We are delighted to present the new flagship of the yard, the Dufour 61.
The Dufour 61 has been designed in the true tradition of the Dufour range.
Developed to provide simple instinctive sailing. This new model combines luxury and simplicity to guarantee an incomparable sailing experience manageable without the need of crew.
The hull is a mono bloc structure made using the “infusion” process. GRP bulkheads are laminated directly to the deck and hull, creating an incredibly strong, rigid hull and a true single structure which is essential in a yacht of this size for stiffness and ultimate sailing performance.
The Dufour 61 is offered in 3 layouts with two different galley locations and optional pullman cabins, whilst maintaining spacious living space and enjoying plenty of natural day light through the large windows and portholes now a familiar signature of the Dufour range.
You can be assured of the attention to detail and quality behind this new and exciting yacht as well as the undoubted performance that will be offered by her underwater design and sail plan.
The construction and layout of the deck have been devised to guarantee the boat’s robustness and safety on board, along with comfort on deck.
The bulwark is directly integrated in the boat’s hull, and the coach roof has been designed to leave room for a broad foredeck enhancing both style and comfort.
On deck the functional areas used for managing the working aspects of the yacht are separate from the areas intended for relaxation.
All control lines are lead aft to allow separation between relaxation and functional area. Steps in front of each helm allow easy and safe passage from the cockpit areas on to the side decks.
Family and guests can enjoy the plentiful seating and sun bathing areas provided around the central cockpit table and the additional areas at the rear of the cockpit without being disturbed.
The aft garage area has been designed to house a tender and as with many of the Dufour Yachts there is the exterior galley areas with barbecue, sink and fridge. There is also a stunning aft sun bed which also converts into a dining area.
There are three layout options designed fundamentally around whether or not you sail yourself or employ the services of a skipper and crew.
All layout options offer a pullman and an additional forward crew cabin accessible from the foredeck.
The layout with forward galley interconnects the different living spaces. The port aft galley leads into a dedicated captains cabin.
The master cabin, as spacious as it is luxurious, offering a privileged private space for relaxation onboard. You will appreciate the large wardrobe and numerous storage cupboards.
Large side hull windows and deck windows flood natural light into the saloon and cabins.
Elegant woodwork and practical storage areas with dedicated navigation area.
Well Equipped Galley with excellent stowage and a high capacity Fridge / Freezer.
