The Dufour 34 Perforamance sloop has accommodations for four adults with two private sleeping cabins plus the salon settees for the crew! The single head is located aft to starboard at the companionway which is really nice when you are under way and there is even a stall shower which also makes a convenient wet locker. There is a very reasonable galley that is well equipped with everything you need.
The salon is spacious with two curved settees and a centerline dropleaf table that seats seven in the dining area. The upholstery is removeable and washable and looks great. There is storage under the settees and also behind the settee seatbacks with cabinetry and a bookshelf outboard on each side.
The L-shaped galley is very workable so you can actually cook up a meal for that hungry crew. There is enough storage and counterspace, actually Corian counters, that you will find the galley very nice to work in. It is located in the right spot near the companionway also so you can pass up the sandwiches.
With five deck hatches, four opening ports and two fixed portlights the boat is spacious and light and bright with nice ventilation.

The second cabin is aft to port on the quarter with standing headroom and a thick foam mattress with a removable washable cover. The large hanging locker has a double door and stowage shelve.
