Performance Cruising is what this boat is all about!  Get there in comfort and have great sail along the way.

This boat is better than new.  She has been taken care of and it shows very well.  Before you buy somehting else you need to check out this boat!   Dufour 405 Liberty version 2012 with 2 cabins, 2 heads and garage storage in aft stb cabin. 

You need but one quick glance at the lines of the 405 to appreciate the decidedly Euro flair to the topsides profile and layout. In contemporary yacht design, long gone are the days of angled overhangs and sweeping sheer lines. On the 405 (which actually measures in at a shade under 40 feet), with its nearly plumb stem and subtle reverse-transom stern, the idea is to maximize waterline length and interior volume in as attractive a platform

Four Kids For Sail is a very nicely kept boat.  Used exclusively for day sailing.  She also has a few cruising class races under her belt.  Note the new Doyle Carbon sails.

If your looking for comfort, style and performance; you need to take a closer look at this Dufour 405.
