Dufour DNA

Design Signature and Dufour Yacht’s DNA

A yacht must meet many functions, they have to be safe with logical interaction of all controls. They should be beautiful whilst practical and easy to handle.  Finally they must have a strong sailing performance with a comfortable and well equipped interior.
