The Dufour 37 offers extensive versatility for coastal sailing, cruising and racing, and incorporates many additional features. She has a modern, stable hull and improved performance in all weather conditions. The sleek, slightly rounded lower hull design enables smooth passage through the water while reducing any interior noise.

Equally performance-driven and boasting beautiful craftsmanship, the Dufour 41 prioritises an outdoor lifestyle, designed with a spacious deck plan and generously sized cabins exuding a luxurious feel. 

Following an exclusive preview weekend in August, these new models and the Dufour 470 will be available to view at the Southampton International Boat Show on Berths M315, M317, M321, M329 and M331.
