“Grand Cruiser” version, (top of the Dufour Classic range), with deep,100 percent lead keel.

 

Alexa” was shown, and purchased, at the Earls Court Boat Show, UK, in 1997.  She was virtually un-used in her first three years of ownership, based in Weymouth Marina.  In her second and current ownership she was briefly cruised out of Chichester, then was substantially improved and fitted out for the 2003 ARC.  Since she completed the ARC she has been kept in Trinidad and Grenada, and used for six week annual vacations in the Grenadines, (so overall usage as been relatively low).  She has been cared for by Island Dreams Yacht Management, is laid up in a cradle in Grenada Marine in the hurricane season, and was based at Le Phare Bleu Marina when in commission.  She is currently completely set up for tropical sailing, and blue water voyaging.

She is now lying in St Martin for your viewing pleasure. 300 flights a month from 90 cities in the continental US and 40 flights a month from Europe make duty free St Marten the preferred purchase destination in the Caribbean.!

 

 

“Alexa” was significantly upgraded and improved prior to her Atlantic crossing and those improvements and differences to the stock Dufour Classic 41 are listed in the full specs.

Owners comments:

 The Dufour 41 Classic was manufactured at a time just before the main French yacht production builders focused on economies of production, and the quality shows, with solid mahogany cappings and double skinned doors.  For those not familiar with the class, it’s important to stress that the Dufour is a relatively light and very fast 41 footer, with high aspect ratio keel and rudder.  As a contemporary Yachting World test said, “She spins on a sixpence and accelerates out of tacks”.   This particular model has the deep, full lead keel which makes an enormous difference to her pointing ability and stability in a sloppy sea. She is stiff and sea kindly.

 

 

“Alexa” is very much a cruising boat and has only been raced twice.  In 2005 she came 2nd overall in the non-spinnaker cruising class in Tobago Sail Regatta, with two wins and two seconds.  In 2011 she entered in the South Grenada Regatta, (non-spinnaker cruiser class),  and won every race - outstripping a Swan 47 and a Beneteau 50. All owners say their boats are fast and beautiful to sail - those results speak for themselves!

 ON out mooring awaiting your viewing pleasure.
