Re: Any Other Dufour Owners Out There ?

Last year we finally bought a 1981 Dufour 35.

We are completely refitting this sailboat. That will take 2 years i think.
Videos are uploaded (and will be in future) right here:
thatsmethistime - YouTube



In our opinion this Dufour 35 is a very fine sailboat for off-shore sailing.

Taco.

I have a 1974 Dufour 31 that I sail on the lower Chesapeake Bay. This our second season with her. We really like this boat.

Re: Any Other Dufour Owners Out There ?

Very excited to be a brand new owner of the Dufour 46 Grand Large. We will be placing it in the charter fleet in the BVIs. She is fully loaded with gen/air, wine storage, aft outdoor galley. Hope to complete nicely with Bene.

Re: Any Other Dufour Owners Out There ?

I just purchased a 79 Dufour 31 and would appreciate any tips on a boat that was evidently used as a day sailor. It has sat for awhile at the marina as a repo for owing back dockage fees. The original motor was refreshed with a westerbeke in 2016. It has a few soft spots on the top side deck but no visible leakage or water damage inside in fact the interior is beauiful. No no Bimini so I need to install one of those. And the plexiglass or whatever it is covering the side cabin windows is start out and ugly looking just wondering if anybody's replace those with opening Windows with screens or whatever.

Re: Any Other Dufour Owners Out There ?

1973 Dufour Safari 27 Tiller
1973 Dufour Safari 27 Wheel
1976 Dufour 27


All three have a Volvo MD6A for the engine. This certainly simplifies things to an extent!

Re: Any Other Dufour Owners Out There ?

My previous boat was a 1973 Dufour 27 Safari, my current one is a 1975 Dufour 34. Both great sailboats, superb quality. Soft decks are not unusual, the Safari required more work than the 34, I fixed both injecting thickened epoxy.

Regarding biminis, I installed the typical fabric ones, which I never liked. I just installed a hard bimini I made mostly from the frame of a previous, smaller one, and FRP panels, very pleased with it.

Dufour 31 windows and hatches
Having just recently bought this Dufour 31 I am searching for info on replacing what appear to be plexiglass windows and hatches. Is this material a specific marine grade or can I just cut out the panels and replace with available pglass ??

Re: Any Other Dufour Owners Out There ?

Hello,

We own a 1970 Dufour Arpege which I did a complete restoration of over a 5 yr. period in our backyard!

Always looking to connect with other Dufour owners.

Re: Any Other Dufour Owners Out There ?

I just purchased a '72 Dufour Arpege 30. I finalize on the weekend of May 16th. She is Moored on the Chesapeake near Annapolis. I intend to sail her down to ICW back to Texas. This is my first blue water sailboat. I have not sailed since the 80's after My Stint in the Navy. This is my Retirement present to myself.
