Alegria

part of the cooper fleet

DUFOUR 45e

Alegria is Spanish for “Happiness” and you would be hard pressed to find a boat around here to charter that’s more fun to sail. She’s been the backbone of our top level training programs. The boat has been one of our community favourites for race events. If you are looking for lots of canvas to stay out of the elements, you’re better off in a more Winnebago model. If you are a real sailor, your dream can come true.
