New 2021 Dufour 48 Catamaran with four double cabins, five heads and a separate skipper cabin. Available for delivery in Sydney September 2021

Formerly owned by Dufour Yachts, the company was sold to the Fozzy Group in 2020, a large corporation that also owns Under the Heavens Sailing Cruises in Croatia.

Designed by revered and world-famous naval architect, Umberto Felci, in 2019 the Dufour 48 Catamaran presents a perfectly balanced deck plan, with the cockpit space, upper deck and foredeck divided into 1/3 of the total length.

Felci continues to oversee the production of the catamarans since being sold to the new owners.

The contemporary design ensures a combination of style and performance to make for the perfect cruising vessel. The dual hulls have been rigorously tested for their aqua-dynamics for a smooth and efficient cleave through the water. The main mast has been placed towards the stern to allow for larger headsails, and the boom is more angled than in most monohulls. The self-tacking jib combined with the mainsail creates a total sail area of over 120m2.

The Dufour 48 Catamaran has beautiful outdoor living areas, designed specifically for comfort and entertaining. The huge flybridge with stair access from both starboard and port sides provides a separate area to relax and lie in the sun. At the back, there is a wide L-shaped sofa, and in front of the helm, you'll find a double sunbed. The central helm station is compact with winches nearby so that the catamaran can be operated entirely from the flybridge. Visibility around the boat is excellent and movement is made easy by the removal of unnecessary obstructions which also provides for more space.

At the back of the boat, there are wide stairs from the water level onto the cockpit and side decks. The spacious layout gives the impression of a bigger catamaran and the cockpit is an extension of the living room - a lounge area to starboard and seating for eight to port. There are three options for dinghy lifting: standard pulleys, electric winch or a hydraulic platform.

At the bow, there are two outstanding sunbathing areas, separated by a large storage box and the anchor stowage. The side decks are spacious and secured by hull bulwarks along the entire length.

The Dufour 48 Catamaran has a 360-degree loft-style saloon connected to the cockpit. On the port side, you have a fully equipped galley with lots of storage space at the back, an island in the middle and an adjustable L-shaped sofa in the front. At the starboard front corner, there is an office space that functions as navigation or workstation. A digital navigation screen and autopilot controls make it possible to operate the catamaran from inside the cabin, and the sliding glass doors ensure that you can completely seal the cabin, as well as enjoy plenty of natural light and fresh air. All aspects of the interior have been designed with both luxury and practicality in mind, making it an incredible escape for guests onboard.

To guarantee maximum privacy there is separate access via stairs to the owner's suite in the port hull and stairs to each guest cabin in the starboard hull. Each cabin includes its own bathroom with a separate shower, as well as many closets and storage areas. Ventilation and brightness are also maximised with many opening ports and windows. A separate head for daytime use is also provided in the starboard hull.
