Manufacturer Provided Description
Continuing the combination which made the Dufour 40 a success, the Dufour 34 is focused on all its qualities: speed on all points of sailing, stability and manoeuvrability, good-looking and practical interior layout. Sailing a Dufour 34 is a pleasure you have to share with a crew, although this yacht is so easy to handle, one would wish to take to sea single handed.

Having completed the 2013 ARC we cruised to many places, including the Grenadines, Cuba, up the East Coast of North America, Canada and then back across the Atlantic to the South Coast of Ireland in August 2016. "Shelduck" was a pleasure to own and cruise. She really looked after us in all weather conditions.
This performance cruiser has proved herself for long distance cruising. She has been laid up ashore for a number of years but she is ready to go afloat again. She is in excellent condition and viewing is recommended.
