Dufour 48 Cat - The renowned French shipyard goes catamaran and we are delighted having secured already one unit of the Dufour 48 Cat for charter exclusively available in Croatia from season 2019 onward!

Exciting news, or what? We were thrilled as well and are glad to share some first exclusive news about the new Dufour 48 sailing catamarans. Our guests always appreciated the design and performance of Dufour sailing yachts for rent. With a range of boats from 30-63 feet, the successful Grand Large and Exclusive range of charter yachts have both proofed remarkable sailing capabilities including bluewater cruising capabilities without compromises to comfort. As one of the first shipyards Dufour launched their innovative external galleys comprising BBQ, sinks and refrigerators integrated into the cockpit table to put the outdoor living space to the fore. With this know-how and experience, with the key attributes of building sporty yachts with plenty of luxurious amenities, it was a logical step to fulfill the demand launching a Dufour sailing catamaran.

With the knowledge using most modern advanced building processes, Dufour teamed up with their longterm collaborator Umberto Felci of Felci Yachts to design the Dufour 48 Cat. The aim was to conceive a perfect balance between exterior and interior space. The result: A complete sailing catamaran perfect for charter raising the bar for other below-50-footers currently on the market.

A feature most of our charter guest appreciate is a large flybridge, as it is a convenient upper deck for socializing, relaxing, sunbathing or navigation enjoying panoramic sew views. The Dufour 48 Cat for charter has a well-appointed flybridge which is accessible either from the side deck (port side) or the cockpit (starboard) and boasts plenty of space for sun worshippers. A bimini will offer shade and the upscaled helm station will have an own skipper's hardtop with latest navigations systems and all winches on hand for short-handed sailing pleasure. A large table will invite to drinks and snacks and the large lounging area with sunbathing areas on the flybridge will be able to accommodate easily more than the 12 guests this beautiful catamaran will be registered for.

Charter catamaran Dufour 48 comes with a spacious cockpit comprising a large table for alfresco dining, several settees as well as a BBQ grill ordered for our exclusive hull joining our fleet in 2019. A nice feature known from larger sailing catamarans is the electric aft bathing platform measuring a length of 3.80m. With tender davits integrated into the catamaran's structure, the electric platform will be ideal to launch a dinghy safely, but will also be appreciated as an extended private beach on sea level. 

Dufour 48 Catamaran for charter in Croatia is not just a pretty face. Comfort and functionality are the leitmotiv inside featuring a modular dinette converting into dining or day-mode, a fully equipped galley (let us surprise you with appliances we have ordered) and charter table with latest instruments and autopilot control. With the clever space management and only three-stairs-access to cabins and day head, with separate showers and toilets for all guest cabins as well as the large hatches for ventilation and natural light, the same attention to the interior design has been paid to the striking exterior lines of Dufour 48 Cat.
