    The 525 Grand’large is a handsome, powerful, stable, and stiff yacht. The deck layout is configured so that it can be handled with a minimum crew, and the deep-V’d bow helps produce a very comfortable motion in any sort of seaway. That’s an important trait for a passage making cruiser to have, and this one passes with flying colors.

    Sail Magazine – August 2008



    RCD Status:
    • The yacht conforms with the essential safety requirements of Directive 94/25EC (Recreational Craft Directive) and is categorised A – “Ocean”

    Hull Construction:
    • GRP sandwich design of the hull makes for very good thermal and acoustic insulation.
    • The lamination of the network of ribs reinforces the hull’s solidity and spreads forces from the keel and rigging.
    • The inner moulding liner with its accurate surface finish produces additional stowage space under the floors and makes for easier cleaning.
    • Prevention of osmosis on hull with the use of a NPG gelcoat.
    • Antifouling, primer, zincs - June 2023
    • Professional polishing hull - June 2023

    Deck & Superstructure Construction:
    • The GRP deck structure is produced by vacuum infusion for an optimum rigidity/ lightness ratio along with excellent thermal and acoustic insulation, and has an inner moulding liner for a perfect finish.
    • Teak laid side decks, cockpit sole, cockpit seating and bathing platform.
    • Localized monolithic reinforcing areas are included under deck fittings (winches, tracks, chain-plates, cleats).
    • To increase the boat’s durability, Dufour’s team of engineers have opted to minimize wooden structural inserts beneath deck fittings.
    • A straight sheer strake forms the join between the hull and the deck. This assembly ensures the watertightness of the hull/deck join and increases safety when moving about on deck.
    • The wooden toerail emphasizes the deck line, and offers non-aggressive protection for the feet.
    • The join between the transom/hull is built flat for greater aestheticism.

    Keel & Rudder:
    • The shoal draft (bulb) keel is in cast iron: 2.00 m
    • For maximum life, keels undergo factory treatment before fitting (anti-corrosion and improved finish thanks to epoxy-based paint and coatings).
    • The keel with a large sole-plate is fixed to the boat with a system of stainless backing-plate and bolts.
    • The GRP rudder blade is semi-elliptical in shape — taking advantage of the latest research in hydrodynamics — and filled with very high density closed-cell epoxy foam to avoid any ingress of water.
    • The solid stainless rudder stock is mounted on self-aligning bearings for greater precision and lightness of the helm whatever the wind conditions.
    • Stainless steel emergency tiller with access deck-plate.


    Engine & gearbox:
    • Volvo Penta D3-110i-C 2.4 litre common rail 5-cylinder naturally aspirated diesel engine producing 110Hp @ 3,000rpm – factory upgrade from standard 75hp 4-cylinder engine.
    • Volvo shaft-drive reduction gearbox
    • Fresh water engine cooling via raw water intake and heat exchanger
    • Carefully-designed foam soundproofing.
    • Engine compartment ventilation via 100 mm ducts leading to transom (invisible ventilation openings).
    • Engine sump.
    • Volvo electric vessel control system.
    • Engine control lever and engine control panel built into aft sun platform, aft of the port helm position.
    • Fuel filter with water separator, plus sea-water filter, anti-siphon valve.

    Service, Maintenance & Performance:
    • Engine hours approx. 1,367 as of Summer 2023
    • Date of last engine service: June 2023

    Propulsion & Steering:
    • 4-bladed folding propeller
    • MaxPower VIP 150 Duo 12vDC retractable bowthruster
