This is a LOT of boat for the price!

Great Charter Boat Option!

Ready for Spring Sailing.

Designed by Philip Briand, the Dufour Atoll 6 is a 'monomaran'. It has all the features that people like in a catamaran, put into a monohull. An integrated cockpit and salon, all on one level, with surround open space down the middle of the boat, for easy movement. Step down into the 5 Cabins and 4 heads which are arranged in a mirror image throughout the boat.

There is a huge amount of storage - under the central cabin sole (engine, tankage etc), under seats, beneath the helm floor and under counters.

The rig is fractional with swept-back spreaders, fully battened, classic mainsail and furling genoa. It has a 5'11 draft a spade rudder, so it sails well and can be taken into anchorages where you would not expect to take a boat of this size.

The current owner of this Atoll 6 bought 'Buloo' in 2009 and since then has either replaced or rebuilt anything that needs it. He has cruised the boat up and down the East Coast of the US for approximately 4 months each year and has stored it on the hard for the winter.

Sails are removed and stored each winter, bottom is sanded and painted (with top end Woolsey paint - high copper content) each Spring.

All upgrades have been done to the highest standards. Buloo has the following equipment and upgrades:

and a lot more

If you are looking for something spacious and different, make time to see Buloo.
