The Dufour 50 Classic will impress lovers of large traditional yachts. Her majestic silhouette, fine underbody, and immense deck area (almost flush), beamy cockpit, and large steering wheel gives her the looks of a big ocean racer. The Classic 50 design from the board of La Rochelle architect Jean Berret proudly crowns the Classic range. Inside, accommodations are designed for easy circulation throughout the boat and to preserve intimacy for the passengers. Two large double cabins aft and three cabins forward are separated by a passageway, and all rooms are accessed by individual cabin doors. Three head compartments and an independent shower provide appreciable comfort with a large crew. The Classic 50 - with her oversized fuel and water tanks, improved handling, and unequaled control - predestine the Dufour 50 Classic for long passages.
