After the recent announcement of the new Dufour 390 Grand Large, Dufour Yachts keeps innovating and surprising the nautic industry with the launch of a second Grand Large Unit for 2019, the Dufour 430 Grand Large. The Dufour 430 also completes, without replacing, the actual models of the Dufour Grand Large range composed by D310 – D360 – D382 – D390 – D412 – D430 – D460 – D520. The D430 is a brand new project, with a new hull generation, a new roof design, and the integration of high-end equipment and new onboard technology. The complementary and flexible interior layouts options, as well adapted to the owners market as to the charters market, fits perfectly to the range.
(Vancouver, BC) — The concept and engineering phases have been completed, and now the development of the NAUTITECH 47 POWER is entering a new phase. In BAVARIA CATAMARANS’ shipyard in Rochefort, France, construction now begins on the catamaran, which is 14 metres long and travels at speeds of up 22 knots.
The clear lines and dynamic design reveal the powerful elegance of this catamaran. With a top speed of 22 knots, this catamaran doesn’t just have powerful acceleration, its cruising range of 1000 miles at a speed of nearly 9 knots is also testimony to its endurance. And whether on or below the deck, there is plenty of room for luxury and relaxation.
Sunsets on board are best enjoyed on the foredeck; that’s where one finds an inviting sofa and table with plenty of space for lounging.
The stern of the has multiple uses. The lifting platform between the hulls can be used as a Tenderlift or as a bathing paradise. It easily lifts a Williams Minijet 280 out of the water. In its central position, it links the two hulls to form a flat space which becomes a wonderful area for sunbathing right next to the water. When the platform is completely lowered into the water: voila – you have your own beach in the shallow water.
The day at sea is best spent on the generous flybridge. Enjoy the perfect view of as it gently swishes over the sea. With a bimini or a hardtop offering protection, the slipstream is there to be enjoyed and life can be lived to the full. A barbeque and a wet bar are also at the ready on the flybridge.
Meals are best served at the long dining table in the large cockpit with direct access to the saloon. At BAVARIA CATAMARANS, we call this tried and tested room layout the ‘OPEN concept’. With this clever layout, cockpit and saloon melt into one living space. The perfectly equipped pantry, the exclusive lounge area in the saloon and the generous cockpit all give the impression of a luxurious penthouse apartment.
Driving pleasure is provided by two Volvo Penta D4 motors each with 225 hp. The balance of power and efficiency are particularly impressive: travelling up to 22 knots. Take comfort in long-distance cruising of 1000 miles without stopping.
The NAUTITECH 47 POWER will be unveiled at European boat shows in early 2018.
Wonder what is hiding under the cover? Hint: it’s French and it’s 56′ long and it’s on the way to us on the West Coast of Canada. Oo la la!
