Dufour 375 Marine Survey at Port Solent. These Dufour built yachts are well finished and sail well, with good accommodation.
Dufour are generally well built craft from France, with modern Iso resins and a single (monolithic) hull take everyday knocks and bumps as well as most. This one boasted a lowering bow thruster, offering in some ways the best of both worlds – easy manoeuvring in port and no extra resistance when sailing!
Interestingly these craft do seem to attract blistering to the rudder sometimes though, the cause of which is difficult to determine. Possible causes might be contaminatiuon of the mould at the build stage, or contamination of the matt or resin used within the rudder build, or the humidity being too high, the list of possible causes can be endless
