Dufour Yachts are known for their exceptional sailing qualities and sturdy construction, their contemporary styling, and an abundance of onboard comfort amenities.

Hull Shape

Optimizing the performance of hull shape wrapped around a voluminous cruising interior is a fine art. Dufour sailboats combine creative problem-solving and scientific analysis to deliver outstanding sailing performance.

Hull stiffness

Maintaining the designed hull shape under load to withstand extreme conditions is a function of the hull rigidity.

Rudders

Dufour’s performance yachts includes a self-aligning system that allows the stock to pass through a spherical plastic knuckle, which is housed in a machined aluminum body. As the rudder stock bends under load, the knuckles rotate within the body. The stock rotates evenly inside the bearing surface, reducing friction for smooth and easy steering.

Decks

Decks are designed to combine maximum comfort and pure navigation pleasure. Spacious and ergonomic cockpits, easy circulation around side decks and clean deck plans.

Interiors

Because a yacht is also a living space, we propose you various layouts adapted to your needs in order to guarantee a unique comfort in all conditions.

  • Skipper cabin on some models
  • Light flow optimization
  • Maximum ventilation
  • Fully equipped galleys
  • Modern and luxurious heads
  • Modular saloons
  • Numerous storage cupboards
  • Equipment – television, washing machine, wine cellar…

As you can see, a Dufour yacht is more than just a yacht. It’s an opportunity to sail away and leave the world behind.

Why choose a Dufour monohull yacht?

Leading designs. Exceptional Quality.

The unmistakable shape, elegance and performance of a Dufour yacht comes from a combination of exceptional design (at the hands of Umberto Felci – a leading naval architect), well-balanced hull shapes, strong aft sections and reduced wetted surface areas and appendages for cruising.

From conception, to design and production, around 400 models a year are produced at Dufour’s headquarters, using only the highest quality materials.
