Volvo Penta 75 D2 with turbocharger and 150S sail drive gearbox working a four x eight inch blade Volvo folding propeller with an Ambassador rope cutter.

Current engine hours 1595 and the engine and gearbox have just had a professional service/overhaul as of 12th Feb 2017.
Access to the engine is good; lifting the hydraulic assisted companionway ladder exposes the front and top while hatches in both quarter cabins cover the sides and rear where there is a large lit space giving access to the back of the engine, the sail drive gearbox, fuel filters and the battery charger.

This imposing Dufour Grand Large is well known locally and much admired in the marina. She is a boat that has a lot in her favour. One owner from new, who is experienced, careful and competent and has cruised her regularly, ensuring that she has had full professional annual maintenance and system upgrades where required.
She is simply a stunning example of one of the finest 48 footers on the market; easy on the eye, fast, sea-kindly and very comfortable below decks.
Anna Too is easily manoeuvred and sailed short handed as the owner has been diligent in the set-up of the rig and systems with mostly powered winches, control lines led aft, in-mast reefing, boom brake and bow thruster to name but a few. Having recently sailed her I can confirm the ease of handling, she is a delight to helm and control.
