NEXT GRAND LARGE GENERATION

New hull design

The 390 and 430 Grand Large join the next generation of the popular Dufour Grand Large Range.

Designed by Umberto Felci, with the recent innovations inspired from the Dufour Exclusive range, these new models are distinguished by the bulwarks to deck integration and the magnificent hull recess, now a signature of this highly regarded range.

Furthermore, the improved forward volume and modern aft chines make these hulls more spacious and fast.

Hull development

These latest designs have led to optimizing the ratio between the maximum navigation efficiency and the need to offer ever greater interior volumes.

The new hulls finds their maximum speed downwind, but also perform extremely well upwind, thanks above all to the new “bow to stern” hull volumes development by Felci.

New deck design – complete modernization

The new deck design is a prowess of balance between stunning aesthetic lines and the correct dimension of each area and integration of all these new functions.

The roof proportions have evolved in comparison with Grand Large predecessors and now offer more interior space while conserving pleasant side deck width, as is now a dominate feature in all Dufour sail yachts.

Exterior equipment – increasing standard

Both the D390 and D430 show a consistent evolution of their standard inclusions.

Among the novelties, are the elegant helm pod consoles, the sublime ladder integrated in the aft platform, the double opening companion doors and the LED lighting on deck.

Furthermore, both models now support the popular Bow Delphine which houses the integrated bow roller making anchoring even easier. This also makes setting your cruising sails a dream without any clutter forward of the furler.
