Broker's Comments

The Dufour 455 is a nice looking boat with a good size rig and decent turn of speed. The practical cockpit layout has easy entry via the swim platform which is very important for Blue Water cruising and constant dinghy usage along with davit system.

The interior is an excellent layout with large forward cabin and on suite dry head.

This example is superb throughout. There is so many new upgrades there is to much to list plus recent services prior to its transatlantic crossing on the ARC in December.

The boat is presently in use and being constantly fettled by its fastidious owner.

Total pleasure to photograph; such a well prepared boat.
