DUFOUR'S SUPERB FLAGSHIP YACHTS FOR GENUINE SENSATIONS
Once more, Dufour combines comfort with performance in the design of the new 61. The result is pure harmony to enhance your incomparable sailing experience.

The Dufour 61 was designed and built in the tradition of the Dufour range. Developed to provide simple instinctive sailing, exciting and efficient, this new model combines luxury and simplicity.

HIGHLIGHTS
The Dufour 61 offers two different galley layouts, while maintaining spacious living space and enjoying plenty of natural day light. The layout with forward galley interconnects the different living spaces. The longitudinal port galley integrates very smart fittings and gives the feeling of being in a Chef’s kitchen... This layout creates room for a large warm saloon.

The master cabin, as spacious as it is luxurious, offers privileged private space for relaxation on the boat. You will appreciate the large wardrobe and numerous cupboards for infinite possibilities of storage.

FAMILY FEELING
The construction and layout of the deck have been devised to guarantee the boat’s robustness and safety on board, along with comfort on deck. The bulwark is directly integrated in the boat’s hull. And the coach roof has been designed to leave room for a broad foredeck enhancing both style and comfort.

GUARANTEED SENSATIONS
The deck layout has been designed to facilitate every manoeuvre, thereby enhancing your sailing experience. Large windows and portholes provide natural light and the signature of our new Dufour line.

The Dufour 61’s design and layout offer great circulation on deck thanks to its cockpit and bimini top specially designed for this purpose: a perfect blend of performance and comfort.

Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 54By Zuzana Prochazka

Beneteau saw an opportunity to add a little thrill to any cruising adventure, so they took the hull of the First 53 racer (introduced just last year), and with a few fashionable changes, created the Oceanis Yacht 54, the new entry-level of Beneteau’s swanky Oceanis Yacht line. The result is a performance cruiser that sails like a witch and looks like a grande dame.

Design

Roberto Biscontini is the naval architect and Lorenzo Argento created the details of the exterior and interior design.

The new year was barely underway when all 50 available slips were already reserved. No wonder the addition of member and visitor slips is already planned for the 2022 season – the 2021 count is up to 62 power and sail already. At the moment, the Riverest Marina offers boaters a stop where they can launch their boat...

One of our Canadian Yachting contributors, Denise Miller, had shared the article on my social media and a young man reached out and asked if she could connect him with the owners of the boat, Dave and Barb. Denise leapt into action and Dave and Barb were thrilled. They concocted a plan that the young lady, Mia, thought she was coming to model for a sales brochure for Dave to do charter tours.
