53' Dufour 2023


Preliminary spec is available: Arriving Summer 2022

The Dufour 530 is a vibrant reflection of our extensive know- how. Developed on the architectural premise of the Performance range, its authentic racer hull has been designed with exhilaration in mind. Comfort is key when cruising so we have combined the main Grand Large features with an open, secure, fully equipped deck.

And to top it off, breathtaking innovations too. Three completely distinct manoeuvring layouts, a cockpit with all-new features, a revolutionary bimini concept and beautiful aesthetics.

A spacious, elegant sailing yacht finished down to the last detail. The ultimate distinction.
