A joint properly glued together with adhesive, will be as sold as one using bolts. Dufour seem to be quite popular in the UK and generally need a weathertight boat there. If your dealer doesn't carry them...he's not going to want to see you go away to buy one.
On the other hand, Dufour have never been very common or popular in the US, and that might impact your resale value quite a bit.
