New D-360 To Make North American Debut

The new Dufour 360 Grand Large is coming to North America this spring!  Despite it’s smaller size, this exciting model fully delivers in the Dufour tradition, successfully balancing exceptional sailing qualities with abundant living space and creature comforts for your cruising pleasure.


Wider aft sections create more space both on deck and down below. The expanded cockpit has more seating options, a larger swim platform and our trademark exterior galley to maximize the enjoyment of life at sea.
