Dufour 45E Performance Range 45E Performance Range

Celebrating 50 Years


The flowing lines of the coach-roof, the uncluttered deck, a cockpit that’s broad yet offers good protection… High-quality deck fittings coupled with Dufour ergonomics enable everyone to handle this boat easily. At the helm, nothing can stop you — you have a thoroughbred racer in your hands.

The interior impresses with the space and fittings worthy of a large cruising yacht. Many experienced sailors have noticed its superiority in this respect, compared with yachts that aim for comfort alone

Tender Garage

An easy accessible tender garage is well integrated in the aft working area to fit a 3,10 mt tender as well as having a large and comfortable access to the water.


The D560 has been designed in order to offer an independent cooking space on the deck : barbecue and sink are integrated at the back, and the cockpit table also includes a fridge.

Functional and Complete

The fixed bowsprit, the self tacking jib and the boom inclined forward are all examples of a sail plan that is derived from solo sailor open 60, where ease of handling in race mode are mandatory.


The clean deck plan is well balanced between manoeuvring and relaxing spaces. Various sunbath with cushions are placed at the back, as well as at the front, and guarantee maximum security for all guests.
