Dufour 39CC

This was one of the smaller

Dufour & Sparkes models,

launched in 1990. Designed by

German Frers, she is a good-

looking, fast cruising design

with an elegant, well-balanced

profi le. She retains the Dufour

trademark double skin, but

the decor is all teak with a

high-gloss fi nish. She was sold

with a very good standard

inventory and the build quality

was high. She handles well

and has a good turn of

speed on all points of sail.

On the other hand, the

interior is a little cramped

and headroom is low.
