World's Best Cruiser of the Year, 40-49'.
The largest of Dufour’s renowned Performance-line of yachts, the
Dufour 45E contains a fully-redesigned cockpit layout that has
unparalleled versatility. Designed to acomodate both a crewed racing,
or a short-handed performance cruising program. The flat, sizeable
coach roof, wide side decks and large open cockpit make getting around
easier for the crew on race day, and entertaining friends and family
on long weekends. Her elegant, discreet and practical spaces open onto
the sea for easy sun bathing, swimming, and other activities.
The Dufour 45E proves that it is very possible to experience the
excitement of high performance sailing in complete comfort. Consistent
with Dufour's long-standing reputation, the Dufour 45E features a very
spacious forward cabin fitted out with ample and intelligently
designed storage spaces. The atmosphere is cozy, warm and filled with
light. Her interior is built with real wood finishes rarely found in
the competition’s production yachts. As soon as you enter her Salon,
you’ll know you’ve found a yacht unlike any other in the marina.
Her high-quality grains, hand-made cabinets, plush soft-goods
are borrowed from a different era of European yacht-building.
Behind the bulkheads, you will be at peace, knowing all
electrical systems, plumbing, and structural processes have been done
right. Wiring is clearly labeled, plumbing fits and doesn’t leak, and
bulkheads are built to last.
The new Dufour 45E is a modern sailing yacht, equipped to
compete in the most professional regattas or to experience the
comfortable life of a family cruise in total safety.
