Maximise her performance with flat top mainsails, overlapping headsail, distinctively raked mast and powerful asymmetric spinnakers. Or simply take a more gentle approach to your sailing with self tacking jibs and a more traditional mainsail, as you prefer.
The semi-rigid boom is another new innovation that is different from all current Dufour models. Designed to house the mainsail inside the boom when it is stowed and you can incorporate foldable solar panels on the boom for more environmentally friendly power supplies. Alternatively, a stack pack with lazy jacks can be fitted.
The genoa sheets lead back over the coachroof to the companionway winches. This offers the easiest position to control the sail and leaves the cockpit free. The mainsheet can be taken to either the cokpit floor or coachroof.
Tiller steering offers more a direct feel when sailing and when alongside you will appreciate the extra room and openness offered in the cockpit.
Unlike many tiller steered yachts however the autopilot drive connects directly to the rudder stock.
The transom is fitted with a removable, inflatable aft door. As well as being far lighter than the GRP equivalent, when at anchor this can be lowered down to open up the cockpit space as well as act as the bathing platform.
The cockpit table has been given additional purpose and has three alternative positions. Raise it up for alfresco dining, lower it down level with the cockpit seating to create a large sunbathing area, or remove it completely if you need the space whilst sailing.
A simple, lightweight fabric sun shade can be fitted below the boom and stowed when not in use to avoid the usual cumbersome frames.
To save space the cockpit cushions as well as the transom platform are inflatable for easy stowage when not in use.
Deep teak toe rails give a good footing when moving around the deck which are clear an uncluttered.
