Description: Dufour Grand Large 445 "Carpe Diem Infinity"
"Carpe Diem Infinity" translates to "SEIZE the DAY". This superb Dufour Grand Large 445 represents a great opportunity to do just that. In such a vessel you cruise the coast or cross oceans safely and in complete comfort. "Carpe Diem Infinity" is comprehensively equipped and presents in outstanding condition. The wide beam enhances stability and space above and below deck. A couple will handle this big vessel around the marina or at sea safely and efficiently. *Primary winches are within easy reach of the wheels and the German mainsheet can be tended from the helm, allowing a solo watch-keeper to steer and trim. *A drop down boarding/swim platform provides easy access between the twin wheels to the sheltered, spacious cockpit. *Sail management systems including reefing are all handled from the cockpit. *A bow-thruster takes the drama out of marina manoeuvres. *Accommodation is all about light, space and comfort from cockpit living (with table/BBQ) to below deck spaces with three private cabins and a magnificent saloon. *A 75 hp Volvo Penta powers the big vessel through the chop quietly and economically. "Carpe Diem Infinity" is an Australian registered vessel (AMSA) ON 862345.
