I'm just getting into the market for a sailboat and I'm fascinated by the Dufour Arpege. Any info on these boats would be greatly appreciated. I don't see that many for sale on the East Coast.
I didn't understand a word of that video but I still enjoyed it.I had a friend that a 27, and then an Arpege. He loved them both. I remember both them them being under canvassed, so life in a light air venue might suck. Woodwork below was great, with tons and tons of little clever storage areas.
The page and vid is interesting, if in swedish....

What I like best... is that it is paid for .Thanks Fmueller...........What do you like about the boat compared to "modern" boats? Also, what problems, if any, have you had with the boat that you think I may want to look out for when buying. The biggest concern that I have with one of the boats I'm looking at is the age of the engine. Otherwise, everything I have read and heard say it is a great boat.
