Plan drawing of the Dufour Grand Large 390
Their announcement in spring 2018 caused a big surprise: never before has a manufacturer dared to buy a tourer eleven meters in length in extension versions with up to three separate cabins and three bathrooms. Even if only intended as a variant and only for use in the charter business: So much accommodation in a ship of this size is new.
The YACHT was provided with the brand new construction number 1 in the standard version with three cabins and two wet rooms for a test after the initial presentation at the trade fairs in Cannes and Genu. The ship - finished at the very last minute - impressed in the test with many innovative and beautifully implemented details, but the finishing did not yet consistently meet the good standards known from Dufour. In addition, there were technical problems that impaired the sailing properties. A test under difficult conditions.
The test report for the new Dufour Grand Large 390 is available for reading in YACHT, issue no. 23/2018. The booklet is available in the DK shop, or you can download the test directly from the link below
