Manufacturer Provided Description

The Dufour 41 Classic is a fast and comfortable cruising yacht. Her elegant design has a low-profile coachroof and a well-balanced hull with wide side decks that make it easy to circulate. She has high-quality deck fittings and rigging. Her comfort is similar to that of a larger boat, with a spacious chart table that makes the navigation station a key feature, a well-thought out galley arrangement, a convivial and well-lighted main saloon. The owner's cabin, forward, includes a large heads compartment. She has a second heads compartment aft that takes care of her twin aft guest cabins, giving excellent privacy. Without doubt, the Dufour 41 Classic is a seaworthy yacht, strong and comfortable, made for hard to please owners who love to sail both with their families and alone. Construction is approved by Germanischer Lloyd's (A 100) and Bureau Veritas.

Broker's comments

Having spent a week on board "Grand Slam" I can confirm that she has been very well cared for. She looks smart both inside and outside. She is easy to handle at sea and in tight spaces. She has the added advantage of new sails, powerful 50hp engine and a powerful bow thruster. Viewing is highly recommended.

Boat Location

Yachts and Sailing Cruisers are one of the most popular categories of boats sailed in Ireland and typically range in overall length (LOA) from about 6 metres (20ft) to well over 30 metres (98ft). Anything bigger and it's a super-yacht! Boats value in price from simple starter boats for less than €20,000 but go right up to over €1million. Regardless of what you are after, we have a huge range in our listings below:

There is a vast array of makes models and types of rigs so choosing a yacht for sale can be hard for a novice. How can you tell a Beneteau from a Jeanneau? What's the difference between a sloop and a ketch? Yachts and sailing cruisers are commonly know by their rig and sail plan types: a Bermudan sloop is of the most common but gaff and ketch rigs are one of the most popular categories of boats sailed in Ireland.

Most sailing cruisers on Irish waters are in the six to ten metre category and offer the protection of a cabin for over nighting and the Irish climate. There are different types of sailing cruisers including day sailors which are just one step up from a dinghy, weekenders which might have a twin keel and then sailing cruisers by the far the most common type of yacht in private use, making up most of the 7 metres (23ft) - 14 metres (46ft) range.

Sailing cruisers are used for many different activities from gentle harbour sailing and day cruising right up to blue water cruising and voyages across oceans. Smaller sailing cruiser examples are yachts from the Beneteau and Jeanneau ranges, Westerly, Albin Vega, Galion, Hurley, Jaguar, Etap to name just a few. From 20 foot trailer-sailers right up to Volvo Ocean Racers (VOR) they have all featured on our sailing cruisers for sale pages.

There is a very active racing scene around Irish water and each year sailing cruisers come together for national championships of all types of boats that compete together based on size and handicaps. Production boats compete with quite a lot of custom made sailing cruiser racers such as designs from the drawing boards of naval architects such as Mark Mills, John Corby, Jason Ker and Bruce Farr.
