2017 Dufour 512 Grand Large

The Dufour 512 perfectly combines the philosophy of a yacht with elegant and luxurious style as well as a marine boat with outstanding performances.

After the success of the Dufour 500 GL, produced up to 140 units, Dufour proposes a revisited version of this exceptionnal yacht, which benefits from all the innovations and features integrated in the latest Grand Large models.

While sailing, the new fixed bowsprit, helmsman console, and inclined boom are notorious   advantages for easy manoeuvring. At anchor, you will enjoy the fully equipped exterior galley with barbecue, sink and fridge, as well as the wide sunbeds and lighted handrails for an unreached lifestyle approach on a yacht of the same category.

Incredible performance, easily sailed and elegant, the Dufour 512 promises intense emotions in all conditions and embodies a new dimension to sailing adventures.
