Manufacturer Provided Description
The target set for naval architect Umberto Felci and the Dufour Yachts Design Office was to come up with something even better than the Dufour 40. What a challenge! And they more than came up with the goods! Its many qualities speak for themselves: finesse, precision, exciting sailing. Take a look at: cruising/racing deck layout, suitable for sailing with a full or reduced crew, out on the open ocean or around the buoys; below decks, the refinement and quality of Dufour Yachts’ interiors. All adding up to a fast boat for racing or just for the pleasure of a leisurely cruise.
