Balance between inside and outside space

The Dufour Catamarans 48 presents a perfectly balanced deck plan, with the cockpit space, roof and foredeck divided into 1/3 of the total length. The proportion of the roof differs from the models of the category and offers the concept of an exterior living area. The unique feature represents achievement of the intended balance between interior and exterior spaces conceived to offer the greatest comfort in all seasons.

A "Super Yachts" helm station

Located on the flybridge, the helm station offers an absolute advantage in terms of visibility. The large console inspired by super yachts, integrates all the equipments in a very ergonomic layout. Winches for the mainsail, jib and the gennaker are all within easy reach. The helmsman also benefits from an adjustable seat and a bimini, available in traditional canvas or study hardtop.

 

The flybridge by Dufour

The Dufour Catamarans 48 flybridge is the key element of this project. Envisioned as a second cockpit, it expands considerably the living space outside. Traffic flow is optimized with access from provided stairs on both sides - through the cockpit from starboard and the side-decks from port. The space is equipped with a low table and surrounded by large seats and a wide sunbathing area. It also features a fully equipped helm station.

A functional cockpit as an extension of the living room

Indeed the 8 meter width provides excellent space distribution and ideal traffic flow on board The dining table is large enough to accommodate  up to 8 and is complimented by multiple seating and relaxation areas.The famous Dufour Plancha, a trademark feature of the brand is well integrated.
