Chosen boat of the year in 2003 in France, the Dufour 40 E was designed by the naval architect and Italian sailor Umberto Felci who also drew the Grand Soleil 44 and the successful Dufour 34 and Dufour 44. The responsibility of the deck plan and interior design Is by Patrick Rosseo. The result is a boat with a very pleasant aesthetic, a safe and comfortable navigation, and capable at the same time of obtaining some success in regata. This 12-meter sailboat combines innovation and great technicality. The Dufour 40E Performance offers a high level of speed and sensations thanks to its live regatta and keel and tiller designs adapted to sports navigation. In addition, it has a spacious and ergonomic cockpit, with a large wheel and winches within reach of the helmsman, to provide the latter with optimal visibility. Likewise, Umberto Felci has decided to favor the centering of the weights and the descent of the center of gravity to give the sails a better rigidity.
With a spacious and extremely comfortable distribution, the Dufour 40E Performance fits both the race and the fast cruiser with a reduced crew. Its volumes are designed to facilitate circulation throughout the common room, while its numerous porches and deck hatches offer optimum light and ventilation.
The Dufour 40E Performance is an exceptional sailboat ahead of its time, offering a maximum of space and comfort, thus increasing the sensations of pleasure.
Designed to respect the Dufour tradition, the Dufour range offers remarkably polished sailing boats at extremely competitive prices. Well thought-out interiors, high specifications with regard to the materials used as well as the choice of deck fittings and navigation equipment.
