Crosshaven Boatyard, Irish distributors for Dufour Yachts, have shared their excitement at the upcoming debut of the Dufour 37.

As previously noted on Afloat.ie, this unique, high-performance and spacious sailing boat will be on display afloat for her world premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival from 6-11 September.

“The new Dufour 37 is a stunning looking yacht,” Crosshaven Boatyard’s Hugh Mockler tells Afloat.ie. “She comes with a number of new features that will appeal to a variety of sailors.

“Her standard keel has a draft of 1.90m with the option of a deeper keel for more performance. There is excellent flexibility in relation to how the boat is set up for any potential owner.

“Speed and comfort are very much to the fore with the Dufour 37,” Mockler adds. “Her forward cabin is amazing for this size boat with her double berth easily accessible from either side. She will certainly fit the needs of the Irish sailor whether it be for racing or cruising.

“This model along with a number of the Dufour models are nearly sold out already for the 2023 season.”

Just days after Cannes, the compact new Dufour 32 will make its UK debut at the Southampton International Boat Show 2022 — where it will be on show alongside the Dufour 390, 430 and the British Yachting Awards cruising yacht of the year winner, the Dufour 470.
 
Mockler previously shared with Afloat.ie that the launch of this ultra-modern, sporty sailing yacht is exciting news for the Irish market.

The Dufour Yachts Shipyard is delighted to announce the launch of a new model, the Dufour 37.

This unique, high-performance and spacious sailing boat will be on display afloat for her world premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival from 6-11 September 2022, with a press launch preceding the festival from 5pm local time on Monday 5 September at the Radisson Blu 1835 Hôtel.

Continuing on in the line of other recent models in the range, this boat was designed as a collaboration between the Dufour design team and Umberto Felci.

“We are extremely proud of this new project because the new Dufour 37 represent a new point of arrival reached after an intense work of rethinking and redesigning the whole complexity of a modern 10m yacht,” the Italian designer said.

The Dufour DNA
The Dufour 37 has a modern and stable hull as can be seen on offshore racing boats, but with a slightly rounded lower hull that favours her passage through the water and improve marine performance.

True Plaisir During Every Navigation
On board the Dufour 37, there are large outdoor living spaces. This new model has a larger cockpit than other yachts of this size for even greater comfort on board.

An Optimised Bow Area
The bow area of the Dufour 37 also offers a real relaxation area with her inflatable sundeck, a real innovation on this new model.

A Large Saloon and Cabins, Bathed in Light
The Dufour 37, in her two or three cabins version, has an owner’s cabin whose size and comfort is rarely found on a yacht of this length and even more light into the convivial living space of the saloon.
