Dufour's 35 shows French boat building in the late 70's was well ahead of its time. This model incorporates design features copied by many builders in the years that followed and today is still a very functional mid sized cruiser with good sailing performance. Her fin keel and full skeg rudder are very manageable underway and is close quarters. There were 450 of this model built over a 13 year production run as a testament to the models appeal.
Notre Temps (Our Time) is a fine example of the model. This boat was day sailed in San Francisco until it was transported to Anacortes WA in 2015. It has been lightly used and well maintained by her current owners of the past 12 years. The interior is largely original and shows little wear. The current owners have been good stewards of the boat and commissioned numerous quality upgrades. Nortre Temps is clean, well maintained and ready for a new owner.
This model features a flush deck which increases interior volume considerably over her trunk cabin sisters. The flush deck also creates an open and level deck area. The deep cockpit is well protected and comfortable with contoured seat backs.
