This new cruising yacht offers beautiful living spaces designed for you to make the most of the boat inside and out.

In the three-cabin version, you’ll find a large and bright owner’s cabin with plenty of storage space and your own bathroom. Your guests will have two beautiful and spacious cabins each with their own bathroom.

In the four-cabin version, up to ten guests can be welcomed aboard the Dufour 41. This yacht is the only one on the market to offer, in the 4-cabin version, two proper forward cabins, featuring 145 cm beds and soundproofing between the two cabins.

In these two versions, the Dufour 41 is equipped with numerous storage spaces and a fore-and-aft galley, allowing you to move freely and easily around the boat.


Outdoor life takes on greater importance and meaning aboard this yacht that’s over 12 metres in length, with her extremely well-designed deck plan, easy circulation and optimised spaces for on-board comfort.


There’s no denying that this new model in the range is bathed in natural light. With around 60% more light than other models on the market, the new Dufour 41 features numerous openings to the outside that will also allow you to make the most of the environment around you.

For the Dufour shipyard, the objective was to bring greater design and robustness, yet to simplify the interior of its models and continue to use noble materials. The Dufour 41 is offered in two atmospheres, both as warm as they are bright: Europe and Boston.


The Dufour 41 boasts a large cockpit with numerous handrails for even greater safety when under way. This very large cockpit is comparable to one you’d see on a much larger yacht. You’ll be able to enjoy this well-proportioned living space with your family or friends and move around the boat with peace of mind.

In harmony with Dufour’s DNA, this large yacht has been designed and conceived to provide excellent performance under sail while offering you plenty of space. The shipyard has made it a point of honour that the boat’s handling and performance are great assets and which particularly reflect the personality of the Dufour range of yachts.

What are the advantages of a 12-metre sailing yacht?

Choosing a 12-metre sailing boat is a wise option, whether for day sailing or multi-day excursions. With sleeping accommodation in 3 to 4 cabins, the Dufour 41 luxury sailboat offers an ideal compromise between a day-boat and a cruising yacht, combining comfort and ease of handling to give an optimal sailing experience.

The advantages of an over-12-metre sailing yacht

A 12-metre sailing boat offers a good balance between size, comfort and performance. It offers a number of advantages that make it a popular choice among sailing fans:

Optimal space

The space aboard this Luca Ardizio-designed 12-metre yacht, is perfectly optimised to ensure comfort both under way and in port. With a length of 12.75 metres and a beam of 4.3 metres, the Dufour 41 can sleep up to 10 people, depending on the layout chosen.

This sailing yacht of over 12m provides enough space to accommodate friends or an entire family without compromising anyone’s essential privacy. The interior layout is designed to offer both practicality and convenience, with a completely redesigned saloon featuring plenty of storage and comfort areas. A must-have: the 3.3 m long forward cabin has a 1.65 x 2.04 m bed and a separate shower in the heads compartment.

Performance at sea

The seaworthiness of the Dufour 41 is exemplary. Her signature Dufour hull design and taut lines make for smooth, safe sailing and excellent performance, even in less favourable conditions. The boat’s handling, with its optimised deck layout, is one of the many assets much-loved by the community of Dufour owners.

What innovations are to be found aboard the Dufour 41?

Design and comfort

Opposite the saloon, the longitudinal galley has been completely redesigned. The 2.4-metre Corian worktop is separated in the middle by a console that increases the work surface while providing a place to rest. There is plenty of practical storage space. The galley even has a double fridge with a front door and there’s also locker, so you’ll have more than enough galley storage when you’re cruising.

The aft cockpit is very spacious, with a table with large leaves that that fold up to easily seat 10 guests. The plancha grill, a Dufour signature, is perfectly integrated into the design and easily accessible from the aft platform for cooking when at anchor.

The two cosy aft cabins each have an en suite bathroom, which is very useful if you’ve chosen to have two double cabins forward.

Simplified sailing

Ease of handling is another of the Dufour 41’s strong points. Thanks to the large volumes on deck and in the cockpit, as well as modern equipment, you can sail this yacht easily, even with a short-handed crew. This includes:

  • Jefa system steering wheels that are smooth and precise and effortlessly control the course
  • Fluid movement around the cockpit for all sailing manoeuvres
  • A sleek Z-Spars mast gives the boat the dynamism of a high-performance cruiser
  • Etc
