MANUFACTURER’S COMMENTS:

Every day, we strive to design yachts to make your dreams of offshore adventures a reality.
A peerless long-range sailing yacht with stunning aesthetics, the Dufour 56 is designed, first and foremost, for high-sea sailing. Fast, seaworthy and reliable in all circumstances, it embodies the very essence of a powerful, safe and easy-to-manoeuvre sailboat. With its tilling consoles equipped with commands for all winches and electric furlers, sailing on the Dufour 56 is child’s play. Inside, the Dufour 56 sets a new standard for on-board luxury and comfort with a sophisticated design and high-end features.

PRESS REVIEW:

Dufour’s new 56 Exclusive looks anything but plain or boring. It simply oozes French-Italian chic and, despite conforming to the template of the modern, high-volume production cruiser, it does so in its own way.

I discovered this on a day of testing when we experienced everything from bright sunshine, 15 knots of breeze and flat water to torrential rain squalls, a hailstorm, winds nudging 30 knots and the sort of wind-over-tide chop that’s a speciality of Cowes Roads.

It wouldn’t be spoiling the story to say that the new Dufour took it all in its stride, as you would hope. After all, if a boat of this size made heavy weather of a brisk day in the Solent, something would be seriously amiss.

What it did was to demonstrate that Dufour has successfully tweaked and refined the Grand Large 560, first launched in 2014. The changes are mostly detailing and styling, following suggestions by owners and bringing the boat right up to date. In its new guise, the 56 and its 63ft sister now form the ‘Exclusive’ range at the top of Dufour’s line-up…

This new Dufour is undoubtedly a stylish boat, but not one where style has won at the expense of substance. The ergonomics and practicalities have been well thought out for the sort of use it’s most likely to see. It also sails nicely, offers a lot of boat for the money and is easy to handle under both sail and power…

…Whatever any traditionalists might think, the demands of today’s buyers are changing and the Dufour 56 is proof of that. It’s a boat I suspect buyers will find a pleasure to live with.
