Yachting Brokers are pleased to offer for sale a Dufour 385 (3 cabin), that has been personally inspected and photographed by ourselves.
The Dufour 385 is a very comfortable cruising yacht and the 3 cabin, two heads layout makes this perfect for a larger family or enjoy cruising with friends. She received excellent reviews and Sail Magazine commented, “Under sail in 10 to 12 knots of wind, I found the 385 to be quick and responsive. The helm was smooth, and each of the dual helm stations had a comfortable seat on the coaming. The hull was easily driven and had a wide sweet spot. Upwind, boatspeed stayed right around 5 knots”
Our cooperative agreement with our French brokers provides UK buyers direct access to an English-speaking broker so you do not have to worry about language and obtaining documentation in English. Yachting Brokers work to ensure a smooth purchase process and we offer a range of additional services including contact details of overseas surveyors, assistance with transport and help with foreign exchange transfers with Currencies Direct. Purchase paperwork is in dual language and checked to ensure compliance and VAT status (where applicable). We also manage de-registration from the French registry.
Please note that our brokerage boats are based in their home port or marina across the South coast and Northern France so before travelling it is important to have made viewing arrangements with ourselves to avoid disappointment.
