All her sail controls lead back to the after part of the cockpit. The mainsheet of the new Dufour 61 is on an arch which allows a better sheeting angle and is also clear of the cockpit. She has a number of sail configurations including the option of the in-mast furling mainsail and self-tacking jib.

Her many advantages include dinghy garage, large cockpit, loads of sunbathing areas, two cockpit tables and big windows giving loads of light down below.

The Dufour 61 has a number of layout options below including the forward galley which Dufour have perfected with the option of an aft galley. Dufour has made an extra effort to make the boat feel even more luxurious than previous models adding extra soft furnishings and more upmarket fittings. The master cabin offers privileged private space for relaxation on the boat.
