Dufour 41 to debut at Cannes
Scheduled to premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September, the Dufour 41 offers options for rigging, accommodation and décor.
The Dufour 41 fits between the 390 and 430 models
The world premiere of the Dufour 41 will be held at the Cannes Yachting Festival from September 12-17. Featuring an exterior by Felci Yacht Design and an interior by Ardizio Design, the model has an overall length of 39ft 4in (12m) based on a 36ft 1in (11m) hull with a beam of 13ft 1in (4m).
The Dufour 41 is available in Adventure, Ocean and Performance versions, three or four cabins, the option of a utility room, and with a choice of two interior atmospheres (Europe and Boston).
The fold-down aft platform reveals storage
The deck includes a spacious cockpit with twin helms and two facing sofas either side of a folding table, while there are numerous handrails for increased safety.
Due to increased hull windows, Dufour also says that the interior offers “60 per cent more light than other models on the market”. The lower deck includes two cabins aft, each with an aft-facing bed and the option of a bathroom each or a utility room can be chosen instead of the port head.
Master suite in the three-cabin version
The three-cabin version includes a spacious master cabin with en-suite forward. The four-cabin version includes the rare option of two cabins in the bow, each with a 1.45m-wide double bed and soundproofing between the rooms, and guests sharing access to one or two bathrooms aft.
Starboard view of the saloon and galley
The saloon includes a large C-shaped sofa to port that can be converted into a double berth, while the galley is opposite to starboard.
The La Rochelle builder’s range of sailing monohulls spans from the Dufour 32 to the flagship Dufour 61, with the new 41 fitting between the 390 and 430 models.
