Getting back to that Felci design with a nice barbecue
(alright the rest is also well designed), some would say that it is a beautiful boat but not a great cruising boat. Some would think that a good cruising boat or a passagemaker has to be ugly or at least not as beautiful as a performance boat.
Well, one of the first Dufour 500 was sold to a Brazilian that picked up the boat in France and sailed it to Brazil. I would say that with moderately bad weather the boat seems very stable...and fast.
The boat has a good and nice cruising interior:
A very nice design. I hope it would help to get Dufour in its tracks again.
