All about Dufour 31 model
Dufour 31: When navigation becomes intuitive
Built by Dufour between 1974 and 1980, the Dufour 31 is the ideal monohull for coastal and semi-offshore family cruising. This boat replaces the Arpège model. The Dufour 31 is a harmonious, low-maintenance boat, with very efficient seakeeping qualities.
The exterior features a rectangular cockpit with a tiller, two side benches and all the controls close by for easy maneuverability. Wide catwalks and high guard lines ensure maximum safety of movement on deck. Access to the transom is from the steering station and the swim platform is equipped with a retractable ladder for easy water access.
Below deck, the saloon has a generous 1.90 meters of headroom. The spaces are roomy and feature high quality materials which guarantee sturdiness and durability. Numerous portholes allow ventilation when opened and bathe the interior in natural light. The starboard galley has plenty of storage and faces the chart table. There are 2 cabins: the owner's cabin located at the bow and a portside aft cabin.
Its excellent performance ensures serene and comfortable sailing. The boat is very reactive thanks to its tiller and adapts well to all navigation conditions. With its standard sail area of 51.5 m², it can reach a cruising speed of 6-9 knots. The boat can accommodate up to 6 people.
