Dufour 470 – ICONIC NEW CLASSIC

When Dufour’s know-how reinvents itself to craft the sailing boat of tomorrow, this results in a 47-footer, which is both beautifully designed and high-performance for incredible thrills.

The Dufour 470 combines both Dufour’s expertise and their desire to innovate. This model, in line with its predecessor, enjoys the yard’s DNA while offering an edge of sophistication. Its hull design and the fluidity of its deck layout already make it an iconic sailing boat. Dufour continue to maintain a strong connection to their roots by delivering pure performance, classic styling and luxury in an exciting new way.

Three models in one. Let your instinct do the talking.

Easy Version – This version is intended for owners and charter operators in search of simplicity and comfort. Its elegant movement plan allows great mobility.

Ocean Version – This suits owners who wish for a more traditional movement plan with the sheets positioned on the coamings and the halyard and mainsail trolley handlings near the helm station.

Performance Version – This is ideal for lovers of thrills and regatteers. With its six high-quality winches, its clew at the rear of the cockpit, and its “performance” equipment, this model is transformed into a pure racer.

An interior layout in three versions – The Dufour 470 is available in three interior layouts. Every sailor will find what they are seeking, either with a large crew or a reduced crew. Created by Felci Yacht Design, all three versions feature an expansive cockpit, complete with outdoor galley, twin helms and plenty of room for relaxing or grinding winches, depending on your preference.

Design innovations allow for an optimum use of space to guarantee simple sailing while retaining very comfortable sleeping areas.

The hull is infused with a PVC foam core and a vinylester barrier coat to ward off the threat of osmosis.

The hull design and the fluidity of her deck layout already make her an iconic sailing boat. Her modernity, her simplicity and her elegance already make her a new “classic.” All these design innovations allow for an optimum use of volumes to guarantee simple sailing while offering plenty of liveaboard space.
