Exceptional design defines space, delivering a unique feel of freedom and luxury.


The new DUFOUR 500 marks a major step in the development of the Grand’Large range. Its design of exception redistributes space, offering to everyone a unique feeling of freedom on-board.


With a rare elegance, the wide rear cockpit is distinguished by its organization of two separated spaces: a navigation area and a relaxation area. These facilities allow anyone to take full advantage of the cruise regardless of whether their expectation is performance or relaxation.

Cleared of obstructions with integrated storage and great modularity, the deck offers an unlimited open space for both sailing and entertaining.

With clean lines, unique design and innovative equipment, the 500 Grand’Large offers absolute comfort until now reserved only for luxury. It is the perfect synthesis of Grand’Large philosophy and the requirement of performance sailing on the water.
