1981 Dufour 4800, This Dufour performance cruiser was built in 1981 at a time when boats were built to last while still being fast and comfortable.
This particular boat was specially ordered and delivered for Bruno Bich, BIC corporation owner of the Dufour boats at the time. Many features were added such as a fin keel, rudder, and mast for added performance along with top of the line rigging. Since 1981, many improvements and replacements were made to the boat to give it a mint condition rating. It is a perfect boat for cruises with a family of 4-6 with an interest in competing in local races or simply wanting a fast, reliable and comfortable ride. What makes this boat unique is the warm and cozy atmosphere of the
interior, too expensive to reproduce today, the large numbers of berths 7 and the extensive TLC/upgrades given to this boat over the years. A survey, performed in
April 2015, and a full equipment list with extensive pictures are available upon request. Dufour 4800 1981 Hull 41 Designer Johan Valentijn TECHNICAL DATA Length
