hi, I recently acquired a 73 Dufour 41 - referred to as the "Sortilege" model. (not the later "Classic") it is a ketch and also available as a sloop.
Flush deck, walk thru to small aft cabin and fin keel. Sailboatdata has basic stats for the boat.

Initially I will be using it for part time live aboard and also will be fiitting it out as a test bed for certain innovative "off the grid" technologies
that will have uses to boaters as well as land based folks.
Eventually she ( Sea Witch III
) may take me offshore.
If anyone has any information or stories to offer, please post up.
I understand there are more in Europe and at least 2 in charter, including one in Madagascar !
