Dufour Exclusive 56 56 Exclusive

Celebrating 50 Years


The Dufour 56 Exclusive is the evolution of the 2015 Cruising World Magazine Boat of the Year winning Dufour 560.

Retaining the exceptional comfort and sailing qualities of the original platform, the hull has been enhanced with a topside embossment that streamlines her elegant profile. Dramatic LED lighting has been added throughout and an upgraded interior elevates her with a real sense of style.

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 56 Exclusive 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 maneuvering 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.
