Dufour 35 sailboat for sale

(Limni, Evia, Greece)


Our beloved Dufour 35 family yacht was built in France by Michel Dufour S.A. She has never been chartered and has had only two previous private owners since new; we have had her for the last decade. She is stable, reliable and fast - but we have to sell her.

We only sail the Aegean from Spring to Autumn and keep her ashore all winter. Sailing with her, from April to October almost every year with family and friends, for short or longer periods is pure joy and fun. We used to sail the islands of Cyclades and Sporades, as well as the main eastern coast of the country.

She has been the companion of our family; has enough room to sleep 6-8 pers and her expansive main table offers a place for every one of us around it. Outdoor dining is also great and preferred to indoor, given the wonderful Mediterranean weather.

She has spacious and safe side decks, good size cockpit covered with removable outdoor cushions. She provides a large amount of space and accommodation for a sailboat of her size (please see plans/photos, or ask for more) and plenty of equipment/accessories are to go with her (detailed catalogue on request). We have only had minor problems all these years which had our prompt attention.

She was kept in various ports (always following our family’s location) from Athens to Volos and recently Limni, Evia (2 hours drive from Athens airport).
She is in very good shape and always ready to sail but she needs some work like cosmetic stuff (e.g. deck paint and some interior decor etc) to look perfect again. The mark ‘fair/good condition’ refers to this work and this obviously reflects to her low price. She is an ideal sailboat for holidays in Greece or elsewhere in the Mediterranean.
