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.
