SV "Alceste" is in excellent condition for her age, stored on the dry and ready to go offshore.

The Dufour 35, produced from 1972 to 1982 in La Rochelle, France, is a wonderful blend of classic features and innovation, another feather in the cap of the iconic French designer Michel Dufour.

At 6 tons, the Dufour 35 won’t bounce like a cork in an ocean swell, yet the boat remains quick on its feet. The skeg-hung rudder and encapsulated cast-iron keel lend a feeling of security against a brush with an unidentified floating object. And with its extra-long fin keel, the 35 is maneuverable, tracks well, and can easily be balanced or hove to under sail.

The deep cockpit keeps the crew dry on all but the stiffest beats; for us, it also provides a secure perimeter for children. Roomy port and stern lockers accommodate sails and gear.

Below, the Dufour 35 can challenge even the beamiest modern yachts in terms of living space. In addition to a saloon and forepeak cabin, it has a quarter berth on the starboard side aft, behind a spacious navigation table. Headroom is 6 feet throughout. There is a single berths on one sides of the saloon, and a convertible table/settee area sleeps two more on the opposite side. Altogether, the 35 offers sleeping for  6.

To port is an L-shaped galley with a gimbaled two-burner stove/oven and a fridge. Five large ports provide light, while overhead hatches allow for good ventilation on tropical nights. Handholds are plentiful throughout the interior, and the boat has a wet locker that lies to port of the companionway.

Excellent storage space is accessible under the settees and in the bilge. The 34-gallon stainless-steel water tank is to port, and a second can be fitted under the starboard settee. The 34-gallon diesel tank is tucked in beneath the quarter berth.

The deck is balsa-cored. The hull, on the other hand, is solid, finger-thick fiberglass. Osmosis wasn’t a problem with our boat. Bulkheads aren’t tabbed to the hull but attached directly to the inner liner, making the liner an integral part of the hull’s structure.

The Dufour 35 is a liveaboard cruiser that can take sailors to the places of their dreams.
