The Dufour 530 is a real live aboard cruiser, easy to sail short-handed, and this is the 3 cabin owner version of this spectacular yacht. When the anchor comes up the yacht has plenty of sail power with a fully battened main and self-tacking jib. When conditions are right there is a roller furling gennaker on the forestay to liven things up!
When there is no wind at all there is 110 HP of diesel power under the cockpit and a folding propeller to push you along.
The main galley across the front of the saloon is unique with storage on one side and food preparation tops on the other. The second galley and fridge in the transom, also unique, means the outdoor BBQ involves everyone.
Below decks, the master cabin forward has the dimensions of a small apartment and of course, it has private en-suite facilities with a separate shower. The toilets are electric and the whole yacht is air-conditioned.
In the first of the three years of the management contract the yacht will be based in Marmaris in Turkey and in the second she’ll operate in Croatia – Montenegro and in the third Italy and Spain.
