Dufours info appreciated
Many thanks for the very useful response. Kind of what I suspected. Actually, from what I've seen, the best of that type of boat in terms of speed is the X-boat range - sailed on a lovely X-442 in Thailand recently, which though very solid feeling went remarkably well in light airs. But waaay outside my price range! There is a more limited range of good yachts available second hand in Asia than in the US or Europe. Appreciate your comments. Regards, Nightworker.
