Breaking away from traditional designs, the Dufour 44 boasts a contemporary hull with a generous 4.45-meter beam, showcasing an extended beam for improved sailing performance.

Internally, Luca Ardizio's design transforms the Dufour 44's interior into a modern and refined space, radiating warmth and comfort. From the elegantly appointed cabins to the light-filled living areas, every detail has been meticulously crafted to ensure total relaxation on the water. The addition of an easily accessible bathing platform, a new feature from Dufour, complements the spacious cockpit, enhancing the overall cruising experience.
