Dufour 45e Performance

AU$245,000.00 Sold

The 2009 Dufour 45e Performance makes an excellent coastal cruiser and or club racer, and this one has loads of the creature comforts of home in one package. Only two owners and has always being a private vessel.

The “L” shaped galley and saloon are roomy with excellent natural light. The design of the dining table allows for it to be folded when additional dining seating is required but folding away when not required. The fully equipped galley has gas cooking, a double door fridge, excellent storage and lots of bench space.

The design provides three good sized double cabins. The forward owner’s cabin features a semi-island double and ensuite, and there are two aft doubles. There is additional toilet and shower.

Up top there is a large walk-through cockpit with modern fold-down transom. Deck gear includes four electric winches, life-raft, tender and outboard. A low hour 54hp Volvo Penta delivers the power, and there is a Bow Thruster for docking convenience, a water maker for those extended passages, and even ducted heating for the times spent cruising in southern waters. Power is on hand with solar panels and a wind generator, and a B&G and Raymarine navigation package including autopilot is fitted. Rigging is all good (certificate provided) and there is an excellent sail wardrobe included.

The vessel is fully managed and was completely checked over late 2018 and is ready for her next adventure.
