CRUISING WORLD's 2011 BOAT OF THE YEAR WINNER || Comments from the judging panel ranged from, "The boat's overall sailing performance is outstanding." to "It's easy to sail singlehanded since both the double-ended mainsheet and jib sheets lead to winches near the wheels." to "The accommodations plan is spacious and comfortable."
The Dufour 45e is a fast and powerful cruiser with elegant lines, long legs and an interior built to meet a high expectation for comfort. Steering this perfectly balanced and highly maneuverable yacht is an addicting experience. True versatillity allows the 45E to dominate the club racing scene and also accomodate a crew of 6 for long distance cruising excursions.
About the 45E
The flowing lines of the coach-roof, the uncluttered deck, a cockpit that’s broad yet offers good protection.
High-quality deck fittings coupled with Dufour ergonomics enable everyone to handle this animal easily. At the helm, nothing can stop you — you have a thoroughbred racer in your hands.
The interior impresses at once with the space and fittings worthy of a large cruising yacht. Many connoisseurs have remarked on its superiority in this respect, compared with yachts that aim for comfort alone.
