Dufour 500 Arch

A stylish cockpit arch that compliments the sleek lines of this modern yacht. Outfitted with integrated davits, lifting a dinghy has never been so easy and secure. Future accommodations have been made for up to 600W of solar power. The client also requested extended sternrails which offered more mounting space, better handholds from the swimplatform and a nice back rest when at the helm.

Maybe Dufour didn’t literally break the mold with the GL500, but it certainly busted many of the constraints of old-world thinking with its “what if” approach. Dufour has echoed Apple’s old tag line, “Think Different,” and deserves credit for doing so. It’s also good to see that, despite all the focus on innovation, someone still remembered this big machine needed to sail and take care of its crew—something it does very well.
