The new DUFOUR 350 Grand Large is the latest model of the Grand Large range by Dufour Yachts, representing a well detailed yacht that has been finished to the very highest standards.
Performance and maximum control
Standing within the transom area, it becomes immediately obvious that the boat boasts an extensive platform, together with the optional extra seats that can provide an additional level of comfort when steering the DUFOUR 350.
The yacht represents an upgrade on the impressive DUFOUR 350, with the addition of a number of features, many of which came about as a result of feedback from clients. For example, there is a uniquely spacious cockpit area on this 35-foot vessel.
The DUFOUR 350 reflects the product DNA that has made this range of models such a success. As you would expect, this means that hatches have been used to provide additional light to the interior of the boat. At the same time, the cockpit area has been extended, allowing the owner and guests to make the most of the outside space that is available on this yacht.
The main sail is easily controlled from the rear of the boat, ensuring guaranteed performance and maximum control, without having any negative impact on comfort levels within the cockpit. Careful thought has been given to the location of the winches too, which are perfectly positioned for maintaining control of the vessel.
Wide side decks offer enhanced safety and reflect the requirements of many yacht owners. At the front of the boat, the integrated self-tack engine is common to all of the latest DUFOUR models. It allows the size of the sail to be maximised and ensures that manoeuvres are simplified. The sail plan was designed to be efficient and avoids the need to upgrade the existing tall mast.
There is a large space available at the front of the yacht, offering the perfect position for a sunbed. In this area of the boat, there is also an anchor that is larger than that found on many other vessels of the same size. The cutting edge system that is being used has also enabled the fitting of a Code Zero sail, which can be used for closer reaching in light air, or as an alternative to a spinnaker.
The Code Zero system guarantees better performance in all weather conditions and improved safety levels. It also ensures that it’s relatively easy for an individual to sail the yacht without the need for assistance.
Modular solutions combine comfort with flexibility
Entry to the front cabin is provided via double doors, which offer an enhanced feeling of freedom and space. The sense of space becomes obvious in the lounge area, which includes two benches, one of which includes transforms into an integrated chart table. Such modular solutions combine comfort with flexibility.
The galley includes a fridge, two sinks and a fully functional oven, together with three burners. An opening port light provides ventilation while cooking and ample storage space has been provided, including within the body of the main cabin table.
Leather details have been added to remove sharp corners, making it more comfortable to move around the yacht. There are two designs available for buyers of the DUFOUR 350. You can opt to have two cabins within one head, or three cabins with one head. This offers flexibility, allowing you to choose an extended shower compartment or to take advantage of having three cabins on a boat of this size.
There is also a recognition that the amount of storage that is available is critical to clients, as is accessibility. Finally, there is free access to the Volvo engine, enabling maintenance tasks to be carried out.
