Dufour 405 & 425

Post by Marco Marine » Thu Jun 04, 2009 11:27 am

Dear Forum,

The Dufour 405 is a new tried and tested model out since Paris Boat show last year. The Dufour 425 has been out fr now 2 years. The new 405 has many modern storage solutions and offeres space below similar to the existing 425. Ultimately you need to view both models back to back and make the decision yourself. Please feel free to PM us for any further information if you wish.

This blog deserves to be read - unfortunately it's in French - It's about the problems an owner had with his 425GL : mainly a keel which was not well fitted to the boat.

Be careful with the problem blog...

The blog posted and built should be read keeping in mind this is a "revenge blog" for someone who made a bad purchase and certainly made bad relations with Dufour. My own positive posts about the 425 were deleted, as well as Dufour's own comments.

It as very unlikelybthat the 425 should be that poor, and all other models excellent!
