Representing the latest generation of Dufour Yachts, the Dufour 390 has been built on the wealth of experience from renown designer Umberto Felci. She is a natural evolution from her predecessors with all the same Dufour DNA that you would hope to find.
The result is a high volume, well mannered, attractive family cruising yacht that stands out from the competition and sails exceptionally well. She also offers all the life style features that you would naturally expect on any modern yacht.
The distinct hull chines extend well forward to generate greater performance, both for up and downwind sailing. This modern hull shape also helps create the much the appreciated interior volume.
In harbour her well shaped single rudder and sail drive combine to create a yacht that is as easy to manoeuvre as one could ever hope for.
Built for comfort in harbour as well as on the water, she is fun and forgiving to sail.
There are a number of different layout options, 3 cabin with 1, 2 or 3 heads. Alternatively you can choose the 2 cabin 2 heads version.
Clear uncluttered side decks allow unhindered movement and ample space for relaxing.
The low gooseneck makes handling the mainsail when reefing and stowing the sail so much easier.
The generous drop down stern platform incorporates a bathing ladder and opens up the space for the life raft and additional storage under the cockpit floor. It also offers the perfect space for enjoying the BBQ / Plancha.
The fully enclosed cockpit will leave you feel safe and protected, as does the moulded bulwarks when you venture onto the foredeck at sea.
There is a well sized cockpit table with good storage for small items and space for the chart plotter.
Overlapping headsails, self tacking jibs, in mast furling mainsails are all options as is the choice between a shallow or deep draught.
A wide mainsheet traveller allows greater control of the mainsail shape which means you can point higher and sail more comfortably upwind in a breeze.
The two half depth cockpit lockers found in the 3 cabin version offer amble storage, naturally you will get a much large locker with the 2 cabin version.
Plenty of windows and hatches make for a light and airy interior.
The hull design with its wide forward sections creates an enormous forward cabin which features fitted shelving and hanging cupboards. There is also plenty of light flooding in through the deck hatches, forward deck window and hull windows.
The comfortable saloon has a nice cosy feel with seating all around the large saloon table.
The chart table can be lowered to extend the port saloon seat.
You will find nice features such as the drawers below the port saloon seat for easy storage access.
The L shaped aft galley comes with ample stowage and two point access into the generous fridge.
