The Dufour 48 Catamarans presents a perfect balance with the deck plan, the cockpit space, roof, and foredeck divided into 1/3 of the total length. The large proportion of the roof differs from the models of the category and offer the thought of a very wide space of the living room area. Indeed, it is a testimony of a balanced project in terms of exterior and interior space, developed to offer the greatest comfort in all seasons. At the front, there are two outstanding sunbathing areas, separated by a large storage box and the anchor well. The side decks are spacious and secured by hull bulwarks along the entire length. At the cockpit level, there are two steps, one on the port side and one on the starboard side, offering access to the fly-bridge.
The Dufour 48 Catamarans fly-bridge is a key element of this project. Elaborated as a sec-ond cockpit, it expands consid-erably the living space outside. Traffic is ideal with an access from two stairs – through the cockpit from starboard, and the sidedecks from port.He is equipted with a low table and surrounded by large seats and a wide sunbathing area. It also features the helm sta-tion…
Located on the fly bridge, the helm station offers an absolute advantage in terms of visibility. The large console inspired by the superyachts, integrates all the equipment in a very ergonomic layout. The three mainsail winches, jib and gennaker are easy to reach. The helmsman also benefits from an adjustable seat and a bimini, available in both canvas or rigid.
