Dufour 310

Quick, fun and responsive

At just over 30 feet (9.67m) The Dufour 310 may be the smallest in Dufour Yachts’s Grand Large range but she has bags of character and is great fun to sail.

She follows the same iconic style, features and principles of all her larger Dufour sisters demonstrating superb performance and is easy to steer short-handed or even single-handed. Her easy handling makes it an ideal first boat, especially for couples or a young family, and perfect for cruising coastal waters and snuggling into the best, sheltered havens and anchorages.

As well as offering a lot of performance the compact Dufour 310 makes smart use of the space above and below decks for both practical purposes and fantastic comfort for onboard living.


  • Powerful performance from the high aspect ratio sail plan
  • Advanced and balanced keel shape and twin rudders designed to maximise control.
  • Option for lifting keel which draws 0.95 up and 2.1 down.
  • Integrated self tacking headsail as standard with options for 108% overlapping genoa for simple sail handling.
  • Low positioning of gooseneck to help handle and pack the mainsail.
  • Swept back spreaders and full width chain plate attachments negating the need for backstays, creating greater space along the side decks better movement and in the cockpit for improved comfort and access.
