2013 Dufour 405 GL | Just Kiddin
As Australian agents for Dufour Yachts, the Yacht Sales Co is proud to exclusively present to the market Just Kiddin, a superb 2013 Dufour 405 Grand Large.
Set up with cruising in mind, this one-owner yacht was purchased with all the options, including plush washable leatherette cushions on the large U-shaped lounge and the settee/nav station opposite, upsized 55hp Volvo diesel (less than 1000hrs), bow thruster and electric halyard winch.
Comfortable mattresses in the sizeable V berth and aft double enhance the comfort onboard. The dining table conveniently converts to create another double bed and the settee/ nav table drops to create a single to accommodate extra guests. There is also an abundance of storage under benches and in cupboards around the saloon.
The well-appointed galley to starboard with huge top and front accessing fridge/freezer includes plenty of storage space with the all-important wine rack incorporated under the floor.
The access door to starboard aft reveals the storage room/ work room – with an extra 12 vlt freezer, Paguro 4.5kva genset and shelving for sails/ sheets and spares. These are also all accessible from the cockpit as well.
One of the many standout features of this boat is the ‘best-in-class’ sized cockpit. This area is ideal for entertaining with its extendable table while being snug and secure underway with a large dodger and bimini.
Just Kiddin is a dream to sail with all lines reaching back to the cockpit for excellent short-handed management. The drop-down transom allows for easy and safe dockside boarding, and her twin-wheel wheel steering provides a great view around the boat. The yacht also includes a Raymarine nav package with E90 Chart plotter and ST70 data displays.
Renowned for her excellent heavy-weather sailing capability, the Dufour 405 is equally nimble in light breezes and tight windward performance.
All this wrapped up in an Australian-ships registered, roomy, stylish and durable cruising package.
