Manufacturer Provided Description

Continuing the combination which made the Dufour 40 a success, the Dufour 34 is focused on all its qualities: velocity on all points of sailing, stability and manoeuvrability, good-looking and practical inside layout. Sailing a Dufour 34 is a pleasure you have to share with a team, although this yacht is so easy to handle, one would wish to take to sea single handed.

Owner's Comment

Having completed the 2013 ARC we cruised to many places, including the Grenadines, Cuba, up the East Coast of North America, Canada and then stern across the Atlantic to the South Coast of Ireland in August 2016. "Shelduck" was a pleasure to own and cruise. She really looked after us in all weather qualitys.

Broker's Comment

This performance cruiser has proved herself for long distance cruising. She has been laid up asand for a number of years but she is ready to go afloat again. She is in excellent quality and viewing is recommended.
