October 8, 2019 3:21 pm

The highly anticipated Dufour 530 will be unveiled in Dusseldorf 2020. We break down all the details of what makes this sailboat so special.

Background: The 530 is a unique hybrid of the Dufour Performance and the Grand Large, making her incomparable innovation something worth seeing. The 530 was developed on the architectural premise of the Performance range – she is designed to be a racer hull, with all the comfort of a Grand Large. Her deck is open, secure, and ready for anything.

Three versions, one model

The 530 has been customized for every kind of sailor, with three versions – the Easy, the Ocean, and the Performance. Regardless of which 530 you choose, you’ll be ready to sail wherever the wind takes you, with unparalleled performance and innovation.

Easy Version:

The “Easy” is all about simplicity. With a clear roof, and manoeuvres fitted to the coamings, she’s easy to maneuver and adaptable for owners and charters alike.

An upgraded mast and boom allow for an increased sail area of 20 m2. A 2.80 meter keel is complete with a lead bulb, and her equipment gives her an overall racing look.
