Smile Dufour 35 Owners..

Hi all,

1 year ago I purchased a very pretty Dufour 35 (circa 1974) which is sat in a marina in the Med. (far cheaper than UK & the food & sunshine are more reliable)
My question is: are there any owners on Sailnet & if so I would be very interested to chat as I am currently in the middle of refurbishing her & I was looking for ideas on what to do with the galley & the main saloon.

thanks

I have a 1972 Dufour 35, at present refurbishing/modernising it, this yacht has circumnavigated. I have crawled over every inch/mm of this and am very impressed how well it is built. A very nice craft.
