ALIENOR is a Dufour 525 Grand Large, which has been more than breathed upon by the upgrade army. Full refit from build and a bluewater spec that has never been used in anger.
The vendor is a very experienced yachtsman and raced extensively all over the world in the past, and purchased this yacht for bluewater missions. The Dufour 525 was selected after an extensive search, involving looking over many similar yachts and head scratching over many yacht reports, excel spreadsheets and coffee. The price point, build and huge volume without sacrificing performance put her heads above similar yachts of her ilk.
Her unique attributes are:
Huge living space and volume carried aft.
Excellent sailing qualities giving less reliance on the engine.
Watermaker with only 10 hours logged.
Fully service history on engine and generator by Volvo Agents.
Upgraded rig and rigging.
Keel off and keel bolts and plate reinforced from the standard build.
Bow bulkhead reinforced and strengthened from the build.
ALIENOR has been specified and looked after from the build by an experienced professional. She has been lightly used, as bluewater plans were not realised. She is for sale as the owner would prefer shallower draft and a smaller yacht.
