Michel Dufour, an engineer and sailing enthusiast from La Rochelle, decided to set up his own shipyard back in 1964. Specialising in the design and sale of French yachts for over 50 years, Dufour Yachts has established a reputation as a leading company in its field.
This success is down to two beliefs. Michel Dufour has always been convinced that sailing would move with the times due to the advent of new technologies and innovative materials, and also firmly believes that sailing will continue to embody a pioneering and adventurous spirit. He is determined to take sailing pleasure to new heights.
