Dufour 40E

Overview of Dufour 40E

The Dufour 40E’s slim, light, and sleek profile and large sailplan clearly announce its intent at as performance sailboat. But below deck, she is fully fitted as a comfortable and functional cruiser.

The Dufour 40E displays its performance pedigree on deck with a long, wide cockpit that serves well both cruisers and racers. While perhaps more functional than luxurious when compared to Dufour’s Grand Large boats, a generous galley, reasonable headroom, plenty of stowage, ample light, and comfortable berths offer all the creature comforts required for a family vacation.

No matter your goals of exhilarating sailing or relaxing cruising, the Dufour 40E is designed to please.
