Dufour 455

One of the most successful sailing yachts from the Dufour Yachts shipyard, and definitely one of the most sought after for holiday boat charter, the Dufour 455 is 13.75 m (45’1”) long with a 4.20 m (14”) beam. Very spacious both inside and on deck, we believe that the strength of this boat lies in its comfort, although not at the expense of performance, as with all boats designed by Umberto Felci. And because we strive to offer charter boats with good performance, we have equipped our Emotion with an oversized mast. Gennaker is optional.

Emotion’s configuration is 4 cabins and 2 heads, although the latter actually consist of 3 quarters. The bow head is in fact split into 2 separate areas: on the port side is the one with the WC and one shower, on the starboard side the one with the sink and another shower. All cabins have double beds (very large at the bow and obviously smaller but comfortable astern). The dinette size is quite impressive, with walled galley and saloon on the port side and chart table to starboard.

What we probably like the most about this vessel is her deck layout: short deck house, large sundeck, very spacious cockpit, and aft deck with a clever compartment for the life raft are, in our opinion, the boat’s strong points. Gennaker is optional.
