Dragonfly 32/35

I can get a second hand DF35 for 100.000 euro less than a new DF32. The DF32 is lighter weight, but not by much. The DF35 is a bigger boat and carries more sail. Iīve had discussions during this summer with a DF35 owner (who is also a previous DF920 and DF1200 owner), who went to test sail the DF32 a couple of weeks ago. He couldnīt feel any difference regarding speed. To me, there are other differences that are more significant. If I didnīt have the additional money to buy the DF32, Iīd go for a second hand DF35. But right now, Iīm leaning towards the DF32.

If you want to discuss this further, please pm me!

Kind regards,
Mr W
Please discuss it here.

I think tat the biggest difference between the 32 and 35 is that the 35 has an offshore potential bigger than the one of the 32. The 32 seems to me much of a coastal cruiser while the 35 has bluewater potential. I have noticed that several 35 are used for that purpose.
