The Dufour 56 has been designed to satisfy customers looking for the perfect balance between performance, style, luxury and comfort. Respecting the DNA essence of the Dufour Shipyard, this new project inherits the excellent navigational skills that have made the brand successful internationally. The water lines are very balanced, with powerful aft sections, low wet surface and a very effective set of appendages (keel and rudder). The high ratio of ballast and greater stability of the hull shape allows the boat to support a powerful sail plan without sacrificing comfort and safety during cruising. The sail plan has been designed to guarantee maximum performance with minimum effort. The fixed bowsprit, the self-tacking jib and the forward inclined boom are characteristic of a sail plan derived from the experience of solitary navigation, during which ease of handling during navigation is essential. The flagship Dufour 56 sets the highest standards in terms of aesthetics: the yacht represents modern elegance, luxury and dynamism. The deck spaces are well divided between the work areas and the areas dedicated to relaxation. Deck decks are very large and unobstructed to guarantee maximum safety during navigation. An easy stern garage to house the 3.10 meter tender is extremely accessible and well integrated. The "German-style" mainsheet system and the self-tacking jib allow an easy and precise driving even with reduced crew. Handcrafted features and modern and functional design elements represent the interior of this boat. The interior design was achieved thanks to the collaboration between the Dufour Shipyard design team, the owners and dealers. The result is a yacht with a unique internal layout, with particular attention to the dinette: the owner can customize his boat with different materials and fabrics and choose from 4 different layouts of the owner's cabin.
