The Dufour Grand Large range continues to evolve, producing boats with a perfect balance between comfort, performance and timeless design.
The strategy of Dufour Yachts, which has been producing boats for 50 years, is to increase its product portfolio, and now the range has been enriched with a 31 feet yacht containing details and technology typical of bigger boats. Particular attention has been posed in trying to simplify its use. The standard boat has a fixed 1.90m draft bulb keel, but can also be fitted with a optional fixed shoal draft keel (1.6m) or a lifting keel (0.95m-2.10m), where the boat can self stand, ideal for lakes as well as specific areas of very shallow water, including the East Coast.
The new yacht is a fast cruiser whose waterlines, deck and interior design achieve a perfect balance. This is the result of the passion for the sea and care for details with which Dufour Yachts have obtained their position as an international market leader.
The new Grand Large 310 will be presented at a special world preview at the Paris Boatshow in December, and provides unique pleasure when it comes to cruising: it is fast, lots of fun, well-balanced, comfortable and easy to steer, even for a single handed purpose.
There are many reasons why this model is so special, starting with the project’s designers. Once again Dufour Yachts has relied on the talented and innovative design of Felci with whom the yard won both European and American yacht of the year with the Dufour 36 Performance in 2013.
The Dufour 310 deck is an evolution of the latest design trend of recent Dufour GL models, inspired by the original “Arpage” deck shape.
The cockpit is pretty unique being the first one with double steering wheels as standard as well as double rudder blades to guarantee perfect boat balance and control even when heeled. The sail plan is presenting a high aspect ratio to maximize performance on one hand, while on the other the non overlapping self tacking jib guarantees maximum ease of use with a limited crew.
The Dufour 310 has an internal layout divided into two cabins, an ample dinette and one bathroom. The precious oak materials have been entrusted to experts and skilful craftsmen.
Particular attention has been paid to enhancing the flow of light, from the big hull and deck windows lots of natural light is guaranteed, which makes the interior a pleasure to live in.
This boat reflects a discreet and comfortable concept of luxury.
The Grand Large 310 embodies the lifestyle that Dufour has infused into its projects over the last 50 years, distinguished by an authentic passion for the sea, design, technology, performance and innovation, as well as safety.
