The Dufour Classic 50 is a fast cruising yacht designed by Beret and Racoupeau and constructed by Dufour Yachts. She will impress lovers of large traditional yachts. Her majestic silhouette, fine under-body and immense deck area, beamy cockpit, and large steering wheel gives her the looks of a big ocean racer. The Classic 50 design proudly crowns the Classic range. Inside, accommodations are designed for easy circulation throughout the boat and to preserve intimacy for the passengers. Two large double cabins aft and an extra large owners vee cabin forward as well as twin storage cabins forward. All cabins are accessed by individual cabin doors. Three head compartments and an independent shower provide appreciable comfort with a large crew. The Classic 50, with her oversized fuel and water tanks, improved handling, and unequalled control, predestine the Dufour 50 Classic for long passages.
This vessel regularly makes 170nm plus a day in regular trade wind conditions and has seen many 190 plus days, distance made good. In addition the vessel is an exceptional light wind performer.
She is currently owned by an experienced cruising yachtsman as his 4th cruising yacht and purchased in 2011, and outfitted and upgraded to suit long distance blue water cruising. All equipment has been chosen with quality and simplicity as the guiding factors to ensure longevity and ease of maintenance. The extensive storage space combined with large refrigerator and high capacity watermaker and inbuilt washing machine ensures the ability to stay remote from supplies while addressing the hassles of water supply and doing laundry. The interior was customised in 2015 to create a very large owners vee berth with extensive storage plus a separate laundry with washing machine and separate storeroom.
