Big enough to make you feel right at home on the water, the Dufour 500 Grand Large (GL) is an impressive sailing yacht. Combining contemporary clean design with state-of-the-art construction techniques, you can expect style and performance. Up in the cockpit there are helming stations port and starboard, a pair of settees (one folds out to a sunbed), a drop-leaf dining table with sink and fridge, and a sizeable drop transom that acts as both an easy access way and a bathing platform. Make your way inside and you’ll find port and starboard side sofa arrangements (one joined by a large dining table to seat 12, the other by a chart table) a moveable centreline bench, and a very efficient galley with all the storage and gadgets you’ll need (including a coffee machine). Plenty of light pours in from windows above and to the sides. This part of the Dufour 500 GL certainly does feel like home-from-home – and head height maxes at 6ft 7in. She also has five double cabins, each with queen-size beds, and three bathrooms – the saloon sofas convert for extra sleeping space. What are you waiting for?
