2015 BOAT OF THE YEAR!
fine detail clearly affirms Dufour's ambition to fit an elegant
clientele. The layouts are designed by the best stylists, arranged and
varnished with the best solid wood. Wide and spacious dinette, sea
galley combining functionality and design, numerous closets with drawers
with a luxurious finish are standard features.
The Dufour 56 Exclusive is available in several versions.
The Dufour 56 E offers a spacious and welcoming interior. With 6'7" headroom and a choice of layouts, interior wood colour and soft goods the 56 E can be customized to your specifications.
There is a 3-cabin/3head or 4 cabin/3head version available with several choices on customizing the Master Cabin. Also available is a Captain's cabin forward on all versions.
The design of the Galley has been enhanced to move the sink closer to the stove.
The Saloon has a U-shaped settee and convertible table to port. To starboard is the L-shaped settee and an adjustable Nav Station. Two half bulkheads separate the Saloon from the Galley. One is a cabinet that will hold dishes and the other, which is aft facing and holds a popup flat screen TV. Dufour's signature wine rack in the cabin sole holds 15 bottles laying down and 10 standing up. A drawer under the settee can hold an additional 8 bottles.
The Galley forward galley is only found on our 430 GL, 460 GL, 520 GL & 56 E. The functionality and use of space has to be seen to be fully appreciated. Just forward of the salon, you find the full beam galley. The S/S sink with Corian covers has a brushed stainless single lever mixer tap and below sink storage. There is a 3-burner gas stove with oven and grill. The Refrigerator/freezer is front opening. There is a microwave oven in the starboard. hull cubby hole. There is a trash bin to port. Cabinets above and below provide plenty of storage.
The Master Cabin has a double bed with a thick mattress that has a washable cover. There are 4 opening hatches above the bed. The head is ensuite.
There are (2) hanging lockers with shelves, side top lockers along side of the hull and (2) pockets for storage below the berth.
The master head is actually divided into two totally separate spaces. The toilet area on the starboard side and the shower on the port side.
Double berth with comfortable foam mattress with washable cover. A hanging locker with shelves provides storage and there are additional top lockers along side of the hull.
Access to the head is from the saloon and the cabin.
A small crew cabin has been added in the forepeak with deck access via an overhead hatch.
Standard set up is a classic full batten main with a stack pack. In mast furling is a factory available option. If furling is a must, so we stick with our performance heritage, we would recommend doing an in boom system during commissioning.
The cockpit with available built in electric grill, additional refrigerator and sink is another fully functioning entertainment center.
