Description: This is a 1983 Dufour 12000 CT 45' ketch rigged sailboat. She is a great family cruiser and many have been used to circumnavigate. This boat was built in La Rochelle France and sailed the Atlantic before crossing into the Pacific and spending years in Hawaii, Japan, and Alaska before returning. They only made a handful of these boats and most can still be found around the globe. My family of five lived aboard for about a year and our plans of cruising have been pushed off a few years for now.

I am a marine ABYC mechanic and have rebuilt many of the systems on this boat. It has entirely new electrical wiring. Most of the electronics are new or repurposed used equipment. All the plumbing is new. There is a new washer, new hot water maker, new battery charger, new chartplotter, AIS transponder, new many things.

The engine is an original 1983 Perkins 4.236 that was rebuilt by the previous owner in the early 2000s. I'm unsure of the hours but I have put about 200 on it since I started keeping track. I recently replaced the entire exhaust system and completely serviced the engine in 9/2019. I've been religious about engine maintenance the last two years.

The boat was hauled in 3/2019 and the bottom was sand blasted and re-coated with 4 layers of epoxy and then bottom paint. The entire boat was painted at that time as well. All new zincs were installed as well as a new cutlass bearing. Also, a new speedometer and depth thru hull was installed.

The teak deck was removed and recovered with kiwi grip non skid in 2016.

The sale can include a 2010 west Marine hard bottom inflatable 11' with a 2019 Honda 20hp outboard $4,000.

The boat still has many to dos to cross an ocean though in the last year we have sailed it to the Dry Tortuga's twice, across Florida Bay to Ft Myers and back, and up and down the keys to Key Largo.
