Buloo

2001 • 50' (15.24 m) • Cruising Sailboat
United States

$165,000 USD

This Philip Briand design, the Dufour Atoll 6 is a 'monomaran'. It has all the features that people like in a catamaran, in a monohull. An integrated cockpit and salon, all on one level, with open space down the middle of the boat, for easy movement. Vertical windows forward give excellent visibility and light. Step down into the 5 Cabins and 4 heads which are arranged in a mirror image.

The storage is phenomenal - under the central cabin sole (engine, tankage etc), under seats, beneath the helm floor and under counters. Each cabin has a large clothes storage locker and double berth. The two aft cabins have en-suite heads.

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. 2020 has been the exception to that pattern!

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:

  • Champion 2000W PureSine Generator (2014)
  • Frigidaire 5000BTU Portable Aircon unit (2014)
  • Engine rebuilt 2013 (see Engine description)
  • Viking 6 pax Life Raft
  • Rolly Tasker Mainsail & Genoa (2008) used for 4 months p/a and stored
