Supreme Comfort at Sea

The Dufour 56 yacht’s thoughtful and innovative hull and deck plans are revamped to perfect balance and performance, while masterfully crafting an elevated on-deck experience with amenities and quality more often associated with larger yachts.
The expansive cockpit and wide table with refrigerator are perfect for hosting your guests in absolute outdoor comfort. The bench seats feature thick, cushioned upholstery with the back and armrests of a lounger. The rear seats and roof have been fitted with cushioned lounge areas, perfect for sunbathing. The large fold-down swim platform is easily accessed by lifting the rear seat, which also serves nicely as a protective element for the helmsman. Once moored, the rear locker lid can be raised to reveal one of Dufour’s hallmark features – an aft outdoor galley complete with sink, grill and counter space.
