Jullien Challenger Europe, 1978
Perfect cruising yacht and very suitable for cruiser racing. Five berth, two doubles and one single. D’aval (meaning Downstream in English) is currently lying in Hythe, Southampton.
We have owned her since 2015 and she has provided us with excellent Summer cruising around the South Coast and France. She was taken out of the water at the beginning of November and is sitting on her trailer.
