About this Dufour 40 E


Remarks :

DUFOUR 40E Built by Dufour in 2011. White GRP hull, deck & superstructure, fin keel, copper coated hull abraded to reactivate - 2022, twin wheel steering, teak cockpit, seats, side decks and coachroof, Volvo Penta 55HP diesel sail drive inboard engine, bow thruster, 3 x cabin layout, 2 x head compartments, full sail wardrobe of Ultimate/North sails, (view in inventory), full electronics (see under Inventory), diesel cabin heating, hot water and lots more. 

This is a rare opportunity to purchase a performance cruiser constructed by the Dufour shipyard. As soon as you step aboard "Mojito" you feel the quality, design and performance nature of the 40E which would be at home cruising with the family in comfort as well as  pushing the limits round the island. "Mojito" has 3 well appointed cabins as well as two heads. She has been well cared for and has an extensive inventory and sail wardrobe.

Early view is recommended as very few are available on the open market. She is lying afloat in Chichester Marina, viewing by appointment.
