About this Dufour 45E Performance


The flowing lines of the coach-roof, the uncluttered deck, a cockpit that’s broad yet offers good protection… High-quality deck fittings coupled with Dufour ergonomics enable everyone to handle this boat easily. At the helm, nothing can stop you — you have a thoroughbred racer in your hands.

The interior impresses with the space and fittings worthy of a large cruising yacht. Many experienced sailors have noticed its superiority in this respect, compared with yachts that aim for comfort alone
