(Fairhope, AL USA)
1980 ONE OWNER DUFOUR SAILBOAT, KETCH 46FT, LOADED
'Blue Aegean II' looks like "BRAND NEW", both on the interior as well as the exterior.
It is now located in Thessaloniki, Greece
Ideal for Cruising and Live on Board.
Since I purchased the Boat, I have upgraded many of the original equipment.
After many years of sailing in the Gulf of Mexico, we decided to sail the boat across the Atlantic to Greece.
The crossing took place in 1994.
Prior to the crossing we replaced the original Perkins Engine, installed new Radar, new GPS System, new Autopilot, new SSB, new Icom Ham Radio, installed Pro-Furl Head Sail System with Heavy Weight Head Sail, replaced the Main with Heavy Full Batten Sail, replaced the Stove and many other improvements.
In 2001, we sailed the Boat to the Dufour Yard in the Mediterranean to the Pin Rolland Facility. The Boat stayed in the Yard for approximately 12 months. Factory Personnel removed the original Teak Deck, inspected the Fiberglass Deck and installed New Teak Deck (approx. 1/2" thick). While in the yard, we inspected all Rigging, checked the Keel Bolts and performed other miscellaneous maintenance.
In 2008 we replaced all Three (3) Air Conditioners, installed a Transformer to convert 220 Volts Shore Power to 110 Volt Ship Power.
In 2009, we replaced the 1994 Autopilot with a current unit.
This in brief describes all the upgrades on the Boat.
