Dufour 530

Dufour 530 - Bareboat incl. with skipper Monohulls

A brand-new model from Dufour in 2021, the Dufour 530 combines aspects of the designers' earlier Performance and Grande Large boats, the latter targeted at cruising. The result is a fine award-winning monohull yacht that will meet all the expectations of discerning charterers.

16.3m, 53'
Charter Type:
Bareboat incl. with skipper
up to 12
Up to 6 double

The 530 develops the earlier Dufour Grande Large 520 with subtle improvements all round. The decks are clear for relaxation and enjoyment, with room for a large sunpad under the boom and a smaller one forward, while the twin helm stations are a pair of pedestals clear of the seating and drop-leaf centre table close by the outdoor galley. 

Accommodation is configured with up to six cabins and two to four bathrooms, with separate quarters if choosing to hire a skipper. Thee main galley is places to allow the saloon to take advantage of the boat's full beam. as expected of Dufour, the finishing and fit-out is all of a high quality, with all the appliances and on-board accessories expected of the modern bareboat charter yacht.  

Under both sail and power, the Dufour 530 hums along at good speed and responsively on a stable platform. A classy monohull for charter with friends and family if ever there was one, and increasingly available throughout the sailing holiday destination network..

Skippered Options

This boat can be chartered bareboat, skippered by you our client with one of your party as first mate. Or you may wish to leave responsibility for the boat to someone else, by engaging your own skipper and/or crew. We call that "crewed bareboat", and we can arrange that for you too!

At Sail Connections we have access to a pool of contract skippers and crew, and we can chose individuals to suit the dynamics of your charter party. They will navigate you safely between places of interest, and provide excellent guide services along the way, introducing you to local customs, attractions and sites that you might otherwise miss out on experiencing.

If you have special recreational interests your crew will advise on where to go and how to get involved. Their local networks let them know what's happening in your destination, and importantly they have insider info on where to get the best fresh produce from land and sea!

Talk to us about the cost of crewed bareboat. We can quote your bareboat with and without paid crew, and on a partially or fully crewed basis. We can also arrange full advance provisioning of the boat if required. Your contract is directly with the skipper through the charter operator.

When enquiring about this boat, please ask us about a paid crew, and we can discuss all the benefits in more detail.

"The highlight of our Croatia charter was actually having a skipper who could make berthing arrangements at each place we visited. Toni was fantastic. He would also make restaurant recommendations and bookings as well. He took the stress of decision-making away which meant we had a much better experience at each island we visited. Everything flowed!"
