Dufour Atoll 43...need advise/info please

I''m interested to hear from anyone with first hand knowledge (second hand would do) on the sailing ability of the Dufour Atoll series. How does she handle? Can she go close to the wind? Tacking? Heeling? Responsiveness? Any thought you have would be appreciated.

Double helm control. I''m assuming that''s due to the large galley/salon right in front of the helm, and a helmsman would have to shift from one side to the other to see what coming at them.

What about storage? Thanks.
