About this Sailboat:
Here for your consideration is the Flagship of the Dufour range of performance cruising yachts, the award-winning Dufour 525. Voted Best Full Size Cruiser for 2009 by Cruising World magazine, the Dufour 525 manages to blend incredible room down below and still retain a sleek profile and totally uncluttered deck for safe offshore voyaging.
Her sailing performance is outstanding in light, medium or heavy air. She simply works in all conditions thanks to the Italian hull design by Umberto Felci and the deck and interior expertise of Patrick Roseo.
