1972 Dufour Arpege bulbed iron fin keel

5 October, 2011 by EVAN

About this Sailboat:

The Arpege was one of the first production cruiser-racers to really go for wide beam to gain interior volume, and one of the reasons it quickly became so popular was that this did not hurt its sailing performance – in fact for several years Arpeges were very competitive racers. Now they make excellent low-budget fast cruisers.
No huge aft cabin (nor fore-cabin either, for that matter) on this boat,but she does have six secure sea berths.Two are in the quarters and there are four more in the saloon:one on each long straight settee, and a pilot berth on each side,snugly above and outboard the settees.She boasts a good-sized chart table and hinging up to allow access to plentiful storage. On deck she has a deep, secure cockpit.Side-decks are comfortingly wide.To top all, her lines are beautiful,with generous overhangs and fine entry and exit lines.

The boat is in port olimpic Barcelona Spain with the possibility to take over the mooring for 250€/month,she is in the water ready to sail out on a long cruise,the engine is the original wel maintained volvo penta MD2 14 HP 2 cylinder diesel with a 1.5 liter/hour cruising speed of 10 knots (20km/h) fuel efficiency,it just had an extensive checkup with new oil & impellor and runs fine .
I am the second owner ,the biggest sails are now installed that usually gives her a cruising speed of 18 knots that are in good condition and there are 5 smaller sails in the bow,where one size smaller foresail has a rip(easy repair)and the smaller mainsail just looks dirty but works fine,the 3 other sails spinaker look like new and I think are never used,
the boat is in good condition with 2 anchors and everything you need to go cruising,it also includes a high range wifi antenna,GPS with worldcharts,raymarine ST2000 autohelm autopilot,new handheld radio and in and outboard stereo,tools & spare parts,220V fridge&freezer including all the original manuals and documentation
