About this Boat

This swing-wing Dragonfly 1000 is a very nice example of this model and displays the manuracturer's attention to bringing a quality, performance luxury cruiser to market. The high performance fractional rig and high bouyancy amas combine to produce ultra responsive control and power, while providing exemplary stability and speed. The centerboard and kick-up rudder reduces the draft to under 2' making this a true shoal draft tri. 

42 were built between 1991 and 2002.
