The proportionately smaller coach roof which ends at the mast base has been designed to allow for a larger foredeck enhancing both style and comfort. This new design enables a massive amount of natural light to enter below decks through the single moulded plexiglass roof and many opening ports and windows.
The side decks are wide allowing easy movement around the deck and the numerous handholds and raised bulwark offers greater security when moving around the deck at sea. Integrated in the bulwarks are smart courtesy lights to light up the deck. Forward, there’s a large, deep sail locker, with access to the anchor chain locker.
The cockpit has been carefully designed to separate the functional elements of sailing with other areas offered for relaxation.
All the hidden control lines run under the decks and are led aft to each helm area where four electric winches give the helmsman fingertip control of all the required lines. Guests can be left to enjoy the spacious cockpit and its wide, drop-leaf centerline table with a fridge underneath.
Movement around the cockpit and on to the side decks is simple and unhindered. The large moulded steps are integrated into the coaming for safe and easy access up to the side decks.
The innovative split bimini allows easy circulation without ducking or restricted head room..
The black carbon fibre arch clears the cockpit and entrance below as well as allowing the mainsheet control to be at the end of the boom for less pressure and easier control.
The cockpit is fully enclosed on both sides with easy direct to the large dinghy garage area from the bathing platform which is suitable for housing a tender and lift raft when required.
There is plenty of seating and sunbathing areas, both around the central cockpit table and on a stunning aft sun-lounger situated between the two helm stations. The lounger is cleverly designed to also convert into another table with bench seats.
Situated at the back of the cockpit it’s the perfect spot for breakfast or refreshments after a swim from the generous bathing platform. Beneath this rear bench sit the Dufour legendary exterior galley, with barbeque, sink and fridge – perfect for alfresco catering and socialising.
