The Dufour 525 is the company’s flagship, and for good reason: it’s a very impressive design, made by an Italian builder known more for its racing yachts, with an upper-deck that looks designed for the race course but is practical for even single-handling. Down below, however, the Dufour 525 offers all the conveniences and accommodations that you’d want and expect on a top-flight cruiser, and then some.
The deck is uncluttered, wide and flat, with an inviting aft deck that is perfect for sunbathing, a protected cockpit with a beautiful, just-refinished table. The location of the winches, and the continuous-run german-style main sheet make it easy for the helmsman to trim and steer easily.
Below, a rich look, plenty of cabinets, a galley fit for the food lovers, with three deep fridges. Light, openness, exceptional fittings and materials, everywhere space — the space to get together when you want, but also to have some space to yourself if that’s what you feel like.
You’ll easily be able to visualize living aboard and cruising with your family and friends.
A great Yacht!

- Forward crew cabin with head, sink and bunk.

Winner – Boat of the Year – “Best Full Size Cruiser” – Cruising World
“"The open, flat deck was just a pleasure to walk around on," said BOTY judge Ed Sherman after sailing the 525 last October off Annapolis. "I could take this boat out and sail it alone, just like a giant dinghy, and really have a good time with it." – Cruising World (Full Article)
“The 525 is the queen of Dufour's Grand' Large series, [..] aimed at the cruising sailor in search of something a little fancier and more performance oriented. […]When my turn came to sail, I sat to leeward at one of the twin wheels. Just behind me was a winch for the German-style double-ended mainsheet; just ahead was a winch for the genoa sheet. Set up like this, the 525 is easily managed by a singlehander. Sailing closehauled in 8 to 10 knots of breeze, we loped along at an effortless 6.6 knots. Easing sheets slightly, we picked up the pace, pushed along by a full-batten main and overlapping jib. It didn't take long before I was ready to agree that the Dufour 525 was indeed the Best Full-Size Cruiser of 2009.” – Cruising World (Full Article)
“The 525 hull and deck doesn't shout "cruiser", in fact it features high freeboard, slight sheer, telescopic bowsprit, near-upright stem and a low-profile coach house that give the yacht more racing than cruising features. The wide cockpit, powerful, well-positioned winches, hidden lines and twin wheel arrangement wouldn't look out of place on any modern race yacht.
So the exterior impression says "race", but then you go below...
[…] Patrick Roséo's interior is more like a plush apartment than a boat cabin. The hatches and ports are fitted with translucent blinds and seem deliberately square to make the ambience home-like. […] As a long-distance or liveaboard boat, the 525 is right at the top of its class. - Boat Point (Full Article)
