Dufour 36 Classic
The midships galley of the Dufour 36 Classic opens up the aft area for a cabin without compromising the cockpit and its storage capacity. The 36 Classic gets bonus mileage from this layout by situating the head compartment and a third hanging locker in the area that would otherwise be usurped by the galley. Placing the galley amidships means the least boat-yawing effect. The Dufour 36 Classic keeps the strong looks of the Dufour classic line with its delicate sheer and balanced, uncropped ends. Dufour incorporated headroom of six feet, two inches. The diagonal berth in the forward cabin is a true double and incorporates a nice settee.
Michel Dufour, an engineer with a love of sailing, founded his shipyard in La Rochelle, France back in 1964. He owes his success to his keen intuition. He was convinced that new technologies and new materials would transformsailing. But sailing has always continued to be embodiment of the pioneering, adventurous spirit; the pinnacle of pleasure.
