Description: Dufour Safari sailboat with lots of impressive upgrades and improvements. The power train consists of a professional factory rebuild (2014) on a Westerbeke four cylinder self-bleeding 30 HP Diesel (less than 200 hrs.). Oil changes can be done in less than 15 minutes. The attached drive-train is also new as follows: Damper plate, Heavy duty adapter plate, Z-transmission, Coupler, Drive Shaft, Drip-less seal cutlass bearing. The rigging is in excellent condition with dual back stays, six shrouds and furling fore-stay. The aluminum mast features interior lines and flotation. All safety lines are new ( 2014 ) with heavy duty in ss cable and fittings. Sails consist of a nearly new 135% furling Genoa (This is a high end QUANTUM SAIL with all the bells and whistles). This sail is crispy and white complete with Sunbrella sun guard.

The main is a fully battened Ray Leonard with double slab reefing and is in good shape (no rips or repairs) and comes with a matching Sunbrella sun cover. Lewmar winches in good working order, CSI Flexible Furler, Boomvang, Cunningham, Travel Car for main sheet,CQR 20 pound anchor and 100 feet of rope with short SS chain. 2nd Danforth lunch hook anchor, Simpson Lawrence 600 Electric windlass with capstan and deck mounted foot switches.

Equipment: A new Raymarine e Series 7" GPS-chartplotter and a Raymarine tiller autopilot was installed last year. These work great and really improve short handed sailing. A new Bimini was added.

Standard marine radio, New blue sea systems AC and DC electrical panels and all new wiring throughout, including the mast. Two batteries. Moore digital sonar depth sounder, Bulk head mounted compass and speed log. The hull is solid hand layered glass in superior condition with new Groco seacocks. The hull was awlgripped a few years back. Misc: Transom mounted SS swim ladder, solid SS bow cleats, Cabin fan, Halogen and LED interior lights, Custom dinette, New interior Cushions (2014), Cockpit cushions (open cell foam), Electric and manual bilge pumps, plug in shore power and plug in generator wiring, SS fuel tank, Solid Brazilian cherry cabin sole, Wine rack, Map table with storage, Panasonic SS inverter microwave, Butane stove top burner, built in icebox and ice chest, deep sink, New Sealand toilet with new 7 gallon holding tank (2014), and electric pump water flush. Two new water storage tanks (2014) and all new water hoses and deck fittings for toilet with electronic flushing (2014). Hanging closet , V-bunk cabin with locking doors. This sailing boat has a very low center of gravity giving a stable ride without excessive healing. This sailboat is at its best in heavy weather.

This boat comes with its custom designed and built tri-axle trailer. ( The trailer has only 3500 miles and is very nice.) . It is unique in that it will transport a wide variety of both sailboats and power boats and can be changed over in under an hour with just a set of standard wrenches. Specs. are as follows; Max boat length power or sail= 32 feet, max payload=13000 lbs. keel depth up to 6 ft.

The trailer has truck style heavy duty drum brakes on all three axles. It has a 7 inch high strength beam with 10 gauge hot dipped galvanized cross members. It also has an extension that allows you to use a public boat launch instead of crane!

This is a cool, well built and sturdy boat and fun to sail. We are a family of 5 and want to get something bigger. Compare others in this size and price range and I think you'll see the value in this one. (Low hours Diesel, good electronics, good sails, comfortable cockpit, very nice trailer!)

Contact me with questions or to set up a time to view. It's still in the water. Winter storage is paid.
