Performance Cruising makes a move into catamarans
Appointed dealer for Dufour Catamarans
Performance Cruising Yachts is proud to announce that we are the exclusive dealer for the Dufour Catamaran brand in Australia and New Zealand. Dufour Catamarans was formerly owned by Dufour Yachts but was sold to the Fozzy Group in late 2020. The Fozzy Group is one of the largest trade industrial groups in Eastern Europe and also owns the very successful Under the Heavens Sailing Cruises in Croatia
We look forward to showcasing the first catamaran from the brand, the Dufour 48.
We have been selling yachts in the Australian market for 18 years and are beyond excited to add this prestigious catamaran to our portfolio, which includes the Elan brand of high-quality monohulls. The first Dufour 48 Catamaran has just arrived into Sydney and we cannot wait to show it off.
This beautifully constructed catamaran is built in Italy by Italian craftsmen and designed by the revered and world-famous Italian naval architect Umberto Felci. The contemporary design ensures a combination of style and performance to make for the perfect cruising catamaran. The mast has been placed further aft to allow for larger headsails, and the boom is more angled than in most monohulls. The self-tacking jib combined with the mainsail creates a total sail area of over 120m2.
The Dufour 48 Catamaran has beautiful outdoor living areas designed specifically for comfort and entertaining. The huge flybridge with stair access from both starboard and port sides provides a separate area to relax and lie in the sun. There is a wide L-shaped sofa at the back, and in front of the helm, you’ll find a double sunbed. The central helm station is compact, with winches nearby so that the catamaran can be operated entirely from the flybridge.
Being built in Italy on the Adriatic Coast has the distinct geographical advantage for customers wanting a European delivery with easy access to the cruising grounds of Croatia, Greece and Turkey.
