History

In 1957, young engineer Michel Dufour discovered the new material, polyester. At the time, he was a keen competition sailor with a real passion for yachts, class rules and hydrodynamics. This sparked his idea to build a yacht made of polyester. In 1964, Michel Dufour started to design the "Sylphe" transportable yacht. He took a lot of financial risks to make the yacht, rented a hangar and started to make the "Sylphe" under the aegis of his newly formed company, Le Stratifié Industriel.

Design

The famous Italian naval architect Umberto Felci and the designers of Dufour Yachts work in very close cooperation to get hulls of the very best quality. The worldwide reputation of our yachts does not need to be reminded.
