    Hello Mr. Denis. My name is Matthew. I'm writing you because I see that you previously owned a DuFour 12000ct. Would like your honest opinion on this boat, and mainly am interested in the sailing performance you experienced. I'm looking at one that needs some work, and am trying to do my research before going after a boat I've never sailed on.
