Dufour 405

About the Dufour 405

The 405 is a great looking, modern boat. Fast on the water with lots of room below, two heads and everything you need for superior comfort in port. There's a drop down transom/bathing platform and twin wheels.

There can be few better cruising grounds than the Mediterranean's southern Ionians, and the Dufour 405 is the ideal choice. This modern yacht comes fully equipped for self catering and even comes with a free Stand up Paddleboard for your week away.

The Dufour 405 is a cruising boat, but with performance and 'get up and go' in mind, as is evidenced by the plumb bow and the abrupt stern. As you would expect,

The twin wheel helm has all primary winches close to hand and is very well laid out. The accommodation is very well thought out, steering clear of the 'fussy' and offers plenty of storage area.

That the Dufour 405 Grand'Large was voted 'European Boat of the Year' in 2010 will come as no surprise to those who have sailed one, which is why we are so pleased to offer the newer and updated 2012 model to our guests.
