The Yacht Sales Co will showcase the award-winning Dufour 470 at the Melbourne International Boat Show from 20 – 23 October.

The new model is expected to draw strong interest at the event, which will be held at New Quay in Docklands. The 47-footer has been acclaimed for its stunning design that delivers high-performance thrills.

The Dufour 470 is available in three versions, including an Easy version intended for owners and charterers in search of simplicity and comfort with an elegant layout that allows great mobility.  The Ocean version suits owners who wish for a more traditional movement plan with the sheets positioned on the coamings and the halyard and mainsail trolley handlings near the helm station. The Dufour 470 Performance version is ideal for those who love exhilarating performance and speed; with its six high-quality winches, clew at the rear of the cockpit, and its “Performance” equipment, this model is transformed into a pure racer.

Design innovations in the interior of the Dufour 470 allow for optimal use of space to guarantee simple sailing while retaining very comfortable sleeping areas.

The Yacht Sales Co’s sales and business development manager Bob Vinks said the model has already proven very popular with Australian buyers since its launch in 2021.

“Dufour Yachts have an exceptional reputation throughout the world, and this new model has captured the attention of buyers as it delivers stunning design and superb performance in one perfect package,” Bob said.

“There is certainly a marked increase in interest in the Dufour yachts throughout the Asia Pacific as yachting enthusiasts recognise the brand’s outstanding innovation, performance and sophisticated aesthetics,” he said.

The Melbourne International Boat Show will celebrate its 60th year with free entry to visitors who can enjoy an extensive selection of yachts and boating products on display.

The Yacht Sales Co will also have representatives of Absolute Yachts and Tesoro Yachts at the show to provide information about these premium brands.
