New boats 2017

2016 September 1

We run down some of the new sailboats hitting the water for 2017

Dufour 460

The new Dufour should sail well with a self-tacking jib and a proven track record of performance cruisers. But at anchor, experience seaside living with a spacious cockpit, complete outdoor galley and an expansive swim platform. The unique interior layout features a unique galley, placed forward of the saloon, allowing plenty of room to stretch out, as the saloon spans the full beam of the boat. Generous headroom and plenty of ports add to the open feel below. LOA 46’5”; Beam 14’9”; Draft 7’2”; Displ. 25,802 lbs.; Sail area 909 sq. ft., www.dufour-yachts.com. Price: $299,000
