Interior & Cabins
The interior space onboard has been designed to combine a welcoming ambience with a modern layout. The inside area has a luxurious, yet natural touch due to the solid wood used in its design. It also includes a forward galley which creates a spacious living area. The saloon tables operate on an electronically adjustable mount and can be lowered, raised or folded up according to the guests' needs. Lighting is not a problem onboard the 520 Grand Large, since deck windows provide the saloon with natural light. Additionally, so as to make the experience entirely perfect, LED lights are also positioned by each bed, as well as inside the wardrobes.
The yacht offers four possible layouts and depending on the layout chosen, can accommodate up to twelve people in five cabins (combining double and bunk single berths) and incorporate three bathrooms, ideal for families or group of friends. The aft port cabin can be converted easily from a double to twin beds for additional space. The boat is fully air-conditioned and equipped with all the galley appliances and accessories that make it an undoubtedly modern charter yacht.
A large cockpit is fully enclosed with spacious side and aft seats, allowing greater conform onboard. The cockpit area is almost entirely clear due to the German mainsheet system which runs on a coach roof mounted traveller. Foodies will be happy to know that the cockpit table hides, not only a handy barbecue in the aft seats, but also a sizeable fridge located beneath the table-top. What's more, the central aft seat rotates 180° to offer additional seating for guests around the table. Therefore, the cockpit is probably the most popular place onboard the 520 Grand Large for relaxing, cooking or socializing.
To make things more impressive, the boat has an innovative double level platform. The upper level of the platform extends the cockpit and the space outboard, whereas the lower level enables easy docking, unloading and disembarking. Two large winches, reachable from the helm, control the sails quite easily. The wide transom ensures good visibility and control while sitting behind the wheel, so you will not miss any of the surrounding views whilst sailing.
The 520 Grand Large, as part of the Dufour family, has once again inherited the remarkable performance quality that has made the brand internationally successful. This newest model allows powerful sailing that is easily managed. Great performance always starts from the helm, which in this case answers amazingly to the helmsman's needs. Staying on course is almost effortless since its helm station is equipped with a functional pod console integrating all the navigation instruments.
Moreover, a new back rest incorporated at the corner of the pushpit ensures additional comfort and security during navigation. Apart from the innovative helm, the yacht offers powerful speed, guaranteeing both sailing thrills and a relaxing tempo without jeopardizing comfort and elegance at any point.
This yacht indeed sets the highest standards of sailing. It meets not only the needs of experienced sailors who wish to explore many new places, but also of sailing beginners, families or groups of friends who want to experience an unforgettable sailing adventure at a slower pace.
Your time onboard this beauty will be nothing short of fantastic due to its first-class accommodation and easily manageable cockpit which creates more time for relaxing while sailing. The Dufour 520 Grand Large is therefore a indispensable indulgence and should be seriously considered for the perfect sailing holiday.
