One of the worlds premier production yacht builders, like many coming from France is Dufour. The 45e was the flagship of the company when released and they produced a fine family boat with plenty of performance and excellent sailing qualities. It is always difficult for a builder and designer to cooperate in the creation a good-looking boat that sails well and is economical to produce, but Dufour and Felci have managed to do just that. The hull is hand laid vacuum-bagged fiberglass with a PVC core above the waterline and solid laminate below, with an NPG blister-resistant gelcoat. An interior structural frame reinforces the hull. The deck is injection molded with a PVC core.

As with the rest of the 2009 Dufour line, designer Umberto Felci gave the 45e's hull a distinctly Italian look, and Patrick Roséo designed the accommodations. The low cabintop, sleek lines and clean deck layout all add up to a very attractive vessel. Despite the "Performance" tag the draft is modest for a 45 footer at 2.30 metres. The rig has a clean October 2018 inspection report. The cockpit layout is family friendly whilst also offering the racer plenty of go-fast gear including an unobtrusive traveller well down on the floor plus 4 x electric winches. "Slightly Unstable" is also well geared up for coastal or offshore cruising with autopilot, good bimini & dodger, solar panels and wind generator plus watermaker.
Spacious and comfortable below she has three double cabins including a master forward cabin with ensuite. The saloon is full width sporting a cleverly designed folding table. A well appointed galley is located to port and includes ample storage and bench space and plenty of refrigeration.

The sail wardrobe includes a new mainsail (2017), Furling headsail, No. 3 Headsail and 2 x Spinnakers. Overall this is a great package for the yachty family looking for a fast cruiser. Located in Manly Boat Harbour Brisbane and for sale exclusively through us, call Geoff on 0438 455 301 to book your appointment to inspect.

NB: February 2019 Survey Report available to view on inspection of the vessel.

Due to a work transfer offshore the vendor has sacrificed the price down from $235,000 to $219,000 Negotiable so be quick as it wont last long at this price!
