The Dufour brand still exists. I think they are owned by Grand Soliel or something like that but they have their own website, a bunch of new models, etc.
Try emailing them. I know that owners manuals are still available for a lot of the older Beneteaus and Jeanneaus. Also, I believe there is a Dufours owners group on Yahoo.
The Safari was a pretty popular model even in the US.

Funny enough all the best sites I've found on this are indeed in English!

http://www.dufour.org.uk/html/boat_classes.html the UK dufour association, looks like you can request a scanned version of the owners manuel from them.

Otherwise, I recommend googling Dufour 27 sale or vendre etc. and then getting the owner's email/telephone. Call the guy and ask if he has an owner's manuel you could borrow etc. People are usually pretty good about sharing that stuff.

Good luck!
