General Details

The Dufour 560 has been designed around a very balanced hull shape. The powerful aft sections, low wetted surface area, and efficient keel & rudder with 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 forward incline to the boom are all examples of a sail plan that is derived from solo sailor open 60, where ease of handling in race mode are mandatory

Aesthetically, the Dufour 560 exudes modern elegance, luxury, and performance with its sweeping lines and uniquely designed top fixed hatch, with angled corners and horizontal sleek side windows. The GL 560 delivers a striking visual statement.

The deck spaces are well thought out with wide side decks and integrated bulwark, guaranteeing unobstructed passageways for maximum safety during navigation. An easy accessible tender garage is well integrated in the aft working area to fit a 10ft tender as well as having a large and comfortable access to the water.

Below deck, the spacious GL 560 features meticulous craftsmanship and modern, yet functional design elements. The interior has been designed around customer needs with a series of meetings in the yard between Dufour owners, dealers and the internal design team. The result is a yacht with a unique interior layout, with a special focus on the saloon area.
