The Dufour 560 was for quite some time the flagship in the Dufour range and as such you will naturally find a another level of luxury and comfort around the boat so that you can totally relax and enjoy life onboard this truly beautiful yacht.
Designed by Umberto Felci she benefits from many of the same stunning design features found amongst many other Dufour Yachts. Sleek lines, balanced hull shape, very effective keel and rudder design. The sail plan has been designed from maximum performance with a fraction of the effort.
Immediately you are struck by the light airiness of the cabin area. In part this is due to the choice of interior wood (light oak) but also it is down to the large deck windows and hatches which allow for plenty of natural light and ventilation.
The master cabin forward has the double berth offset to the port side so that you have easy access in and out of the generous double bed. Opposite is a dressing table and small sofa.
There is a large ensuite heads forward with separate shower, toilet and sink areas.
The central galley creates a more than ample sized area for cooking onboard. On the port side there is a 3 burner cooker with oven and grill, dishwasher along with a double sink. On the starboard side is a 240v microwave, a full upright fridge and plenty of storage space.
The saloon has a large dining table that is fully adjustable and converts to a double berth. On the starboard side is comfortable seating area and navigation station.
Aft are two large double cabins both with ensuite heads.
The large cockpit has comfortable seating all round, there is a large cockpit locker portside and a huge space under the cockpit floor available for storage of dinghies, fenders etc also accessible from the transom when the platform is lowered. Under the seating / aft sun pad is a integrated gas cooker / grill with sink. Centrally within the cockpit table is an upright fridge.
The german mainsheet system allows the mainsail to be adjusted from either helm position, the rest of the control lines are led back to the winches at the companionway entrance.
The Elvstrom sails are the upgraded laminate version. The mainsail is stowed in a stack pack, the handling of which is made much easier by the low position of the gooseneck. The self tacking jib ensures that sail handling is very easy.
Asymetrics and code zero's can be flown from the purposely designed dolphin bow.
Movement around the uncluttered deck is very easy, helped by the outboard positioning of the shroud attachments.
At the forward end of the boat is a large deck locker with access from the foredeck.
