This is one of the few in the US. As with all Dufour's, she is very well made and an even better sailing boat. She is ready for anything. Coastal cruising, offshore voyaging, or around the buoys.


Please call with any questions.

Manufacturer Provided Description

Conceived by Olivier Poncin and developed by Yann Chabaud, the Dufour 38 Classic illustrates the intelligent use of space with no concessions in the use of materials or choice of fittings and navigational elements. Built to quality criteria defined by Dufour, the 38 Classic has been built for both comfort at sea and in port. You will appreciate the quality of the solid mahogany joinery that is dear to Dufour, the use of high quality fittings, the impressive space in the offset saloon, and the spacious galley along with the separate shower stall. The 38 is a blue water cruiser which fits in the middle of the exquisite Dufour Classic range.
