The 430 is the perfect family cruiser designed with performance in mind yet very easy to sail. Thanks to her wide bow and distinct hull chines she offers an incredible deck and cockpit space, perfect for entertaining. Down below the forward galley and offset dinette create a cozy, open feel in the light bright saloon.
She is offered in 2 versions; 3 cabin – 2 heads with central galley forward or 3 cabin – 2 heads with an extra pullman cabin and a linear side galley.
You can set up the sail plan to suit your requirements. Self tacking jibs come as standard but you can choose to have 108% over lapping headsails and in mast furling if you wish.
The efficient designs of the single rudder and bulb keel add to both her performance as well as the ease in which she is handled. With her broad beam and distinct hull chines she will be happiest and fastest sailing upright. To get the best out of her, reef early and sail her flat.
After a days sailing relax and enjoy the out door space with integrated galley and gas BBQ/Plancha.
As you step onboard from the transom you will appreciate the amount of cockpit space that is offered. The integrated Gas BBQ/Plancha sits hidden under the rear cockpit seats and with the bathing platform lowered this extends the useful space even further creating the perfect spot for cooking and preparing dinner.
Her foredeck and wide side decks are easy to navigate and remain free of lines and halyards which are all hidden under the cabin roof and led back to the winches in the cockpit.
At each wheel there are pods which house some of the instrumentation and a dedicated space for the GPS Plotter within the large cockpit table which also offers good storage .
There is a wide main sheet traveller mounted on the coachroof allowing full adjustment of the mainsail.
As is common to all Dufour Yachts, the low goose neck position allows for easy handling of the mainsail when reefing and stowing the sail.
Down below the split galley is found at the forward end of the saloon with cooker and sink to port, fridge and more storage to starboard. Perfect for couples that like to cooker together.
There is ample seating around the saloon table, the chart table can lower when not in use to extend the seating even further and there is a two seater love seat to port.
Your guests will certainly not complain with the amount of space offered in the aft cabins and the generous master cabin forward with ensuite offers a central double bed with access from both sides.
There are plenty of reachable hand holds around the saloon when moving around at sea.
Ample storage can be found in the deep mid level cupboards around the galley and the saloon. This is complimented further by additional storage under the saloon seating and under certain floorboards in the bilges.
