Dufour 34 Performance

All about Dufour 34 Performance version


At Dufour, a Charente shipyard specialising in cruising yachts, they've kept things simple since the mid-2000s: For cruising, there are GLs (Grand Large) and for racing, there are Performance yachts.


The Dufour 34 Performance, launched in 2008, is a sports yacht. 65 m2 of sail area upwind reefed to 34 feet is testament to that fact. But the Dufour 34 E Performance is far from being a small, stiff and uncomfortable brute (10.60m long and 3.60m wide, 5,300 kg empty weight).


As for the style, you can feel every pencil stroke from the architect Umberto Felci in the slender bow, the sloping roof, and the wide stern. This Performance version can be fitted with a "Performance pack", a regatta-style pack, which features a higher mast than its GL cousin, dyneema sheets, a deeper bulbous keel, genoa haul-out adjustment from the cockpit, a backstay with a tackle and a folding propeller. You could get this version without sails which meant you could adapt your rig to suit what you wanted the boat for. A real racer!


Inside, it has a classic layout with two cabins, a galley, a saloon and a shower room. We'd like to give the chart table a special shoutout; it was a real shame it disappeared from the current line. A Volvo Penta engine on a saildrive of 19 HP finishes off the boat's equipment by making it sufficiently powerful to free itself from a tidal current with the help of the engine.

Our advice for buying your future boat



Becoming a boat owner is a wonderful dream come true.

Once you've found the boat model that meets all of your criteria, all you need to do is message the seller directly from the listing.



How to transport your boat?



Remember to organize the transport of your boat to its new home. If it is a small boat, you can manage the transport yourself by purchasing a suitable trailer.

The seller of the boat can help you with the transport arrangements for the boat.
