Dufour 530, Venus
Monohull Skippered | Length: 16,35m | Year: 2021
Making her World debut at Boot Düsseldorf, the 530 is a merger of Dufour’s Grand Large and Performance ranges.
At 16.35m length overall, she has a waterline length just under 15m to enhance speed through the water. With a maximum beam of just under 5m, the Dufour 530 offers spacious living areas and accommodation.
With a large forward galley, the saloon space is typical of the Dufour DNA, roomy, airy and with lots of natural daylight.
The aft transom area has been designed to include two access points into the cockpit from the bathing platform. Either side of the now ‘trademark’ Dufour BBQ and external galley, is the option to include retractable dinghy davits. There is ample, easily accessible stowage for vital safety equipment such as the liferaft, and the whole cockpit can be covered by a semi-permanent bimini. The new cockpit design includes a step up for secure and easy access to the wide side decks and there’s specific storage areas for all the sheets and halyards.
