1978 Custom Aluminium & Techniques Zoufri 9.00



Competitively priced and fully equipped example of these versatile and fast family cruisers. This Zoufri 9.00, designed by Sylvestre Langevin, was built by Aluminium & Techniques, Isigni-sur-Mer, France in 1978 and benefits from a programme of ongoing upgrades, the most significant being new Selden spars and rigging in 2009. Its ability, with a swing keel and lifting rudder, to operate in shallow waters makes it a particularly attractive choice for those wishing to explore coastal waters, estuaries and inland waterways.
