It’s been fun explaining how Dufour Yachts are built. But it’s even more fun hearing from happy owners who sail their boats all over the world. And that’s what makes this next video post so special.
We bumped into one of our South American Dufour dealers, Alvaro Bermudez, at the Miami boat show last month, and he’s inspired us with this story of sailing a new Dufour 410 from the factory in La Rochelle all the way across the Atlantic (and the Equator) to his home in Uruguay. The trip took 45 days and it sounded fantastic. And the cool thing is you can see for yourself. Alvaro was kind enough to share some of his video footage of the trip and we’ve spliced it together with some of the interview we did with him in Miami. Makes you want to get out there and sail over the horizon doesn’t it?
And we want to hear from you too. Please send us photos and videos of your Dufour here. We’ll be featuring the best photos and videos in future blog posts, and the wining submissions will earn a free Dufour hat too.
