Dufour 382 Grand Large North American Debut

ZG6bQQXViXFacM_gJ3V2P8IRzHinYkZJT5iDW2upRlQWe’re extremely excited to announce that one of our newest and most versatile models will be making its North American debut at the US Sailboat Show in Annapolis from October 8-12.

The Dufour 382 Grand Large is a 37-footer that has the soul of a much bigger boat because Umberto Felci and the Dufour design team have come up with innovative solutions to insure this good-looking performance cruiser is available in a wide range of configurations that you don’t usually see on boats in the 30-foot range.

The boat that will be on display in Annapolis has two cabins, one head and an “L” shaped galley. It also has a huge cockpit locker on the port side. m5t7ZKYJHJ7z1DABUgamkkS3ZnjfWY1PRiWefvvZFhsA set of double doors opening to the enclosed forward cabin open up the saloon to provide a spacious social area that’s bright and airy thanks to two big deck windows and several opening hatches.

The sailplan offers the same flexibility and can be configured to suit your sailing preferences and prevailing weather. You can order a new 382 with: a standard or tall mast, self-tacking jib or overlapping genoa, classic mainsail or in-mast furling.  A fixed sprit can also be added to accommodate a gennaker or furling Code Zero sail as well.

The huge cockpit, large, drop-down transom, dual helms, and clever helm seats are additional examples of how the Dufour design team looked to maximize every inch of space on deck. And it works beautifully.
