Dufour Monohulls

The ultimate sailing pleasure

The ultimate sailing pleasure

Charter management

Dufour Yachts has been based in La Rochelle, France since 1964. Our shipyard produces about 350 monohull cruising sailboats annually and today offers 10 different models from 31 to 56 feet that are distributed in more than 30 countries around the world. Dufour yachts are well recognized for exceptional sailing qualities, contemporary styling, abundant on board comfort amenities, and robust construction.

Hull design

We combine scientific analysis and creative problem-solving to deliver outstanding sailing performance that defines the essence of Dufour Yachts. Maintaining the designed hull shape under load to withstand extreme conditions is a function of the hull rigidity.


Dufour’s self aligning system allows the stock to pass through a spherical plastic knuckle which is housed in a machines 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 are designed to combine maximum comfort and pure navigation pleasure. Spacious and ergonomic cockpits, easy circulation around side decks and clean deck plans.


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.
