Dufour 44 Performance
Noumea, New Caledonia
We are very pleased to offer on the market today “XANAX”, a Dufour 44 performance from 2007.
The Dufour 44 is designed by Umberto Felci and reflects that design house’s vast experience in both fast passage-making boats and all-out racers. She is designed for easy single- or short-handed sailing, with the mainsail track on the cockpit sole at the foot of the steering column and well-placed genoa winches. Visibility and movement around the decks are enhanced by the wide side decks and recessed chainplates.
The vacuum-bagged construction of the hull in a PVC foam/fibreglass/Twaron (Kevlar) sandwich guarantees absolute rigidity and weight optimisation for unequalled strength. The laminated stringer system reinforced with Twaron (Kevlar) fibre ensures a spread of the load throughout the entire structure.
Below decks, practicality is evident in the large chart table, accessible electrical panel, and the overall ergonomics of the navigator’s area. The galley is L-shaped and very seaworthy, with large closed-in shelves.

- Modified keel by Backewell White (NZ) with 3600 kg bulb
