Innovative and in line with the new dynamics of the shipyard.

The Dufour 470 symbolises the renewal of the brand, in particular with a 4-cabin layout that so far did not exist on the market. She is also innovative through her design and her racy, “powerful” aspect, which it totally embraces.
The Dufour 470 demonstrates the shipyard’s determination to always offer innovations while drawing inspiration from Dufour’s long history and expertise.

DUFOUR 470-She also symbolises the brand’s revival, which has already begun with the Dufour 530, and she benefits from our shipyard’s DNA while offering a touch of modernity.
The Dufour 470 integrates all the essential elements of our brand: a cockpit that is entirely closed, telescopic davits, or a large bathing platform. Everything is done for the owner to feel at ease; the engine compartment has also been loaded with innovations.

Instinctive Sailing

As for the interior, it remains true to Dufour’s DNA with her large cabin and balanced layout.
This new model, like all the others, is available in three versions: Easy, Ocean or Performance, to meet every sailing requirement.
Whichever version you choose, you will experience the beautiful sensations for which DUFOUR is renowned.


The interior is faithful to Dufour DNA with its large galley at the front of the saloon.
The versatility of this model lies in the interior layout of the saloon, with the possibility of having a front or longitudinal galley. The living rooms and cabins are well balanced and enjoy lots of natural daylight. In terms of exterior features, the Dufour 470 incorporates all the brand’s essentials:

  • The fully enclosed cockpit, the outdoor galley with plancha and sink
  • The optional built-in telescopic davits
  • A huge swim platform with integrated swim ladder.
  • Circulation in the cockpit is greatly facilitated
  • A high performance sail plan
    This new model stands out thanks to a new shell design that allows to refine the silhouette while keeping impressive interior volumes.
    The Dufour 470 has a new refined hull design based on the model of modern racing boats, which allows for greater sailing stability and improved maritime performance

« “The new way we want to look at the design of our boats is perfectly represented by this
model, which, like the Dufour 530 that preceded her in the range, is extremely versatile and
comes with a great capacity for customisation. Working from this principle, we will be able
to build many different versions for many different customers. With six different interiors and
three different deck layouts, that makes 18 different Dufour 470, from the high-performance
version with her deep keel, tall rig and owner’s layout, to the 5-cabin charter version with her
helm stations where you can handle the boat on your own.
» Romain Motteau Deputy Managing Director

The Dufour 470 is available in three interior layouts with two galley variations. All versions are available with skipper cabin. Dufour offers a new innovative program. The versatility of the deck layouts actually brings three different boats to markets. The multiple versions available will certainly enhance her success both with private owners and charter customers. As for the Performance version, DUFOUR is definitely reconnecting to the racing roots of the shipyard.

The “Easy” version is for owners and
renters looking for simplicity and comfort.
Its refined traditional manoeuvring plan,
with its two winches and its self-tacking
jib is the perfect compromise between
performance, great mobility and comfort.

The “Ocean” version is ideal for owners who
want a more traditional manoeuvring plan
with the sheets positioned on the coamings
and the halyard and mainsail traveler
manoeuvres close to the helm station. This
version with more sail area allows you to
gain in marine performance.

The “Performance” version is ideal for
lovers of great thrills and regatta sailors.
With its 6 high quality winches, her clew
at the bottom of the cockpit and her
“Performance” equipment, this model is
transformed into a pure-racer.
