Dufour - 525 Grand Large

Stand at the bow of the Dufour 525 looking aft as the boat loads up hard on the wind, and you'll appreciate what the clean-lines movement in yacht design has been about. On deck, this Dufour is elegantly simple in ways that are a joy not merely to look at but also to use.

Additional Description

The accommodation designed by Patrick Ros?o is typified by the appropriate spaces: no compromise on the comfort of the bunks, the volume of the hanging lockers, ease of movement. The configurations of the 8 layout versions offered can suit every sailing program. The nautical spirit of the accommodation is apparent right from the companionway, with to starboard, a large U-shaped saloon, allowing the crew to take their meals without blocking the passage forward. A facing bench seat with fold-down back and built-in stowage seats two extra diners. The galley is offered in 2 versions: L-shaped or in-line, according to each owner?s requirements. A skipper?s cabin (optional) can be substituted for the sail-locker forward. Although very modern, Patrick Ros?o?s styling does not play the fashion ticket. The Dufour 525 interior is sober, nautical, and welcoming, with ergonomics well-designed for both stopovers in port and fine sailing trips.

Additional Description

  • The sandwich design of the hull makes for very good thermal and acoustic insulation.
  • The lamination of the network of ribs reinforces the hull?s solidity and in this way makes allows very good spreading of the forces from the keel and rigging.
  • The inner molding liner with its perfect surface finish produces additional stowage space under the floors and makes for easier cleaning.
  • Prevention of osmosis on hull with the use of a NPG gelcoat.

Additional Description

  • The deck is produced by infusion for an optimum rigidity/lightness ratio along with excellent thermal and acoustic insulation, and has an inner moulding liner for a perfect finish.
  • All working and traffic areas have a ?diamond-point? nonslip surface.
  • Localized monolithic reinforcing areas are included under deck fittings (winches, tracks, chain-plates, cleats).
  • To increase the boat?s durability, Dufour?s team of engineers have opted to minimize wooden structural inserts beneath deck fittings.

Helm System

  • 2 leather-sleeved stainless steering wheels, 1100 mm in diameter.
  • The steering wheels are easily controllable from a seated position on the helmsman?s side bench seats.
  • Transmission system via chain and cranks connected to the rudder quadrant.
  • The rudder blade is semi-elliptical in shape ? taking advantage of the latest research in hydrodynamics ? and filled with very high density closed-cell epoxy foam to avoid any ingress of water.
  • The solid stainless rudder stock is mounted on selfaligning bearings for greater precision and lightness of the helm whatever the wind conditions.
  • Stainless steel emergency tiller
  • Access deck-plate for emergency tiller.

Keel

  • For maximum life, keels undergo factory treatment before fitting (anti-corrosion and improved finish thanks to epoxy-based paint and coatings).
  • The keel with a large sole-plate is fixed to the boat with a system of stainless backing-plate and bolts.
  • The (bulb) keel is in cast iron: 2.00 m.
  • As an option, a long, mixed cast-iron/lead ballast keel with a draught of 2.35 m allows superior (stiff, close-winded) performance, whilst maintaining an acceptable draught, lowering the centre of gravity, and increasing the boat?s stability
