Dufour 310 Grand Large

Dufour’s smallest boat is a simple, fast cruiser with a self-tacking jib and twin wheels and rudders. It was designed with shorthanded sailing in mind. The 310 can stand upright on its optional shoal-draft keel, while the standard high-aspect keel gives good upwind performance. The boat has two oak-detailed cabins. LOA 31’6”; Beam 10’8”; Draft 6’2”; Displ. 11,000 lbs.; Price $132,000; www.dufour-yachts.com
