Remarks :Presenting 'Scharjade', a 1999 Dufour 38 Classic. A good all-around cruising yacht that is unobtrusive but surprisingly fast, easily controlled by a small crew. 'Scharjade' has been in the same ownership since new. Streamlined deckhouse and reverse transom that allows for swimming and boarding. A comfortable large seagoing cockpit with contoured seats and wide sidedecks. All halyards and sail controls are led aft to the cockpit, and there are self-tailing Lewmars either side of the companionway. 3 Cabin version with two heads compartments. Lying Conwy Marina, North Wales

Accommodation :Stepping aboard the Dufour 38 Classic, the light Khaya mahogany panelling shines under natural light. The roof is topped with a nicely moulded white headliner, with a blue upholstery. The teak-and-holly flooring leads forward to a forepeak cabin that's big enough to sleep two at anchor. It has mahogany lining, storage in side-pockets and under the bunk (where one of two water tanks is located), twin lockers with hanging space and drawers, plus a double berth that measures 2m x 1.6m with high-density foam mattress. A good size en-suite heads compartment forward with Corian benchtops, a hot/cold shower, manual head, plenty of storage for personals, and a mirror come standard. Aft of the mahogany bulkhead, separating the forward cabin, is a saloon with headroom of around 1.85m. It's designed for spending long nights eating, drinking and being merry, as the main feature is a huge dinette with U-shaped lounge, and separate double seat, that can seat eight people or convert to accommodate two at night. The settee cushions are contoured for a comfortable fit, there's bottle storage built into the base of the table, while the galley remains just a long arm's length away. The back of the separate bench seat fronting the dinette can be used as a brace if you're cooking in seaway. Among the smart features of the galley are twin stainless sinks, chrome-plated taps, a two-burner gas stove/oven, a wonderful 150lt deep fridge, and abundant storage for crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils. Amidships on the port side is the day head with a stylish sink set in Corian, good access to the plumbing, a Jabsco sea toilet, and separate sit-down shower space with teak seat and chrome fittings. The navigation station on the starboard-side is a good size, with enough space to rest a folded chart, a comfortable pedestal seat, facia for mounting navigation equipment, control panel with perfectly logical wiring, and a hanging locker. Back aft are the two cabins, which double as sea berths depending on your tack. Each has a double berth measuring 1.9m x 1.4m, hanging locker with shelf, an open shelf alongside the bunks, and a hatch for fresh air. The inner panels of the aft two cabins and the companionway steps lift to grant access to all sides of the Volvo engine.

Mechanical :Construction:Dufour 38 Classic, built in 1998 by Dufour Yachts, France to a design by Yann Chabaud & Olivier Poncin. Delivered and first commissioned January 1999HIN: FR-DUF C1046K899Cat 'A' OceanAnodes + Anti-foul (July 2019)Topsides cleaned GRP hull, deck and superstructure - Dufour hulls are formed using hand-laid rovings and NPG resin and gelcoat to protect against osmosis. The hull itself is GRP around a foam core, bonded using the modern technique of vacuum-bagging. Glass-encapsulated ply floors are laminated to the hull, the deck is balsa-cored sandwich, while the semi-elliptical spade rudder is filled with closed-cell foam and mounted on self-aligning bearings. This good and reliable engineering is a well known Dufour trait.
