Summer is Here! Get in the Cockpit and Grill!


The Dufour 560 and many other Dufour models have several features that similar sized performance cruisers just don’t have. And as you can see in the photo above, the enormous cockpit of the 560 that doubles as super-stylish portable sun deck at anchor is just one of them.


But what really sets Dufour’s apart is the ingenious built-in cockpit “galley” that’s integrated into the stern area of the 560 and other models. Hot and cold pressure water is available in the sink, the cook top is big enough to cook a gourmet meal, and there’s counter space and storage space too. Why would you ever want to cook anywhere else?


Of course, every galley needs a fridge, right? The fridge that’s built into the sturdy cockpit table insures there’s always have a cold drink close at hand.

Lifting the gas-shock powered stern seats reveals the entire galley and provides easy-to-pass-through cockpit access. As you can see, the swim platform is huge and there’s tons of storage space for both the liferaft and other on-deck essentials.


But when you’re really ready to chill out, the cockpits on these models convert into ultra-comfortable lounge areas. I mean check out the “beds” on the stern seats when they down. Wake me up when it’s time for cocktails!

We at Dufour take the comfort of being at anchor as seriously as the boat’s performance undersell and it shows. So get out there and sail, and sunbathe, and GRILL!
