Dufour 405: A Mini Review
On the heels of success in last year's BOTY competition, Dufour is back with another solid cruising boat. With genoa winches with reach of the helm and all controls led aft she is well suited for short handed sailing yet has a large cockpit that can handle a crowd with excellent access between the twin wheels to the drop down transom/bathing platform. Below, the two cabin version has the galley abeam the companionway with a huge storage locker aft and seating opposite the salon table. The three cabin version moves the galley forward, allowing for three generous double bunks.
