Cervetti 48 (Dufour 48)


Sail Performance





The Dufour 48 Catamarans presents a perfect balance with the deck plan, the cockpit space, roof and foredeck divided into 1/3 of the total length.

The large proportion of the roof differs from the models of the category and offer the thought of a very wide space of the living room area. Indeed, it is a testimony of a balanced project in terms of exterior and interior space, developed to offer the greatest comfort in all seasons.

At the front, there are two outstanding sunbathing areas, separated by a large storage box and the anchor well. The side decks are spacious, and secured by hull bulwarks along the entire length. At the cockpit level, there are two steps, one on the port side and one on the starboard side, offering access to the flybridge.

The Dufour 48 Catamarans flybridge is a key element of this project. Elaborated as a second cockpit, it considerably expands the living space outside.Traffic is ideal with an access from two stairs - through the cockpit from starboard, and the side decks from port. He is equipped with a low table and surrounded by large seats and a wide sunbathing area.

Located on the flybridge, the helm station offers an absolute advantage in terms of visibility. The large console inspired by the superyachts, integrates all the equipment in a very ergonomic layout. The three mainsail winches, jib and gennaker are easy to reach. The helmsman also benefits from an adjustable seat and a bimini, available in both canvas or rigid.

The cockpit space of the Dufour 48 is similar to a 50 feet boat or more. Indeed, the 8-meter boat’s width provides excellent space distribution and ideal traffic on board. There is a large table for 8 people, multiple seating and relaxation areas, as well as the famous plancha created by Dufour Yachts. The various portholes provide an incredible natural light in the rear cabins. The large window door opens completely for full communication with the lounge area.

The Dufour Catamarans 48 has been designed to satisfy the requirements of both owners and renters wishing to live on board throughout the year.

At the front, there is the office space - a chart table, equipped with a repeater screen and an autopilot control with joystick, to control the boat from the inside. The sofa space - dining table, can be modulated in 3 positions - low table, dining table - double bed, with the seats smartly stored in the central furniture to keep the space as clear as possible.
