The official launch of the Dufour 390 and 430 Grand Large and Dufour catamaran 48 took place at the recent Cannes Yachting Festival. Ed Penn, general manager from the Dufour Australia office of Performance Cruising Yachts attended the show for a look at the models.
“Dufour’s designer, Umberto Felci and his team, have done a magnificent job in the design of the new models further improving the hull shape, the aesthetics and of course the sailing performance,” said Penn upon return. “The soft chine, solid bulwarks and new generation decking made the new models a real stand out at the show”.
Both models were presented with teak interiors and luxury parquet flooring giving a “real premium finish".
Dufour also unveiled its 12 volt panel which includes connectivity with smart phones.
“We are confident that the new generation 390 and 430 will be popular amongst Australian buyers,” said Ed.
Performance Cruising Yachts have stock models on order and available for delivery early this year.
