Despite The Weather Lots of Visitors For The Dufour Yachts Open Weekend in Hamble!


Well considering all this horrendous weather the Dufour Yachts open weekend was a huge success! There were lots of visitors and huge interest.
With almost all of the yachts in the range available to view we have had great feedback from customers who would potentially like to join the Dufour family and own a new yacht ready for the spring 2014!

Unfortunately the Dufour 310 Grand Large was not on show during the Dufour Yachts Open Weekend this time around, but Network Yacht Brokers Plymouth are looking forward to unveiling this new model here in Plymouth in May. So watch this space for more updates nearer the time when we will be opening the doors for customers to come and view the newest model available.

DUFOUR 560 Grand Large

Dufour Yachts proudly celebrates its 50th anniversary unveiling its upcoming product development plan and announcing the launch of the biggest Grand Large model ever, the Dufour 560 GL.

This model will join the expanding Grand Large range: 310, 335, 380,410, 450 and 500.

The Grand Large 560 has been designed to satisfy customers seeking the perfect balance of perfomance, style, luxury and comfort. Respecting  the essence of Dufour’s DNA, this product line extension inherits the remarkable seaworthiness that has made the brand successful internationally.

The collaboration between Dufour Yachts and the talented design of Felci Yachts has been renewed, the Grand Large 560 will be the 23rd consecutive project developed together.

The result of this collaboration is a very balanced hull shape, with powerful aft sections, low wetted surface area and a very effective set of appendages (keel & rudder). The high ballast ratio and increased form stability of the hull enables the boat to support a powerful sailplan without sacrificing cruising comfort and safety.

The sail plan has been designed to guarantee maximum performance with minimum effort. The fixed bowsprit, the self tacking jib and the boom inclined forward are all examples of a sail plan that is derived from solo sailor open 60, where ease of handling in race mode are mandatory.

The DUFOUR 560 GL flagship sets the highest standards when it comes to aesthetic appeal. The yacht exudes modern elegance, luxury and dynamism with its sweeping lines and uniquely DUFOUR top fixed hatch, with angled corners and horizontal sleek side windows, the GL 560 delivers a striking visual statement.

The deck spaces are well divided between working and relaxation areas. Wide side decks and the integrated bulwark guarantees unobstructed passageways for maximum safety during navigation. An easy accessible tender garage is well integrated in the aft working area to fit a 3,10mt tender as well as having a large and comfortable access to the water.

The German mainsheet system and self tacking jib enable easy and precise handling even with a small crew. The working area is designed to be clear from sunbathing areas as well as cooking, relaxing and dining spaces for the comfort and safety of  all guests.

Below deck, the spacious GL 560 features meticulous craftsmanship and modern, yet functional design elements.

The interior has been designed around customer needs with a series of meetings in the yard between Dufour owners, dealers and the internal design team.

The result is a yacht with a unique interior layout, with a special focus on the saloon area.

Each owner can enjoy choosing his boat with different woods and fabrics as well as the possibility of having 4 different layouts for the owner’s cabin.

The Dufour 560 can be fitted with 3, 4 and even 5 cabins plus a skipper cabin, leaving maximum freedom for the customer to tailor the boat for his specific preferences.

“A sailboat to satisfy the most demanding sailors without compromising the comfort and quality inside”, says Gianguido Girotti Product and Marketing manager at Dufour.

“it is a fantastic project in which everyone has contributed to improve what has made Dufour successful over the past 50 years around the world. We are extremely excited and look forward to sail the boat”

The new DUFOUR Grand Large 560 will make its official debut next spring.
