1996 Dufour Nautitech 435

North Carolina, United States
$159,000 USD

This Nauitech 435 is highlighted by extensive upgrades and diligent maintenance by the current owners, who recently sailed back from Martinique after their Caribbean cruising adventures. Built By Defour / Nautiech and designed by Mortain & Mavrikios, the 435 achieves a workable blend of hull configuration, buoyancy, wetted surface and speed, while delivering a healthy measure of creature comforts. Known and awarded for the sleek hull design, the 435 shows exceptional performance close to the wind - a true performance cruiser. This vessel has a 4 cabin,4 head layout, open salon and galley with 6’-4” of headroom throughout. What a pleasure to go from cockpit to salon on the same level. ALIZE delivers pedigree, size, speed, comfort… all coupled with fine condition and aggressive pricing.
