Maximum Performance with Minimum Effort

This stunning yacht with her stunning elegant lines offers ultimate levels of luxury and comfort.

The powerful aft section of the hull along with a high ballast ratio offers great stability able to support a more powerful rig for improved performance without compromising safety or comfort.

Great care and attention has been paid to the design of the keel and rudder so as to handle the performance offered from this powerful yacht. Flexible sail plan options allow set up for short handed or fully crewed passages.

On board, the Dufour Exclusive 56 offers all the comfort and luxury features of a yacht, whilst providing everything a sailing enthusiast would need.

Dufour 382 Review
The versatile Dufour 382 Grand Large – a wolf in sheep’s clothingDesigned to optimise on board comfort in all sailing conditions, the 382 GL is a highly versatile all-rounder with six distinct versions, and an extensive choice of galley, cabin and heads combinations.
Dufour 350 Review
Dufour Yachts 350 Grand Large – deceptively spacious and behaves like a much larger boat.Designed to look great, sail well, offer maximum space and comfort, the 350GL seeks to be as practical and functional as possible borrowing features from its larger sisters in the Grand Large range.
Dufour 310 Review
This fast, nippy 9.35m long yacht may be the smallest in Dufour’s Grand Large range, yet she has bags of character and is easy to steer short-handed or even single-handed.A sophisticated, compact yacht with excellent performance, combining all the technology, iconic style and comfort that can be packed into her from the larger Grand Large models.
Dufour 460 Review
The Dufour 460 Grand Large offers a perfect balance between functionality and elegance.Defined by her sleek and beautiful lines the Dufour 460 certainly stands out from the crowd and is much admired on any dock.Read our review and find out more.
