Those interested in the yacht charter of this vessel should note that in 2010, the sailing yacht Dufour 405 Grand Large received the title of “European Yacht of the Year”.

In the middle of 2012, one such vessel sailed to Latvia straight from the factory in France.

The yacht combines outstanding comfort and cruise characteristics, which are a trademark of Dufour yachts. This particular vessel looks as a good as new and is well-maintained with modern tackle, navigation equipment, a broad cockpit and redwood saloon finish.

One pleasantly surprising thing about the yacht is the spaciousness of its cockpit. It can easily accommodate up eight seated guests around a folding table on which you can lay out a beautiful celebratory feast. This all takes place outside in the fresh air under the sails against the backdrop of picturesque scenery sliding by. The yacht’s saloon is equally comfortable, offering guests a range of additional amenities including a TV on which one can watch either scheduled programmes or some DVD. There is also a well-fitted galley with hot and cold water, a gas cooker, large fridge, freezer and microwave oven.

For the convenience of guests, there are two WCs with a shower, a powerful 220V 2.8kW power system, an audio system, a “wine cellar”, autonomous heating for use in cooler weather, as well as all you need to arrange your hairstyle before important photo sessions such as a wedding photo shoot on the yacht.

On long distance cruises, guest can sleep in the yacht’s three cabins. A total of eight beds are available including two in the yacht’s saloon.
