Innovative in her lines and in the continuity of the latest additions of the Dufour shipyard
DUFOUR 37 – As for the seakindliness of this yacht, she benefits from a modern and stable hull as you’d see on offshore racing boats, but with a slightly rounded lower hull that favours her passage through the water, while reducing the sound inside the yacht.
This new hull form allows for a greater power/weight ratio for this boat that measures 10.8 metres overall: the feel at the helm is improved and offers more pleasure to the helmsman whatever point of sail you are on.
On this new model, and particularly in comparison with other models in her size category, the mast has been lengthened to give increased sail area and make this yacht even more powerful.
The Dufour 37, like her predecessor the Dufour 360, has a single rudder and twin steering wheels. Thanks to having just one rudder, futur owners will enjoy greater responsiveness and liveliness as he is under way.
For the interior, there are two layouts available depending on your sailing programme.
In the two-cabin version, you can enjoy a very large bathroom (and a large exterior storage locker), as well as two independent cabins, including the owner’s suite at the front. Six berths are possible thanks to the saloon table which can be transformed into a berth.
In the three-cabin version of the Dufour 37, up to eight guests can be accommodated.
In both layouts, owners will find a forward owner’s cabin whose size and comfort is rarely found on a yacht of this length.
The Dufour 37 benefits from the major innovations that made the latest Dufour sailing yacht such a success:
•the plancha grill, found on the aft deck, is an essential feature on the latest Dufour models
•Fully inflatable cockpit upholstery
•A front sundeck completes the exterior features of this new model.
•Inside, the saloon table becomes a third or fourth bed (depending on the version chosen)
•The hull and deck windows have been enlarged to make the saloon a very bright space
