New 2022 Dufour 32 – an accessible cruiser yacht from an iconic brand

Dufour 32

Nov 30, 2021

The new Dufour 32 has been developed in the same spirit as all the latest models in the Dufour range; to be a sporty, innovative yacht that is easy to handle, both with a crew and single-handed.

Like her predecessor, she offers excellent seakeeping performance. All the spaces have been completely redesigned to create a volume rarely seen on a yacht of this size and, above all, a multitude of playful and intelligent uses.

An innovative deck plan

For the first time on a 32-foot sailboat, you can now enjoy an aft sunbathing area… sheltered by a fabric shade that can be adjusted in moments.

The inflatable and removable aft door of the cockpit folds down to complete this large friendly space, offering you the comfort of a much bigger yacht.

Constantly seeking to offer the greatest possible amount of exterior space, there’s now a tiller which folds up, allowing you to take advantage of this space yet guaranteeing you incomparable smoothness of helm and manoeuvrability at any moment.

Remarkable sporty performance

On the Performance version, enjoy a movable mainsheet: either from the cockpit sole or up on the coachroof, depending on the type of sailing you’re doing.

On the standard version, to guarantee comfortable sailing, all sailing manoeuvres and the mainsheet traveller are on the coachroof.

Interior: a warm and well-thought-out space

Down below, the Dufour 32 is very spacious and has large deck windows that guarantee a pleasant living area at any time of day.

Unfold the central table and you create a large sleeping area, not to mention the 2 independent cabins. Three different finishes are available: Europe, Boston or Millenium. For this new Dufour model that is updating all the classics, the Millennium version is recommended!

Even in the event of an onboard power failure, a Ritchie Navigation SuperSport Helmsman SS-1002 magnetic compass still works.
