First Look: Dufour 460 Grand Large


The newest Dufour is still so new we can only give you a glimpse of the 3D drawings. But its easy to see that the Dufour 460 is a modern, high-performance cruiser that fits perfectly into our line of sophisticated, award-winning boats.

And like the hugely popular 560 (and all of our new-generation models that we partnered with Umberto Felci to design), the smaller, 460 has the same dual wheels in the cockpit, the same highly efficient self-tacking jib, the same, ultra sexy hard chine aft, and of course it’s equipped with the same bow-sprit that forms a great mounting point for code 0 as well as an easier way to deploy the anchor without damaging the boat’s plumb bow.


As you can also see, the new 460 boats the hugely popular aft swim platform and outdoor “galley.”Dufour 46 GL - Forward galley version 6The interior is bright, spacious and modern. The galley up by the bulkhead allows the salon seating area to occupy the widest area of the boat.

The salon also benefits from significant headroom and plenty of light from both fixed windows and opening hatches.

So that’s just a taste. The first models are being built now and the boat will be making its debut at the Cannes Boat Show in France in September. We’re putting together several VIP tours to see the new 460 as soon as it’s launched over at the factory in France.
