Overlooking the Bay of Biscay is home to one of the biggest shipbuilders in the world – Dufour. Dufour is unrivaled in its quality of yacht building, from hand lamination to their meticulous yacht assembly. Italian designed, but 100% French made, Dufour has the style and sophistication you would expect by these two style orientated countries. Dufour works closely with Umberto Felci, world-class naval architects, who together have created yachts that deliver elegance, performance, and comfort – a truly luxurious yacht.
Due to Dufour`s comfortable sail, and easy maneuverability, Dufour’s are very popular in the Mediterranean especially in Greece and Italy. Dufour`s are no stranger to winning awards and regattas. Amongst the many awards and nominations, the Dufour Grand Large 520 was awarded the 2018 Boat of the year by Cruising World. Besides the obvious beauty, the Dufour`s distinctive design sets them apart from other yacht designers.
A Dufour yacht is characterized by a well-balanced hull ensuring she`s stable even under sail. Dufour has reduced its wettage surface (area below the water line) to increase her performance but not compromising on her comfortable sail. It`s small design ideas like this that attracts sailing enthusiasts from all over the world to charter a Dufour.
