The Dufour Association provides a forum for the exchange of knowledge and information for the owners of all classes of yachts manufactured under the Dufour name.
The Association's prime purpose is to exchange information about the maintenance, spares, modifications and improvements to Dufour boats and to share people's knowledge and experience.
The Association publishes a Newsletter "Dufour News" (three issues each year) containing articles from members concerning their boats, work carried out, their cruises and other activities. It also organises events and rallies to enable members to meet and socialise.
There are event organisers for various locations around the UK and we welcome others to assist with organising events in their local sailing areas. Details of events are given in the Newsletter, and on the Events page.
The web site is assembling details of all the types of Dufour yachts and we encourage members to contribute their own reviews, comments, additions and modifications either they have carried out, or have had carried out for them. The recommendation of good suppliers is useful. The Technical pages contain useful information.,
It is this accumulated knowledge that makes membership of the Association so valuable.
We are not just concerned with the technical aspects of owning boats, but to assist newcomers to sailing who buy a Dufour as their first boat, to share knowledge and experience of our boats, provide information for people who wish to sail in new areas, tales from the more adventurous and the lessons learned from those who have tales to share.
The Association holds its AGM early in the New Year, following a lunch. Here the officers for the year are elected and set the events calendar for the year.
We provide a For Sale and Wanted listing where members may advertise their boats and other items for sale, as well as for items that are wanted.
