Established for more than 50 years in the Rochelais region, the Dufour site has a strong local footprint bathed in history and represents one of the largest employers in the region.
With its production capacity of 18,000 m² and its 420 full-time employees, Dufour is one of the largest nautical projects in the world.
The Dufour Yachts Design Office works in close collaboration with Umberto Felci, one of the greatest naval architects in the world, to design hulls of exceptional quality. Dufour sailboats, the fruit of their joint efforts, are today acclaimed by sailors around the world for their elegance, performance and comfort.
100% French made, all Dufour Yachts are imagined, designed and produced in La Rochelle, at the company's head office. With nearly 400 models manufactured per year, Dufour Yachts fully controls its production chain, from the project to the finished product, including assembly and carpentry.
