About Dufour Yachts
For 45 years Dufour Yachts has developed award-winning sailing yachts. Distinguished styling, racing performance, combined with family comfort has given Dufour an internationally-known reputation for excellence.
Since 1965 Dufour has been building the highest quality performance cruising yachts for a very discerning European market. When Michel Dufour first began producing his inaugural sailboat line, Sylpie, he may not have realized that 8 short years later, in 1973 Dufour would become France’s leading production boat builder, earning the national French Export Prize.
Dufour’s high-performance hull lines continue to capture the imagination, while below the elegant and spacious mahogany interiors delight with their modern, comfortable looks and superb craftsmanship. The highest quality materials and production techniques are a staple at Dufour Yachts.
