Dufour

Dufour

  This well-known French brand began life in the late 1960s with Michel Dufour’s iconic 30ft Arpege. This design was one of the first to fully embrace the possibilities of the then new boat building material of fibreglass. It featured a curved superstructure, a short keel with separate skeg-hung rudder, wide beam and a heavy bulb on the bottom of the keel to maximise stability. Other larger (35 and 41ft) models followed, as did a slightly more modest range of cruisers, but the original company was another that did not weather the 1980s downturn. However, the name was revived in the following decade, with a range of modern cruising yachts that immediately proved popular and within a few years the line-up was expanded with three performance cruiser designs between 34-45ft.

Description/Condition

The Dufour 50 Classic will impress lovers of large traditional yachts. Her majestic silhouette, fine underbody and immense deck area, beamy cockpit, and large steering wheel gives her the looks of a big ocean racer. The Classic 50 design from the board of Berret Racoupeau proudly crowns the Classic range. Inside, accommodations are designed for easy circulation throughout the boat and to preserve intimacy for the passengers. Two large double cabins aft and three cabins forward are separated by a passageway, and all rooms are accessed by individual cabin doors. Three head compartments and an independent shower provide appreciable comfort with a large crew. The Classic 50 - with her oversized fuel and water tanks, improved handling, and unequaled control - predestine the Dufour 50 Classic for long passages.

Many recent improvements including new standing rigging and sails.
