I though find the 35 as both too long and too wide folded, also with a mast height making some interesting bridges impossible. And having to go through the toilet to get to the forward cabin in the 35 seems to be better handled in the 32. But shure, there are some DF 35's at good prices on the market. And I thought Dragonfly would retain value well.....

Hi,

Regarding Paulos note that the df35 would be more suitable for blue water cruising, I have to say the differences between the two are very small. The 35 is a little heavier and slightly longer. The amas of the 32 are extended one foot forward of the main hull, so almost as long as on the 35.

As mentioned before, weight difference is not much on the two, so the choice would depend on other things, such as interior layout.
