Dufour 405

Elected Boat of the Year 2010, produced by the Dufour Yachts shipyard, this vessel features an excellent use of space and is therefore one of the most popular sailing boats of the charter Starsail.

Never before a 11.90 m (39”) long boat had offered such a functional deck and spacious interior. This vessel was born as a cruising yacht and therefore designed especially for maximum comfort: a very large cockpit, opening stern, elegant deck house lines. Inside, the large and functional dinette is definitely the strong point of this boat: on the port side, the very spacious walled galley features an innovative position and size for the refrigerator, featuring a 180 liter capacity with both top and front opening.

An Umberto Felci design also means excellent performance. Although the main focus of this boat is comfort, the Dufour 405 is also very rewarding to sail. Battened mainsail for easy maneuverability and high speed at any point of sailing. Among the Starsail boats, Smile, our Dufour 405, even offers exciting engine performance, thanks to its 56 hp Volvo, which allows cruising speed in excess of 8 knots. Gennaker is optional.
