The Saloon has a U-shaped settee and convertible table to port. To starboard is the L-shaped settee and an adjustable Nav Station. Two half bulkheads separate the Saloon from the Galley. One is a cabinet that will hold dishes and the other, which is aft facing and holds a popup flat screen TV. Dufour's signature wine rack in the cabin sole holds 15 bottles laying down and 10 standing up. A drawer under the settee can hold an additional 8 bottles.
The Galley forward galley is only found on our 460, 500 & 560. The functionality and use of space has to be seen to be fully appreciated. Just forward of the salon you find the full beam galley. The S/S sink with Corian covers has a brushed stainless single lever mixer tap and below sink storage. There is a 3-burner gas stove with oven and grill. The Refrigerator/freezer is front opening. There is a microwave oven in the stbd. hull cubby hole. There is a trash bin to port. Cabinets above and below provide plenty of storage.
Sails and Rigging
Standard set up is a classic full batten main with a stack pack. In mast furling is a factory available option. If furling is a must, so we stick with our performance heritage, we would recommend doing an in boom system during commissioning.
