Re: Dufour 385 for sale - Navigo

S/Y Navigo now has new owners. A very nice Danish family with kids. Not easy to part with a great boat, but a first step towards new adventures.

Sorry Chara!

Just realized I misread your post. I was talking about the two bumpers the bathing platform rest on when folded down. My bad.
