The Dufour Classic 32,"Salut" is the ideal family cruiser-racer. Safe and easily handled by a couple and efficient under sail or motor (20 hp Volvo Penta with Saildrive). The cockpit is deep and well-sheltered with a folding table and fitted cushions. The decks are uncluttered. Below deck, you will enjoy the cosy ambience of the fine mahogany timber fit-out and the spaciousness of the saloon and private cabins all enhanced by plenty of light and ventilation from big deck hatches and ports.
Call Paul to arrange an inspection. "Salut" is ready for you to step aboard for a summer of cruising.
