Dufour LaCoste 42

I am looking at a Dufour 42 LaCoste. Information (they only made 12 or 14) is rather lacking. Has anyone here actually sailed on one of these? Any info is appreciated.

Re: Dufour LaCoste 42

I looked at Pryde in MA, back in August, but I only went aboard her, I didn't sail her. The only online information I was able to find on the boat was an entry for her on the S&S website, and an article about her, on the 1001 Boats blog. If you read the comments on the S&S webpage, there are some owners who post their email address, which you may want to try contacting.

Good Luck..

I sailed the boat. It is fun and fast upwind. Deep draft. Could be a problem anywhere on east coast. Somewhat plasticy in appearance as most modern boats. Overall boat looked and felt good, no signs of structural aging.

Re: Dufour LaCoste 42

Thanks so much for the answers. In reference to the first gentleman, I contacted two of the owners on S&S site. i have talked to one, and am awaiting the other. The specific one I am looking at actually has a centerboard. It is about 5 board up, and 8 board down draft.

My last lady was a Tayana 42 center cockpit. A divorce led her away from me. I am remarried, kids grown, and looking to be on the water again.

Not sure why the draft would be a problem anywhere on the east coast. Here in Rhode Island, for example, the water is deep. Maybe you mean down south.
