The Dufour 560 Grand Large flagship sets the highest standards when it comes to aesthetic appeal. The yacht exudes modern elegance, luxury and dynamism with its sweeping lines and uniquely DUFOUR top fixed hatch, with angled corners and horizontal sleek side windows, the GL 560 delivers a striking visual statement.
Very balanced hull shape, with powerful aft sections, low wetted surface area and a very effective set of appendages (keel & rudder). The high ballast ratio and increased form stability of the hull enables the boat to support a powerful sailplan without sacrificing cruising comfort and safety. The sail plan has been designed to guarantee maximum performance with minimum effort. The fixed bowsprit, the self tacking jib and the boom inclined forward are all examples of a sail plan that is derived from solo sailor open 60, where ease of handling in race mode are mandatory.
