103NM now but even if it is not showing yet I believe Armel is recovering: He has now a better angle and more wind but I don't believe he can recover 50nm and probably it will recover just a bit over half of that.

The only option for Armel now is not following François in what regards the passage of the Doldrums, that are ahead, and hope its choice is better than the one from François. If they come out of it with a 50Nm difference I don't think Armel can pull it off, unless François got in mechanical troubles.

Moody 41 . Sense 46 . Dufour 36p

No, it is not a comparative but just three new movies featuring 3 very different and interesting boats. Nice to look at

Some action with small cats

The best is having fun sailing, if we can't, well, looking at other guys having fun is better than nothing

Time out.

Guys this will be my last day on this thread, at least regarding the way I have been running it. I have to prepare my sailing summer and have other stuff to do. This takes simply too much time.

I will try to reply to all that pose concrete questions but I cannot say how long it will take to reply.

This is not my thread anymore, but your thread. Along the time there were many knowledgeable sailors that have participated. It is all yours I hope you can maintain it with the same interest that justified more than a thousand hits a day.

Best regards to all.

Paulo

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Thanks Paulo,

I know how you feel, I've been going non stop trying to outfit the new boat and doing some weather routing for folks I know.


This is the most worthwhile thread I have ever had the chance to read along with the information on Morgans Cloud site. I wish more sailors would understand how much good info you have supplied and understand that with some effort you can buy a new boat of a quality design for cruising. So many times you can go new and cheaper than rebuilding an old one. It may take a little time to see the saving but well worth it.

Have a great summer in the Med. I would have loved to meet up with you but we will be on the Atlantic coast of Europe this summer enjoying all there is to see and meeting I'm sure many interesting cruisers. We will cross in November so maybe you will be back home by then.

Cheers

Steve And Tracy

Dufour 500

I like it, I like it a lot.

A Felci design and a slightly different boat from the other mass production cruisers on this class: Less freeboard, 6 winches in an innovative position and one that will allow a very good control by a solo sailor and a very well nicely designed interior. Regarding the outside, the best looker on this class...and normally boats that look well sail well. If I was on the market for a 50ft cruiser I would certainly check out this one carefully. A very beautiful boat that certainly manages to hide very well the compromises regarding this type of boats.

Possibly the galley could be bigger for living permanently on the boat but then the saloon would not have been as magnificent and big. Anyway its lesser space on the bench is compensated by an unusual number of cabinets.

I guess that design criteria would depend on the utilization it is given to the boat but I bet that they know that this boat, big as it is it will not be for the charter market and that most of the time it will be sailed and lived only by two, and for two the galley is more than enough. it is designed to receive aboard a large number of guests, not for many to live aboard.














Take a look at the interior here (360º):

500 - Grand Large - DUFOUR Yachts

Some bad quality movies:
