2014 Dufour 40e Performance
Dufour 40e Performance
The very design of the Performance 40e allows you to seize what other people can’t grasp: the intense excitement you get from slicing through the water at high speed, while keeping total control. Specifically designed to allow you to experience this powerful feeling, it has a regatta hull, a competition-oriented keel, and a sharp rudder. Add to this a dual helm and a spacious cockpit, sleek down all its lines, and you have before you a Performance 40e ready for regattas as well as for high-speed cruising. Elegant, sensitive, and a good performer, the latest Dufour in the Performance range won everyone over right away.
The target set for architect Umberto Felci and the Dufour Yachts Design Office was to come up with something even better than the Dufour 40. What a challenge! And they more than came up with the goods! Its many qualities speak for themselves: finesse, precision, exciting sailing.
Take a look at:
Cruising/racing deck layout, suitable for sailing with a full or reduced crew, out on the open sea or between two buoys.
Below decks, the refinement and quality of Dufour Yachts’ interior.
All adding up to a fast boat for racing or just for the pleasure of skimming through the water, and at the same time letting you enjoy proper cruising in comfort.
