Broker Remarks

Dufour set out to challenge, and then to dazzle the market by building a yacht to re-enter the North American yachting market. They came out with a boat that was better than the Dufour 40, and that was a tough call. The Dufour team and design group led by Umberto Felci did not disappoint the yachting community.
Above Decks The T-shaped cockpit is very well-proportioned. She has twin steering stations with 36” inch wheels that grace the aft part with a beautiful and comfortable mainsheet traveller adjustment forward of the wheels. The helmsman’s angled seat allows for smooth steering and sail trim using the Harken 46 outboard winches.
The single standing backstay adjustment is also close at hand. Dufour has thought of everything with this set up including a very nice foot brace that can be removed allowing access to the table sockets. The seating forward of the steering station is more significant than one would expect and covers a functionally substantial storage locker underneath. To starboard of the helm are the engine controls for the Volvo 40 hp. They are positioned correctly out of the way.
To port, there is a propane gas locker and jib control furler. Aft of the yacht the fold-down swim platform is a nice touch. The platform has a built-in telescoping ladder that is easily hidden away.
Upon the coach roof are two Harken 40 winches. The controls lines include factory standard spinnaker controls and stoppers. Around the hatch opening, there's an inlay for an optional dodger. Moving forward on deck is easy with the great 19” wide side decks. The aluminium anodised, performance profiled mast with double swept back spreaders passes through the dick and is stepped on the keel. Discontinuous standing rigging is a single strand, stainless-steel cable. The anchor locker is deep and has a remote windlass control.

This is the version with three cabins with two full bathrooms. Bow cabin with double bed, storage cupboards and support sofas, large lounge with central table and sofa in "U" to starboard. She has a complete galley with stove, oven, double stainless steel sink, refrigerator, microwave, and various cabinets. Hot and cold water throughout the boat.
First impressions one gets when arriving in the salon from up on deck is one of warmth brought about in part by the horizontal grained woodwork. Of course, the exquisite woodwork and finish are what one expects from on Dufour Yacht. The detail of the white-coloured side panels is excellent.
The starboard settee is large and wide (5’X 20”) it folds neatly for storage. To port, the elegant settee is very large measuring 6’4” in length, suitable size cabinets are above the couch. Natural light is brought in to the saloon by an additional pair of hull ports giving one even more feeling of light and space. The designers have also added a smart fold-down seat, and this is in front of the galley. The dinette table is a well proportioned for the size of yacht. The table has a typically French hardwood fiddle trim and crumb hole making clean ups very quickly. The table’s removable legs make a berth conversion simple.
The L-shaped galley has Corian countertops where you will find plenty of room and surface area for food preparation. An excellent glass divider/splash guard is again typically french detail, it that helps to define the relative spaces in the saloon. The galley space allows for a two-burner, gimballed stove as well as both a double and front opening icebox. Natural light streams in via the two opening deck ports.
The aft head is a moulded fibreglass compartment, and its black countertop is quite striking. Storage both behind the mirror and under the sink is perfectly adequate. To port, the side aft cabin has 6’5” standing head and sitting space headroom at the head of the berth. The berth is a generous 6’8” long and fits well to it's sculpted shape (4’2” at the head, 2’6” at the base). The starboard side aft cabin is even more significant and boasts a berth one foot longer and a bit than found to port, a long shelf graces the hull wall. Ventilation comes through the cockpit port. The same storage and lighting attributes are here too. Access to the engine bay is straightforward on both sides.
The forward v berth cabin is bright and wide. Shelves complement the larger berth on each hull wall. Fixed hull ports and the more significant screened hatch above provide the natural light. The small opening hatch and the larger one provide excellent ventilation.
