Dufour 430 - NEW FLEET ENTRY | Innovative Cruise
- Monday, 10 February 2020
The all-new Dufour 430 encompasses the finest elements that define Dufour Yachts. Perfomance along with natural elegance.
An authentic cruiser with exceptional seafaring qualities designed for great and fast thrills. The definition of a seafarer's trusted pick.
The deck is perfectly optimised with easy on-board movement and extensive premium equipment.
The cockpit is large and spacious with twin wheels on well-designed pods, a centerline table with folding leaves and bench seats for six to dine al fresco.
With the stern platform folded down, the cockpit seems to expand by 25 percent. And, once folded down, you can stand back there and raise the helm seats to reveal a gas grill and a sink where you can barbeque to your heart’s content.
The Dufour 430 is designed for those in search of bigger sensations on the water. It guarantees sensational enjoyment during all your sailing experiences.
The 430 has a simple sloop rig with swept back spreaders. It has a self-tacking jib as standard and you can then either opt for a reaching sail on the bow sprit, which would be a lot of fun and fast, or you can change out the jib for an overlapping genoa.
Or you could do both. My choice would be to go with the overlapping genoa and add a larger reaching sail to the bow sprit.
Down below, the 430 has several innovative layout features you won’t see on many boats. In the saloon, the galley is all the way forward, with the stove and sinks to port and another large counter and the drawer refrigerators to starboard.
Couples who enjoy cooking together, chef and sous chef, will like this arrangement. In the standard plan, the large L-shaped sofa or dinette is on the starboard side with the aft-facing chart table behind it.
To port there is the aft head and a two-person loveseat. The standard layout has two good-size quarter cabins aft and a master cabin forward with a walk-around double berth and a large head
