35 is very fast, and would speed right past any luxurious crusing cat. You can beach it too, which is a nice plus. And if you get the version with the galley
on the starboard side, then you have a pretty decent-sized galley
for a small boat.
The downside? Not much room for kids
or guests, and the traveller bisects the cockpit
, which looks like it would be annoying. The water
tank is only 37 gallons, so I would strongly recommend a watermaker
. I'm also not wild about a curtain instead of a door on the aft cabin
, but if it's for just a couple, it should be fine.
Expensive too, but Dragonflys have a reputation for quality. And their resale value seems to be high.
