Dufour 310GL

I have made a recent post about this boat that had impress me at the Dusseldorf boat show, said that the boat had a very nice hull designed by Felci but could not find a photo to show it. Here it is:



The boat was tested by the Italians from SVN that as usual made a great static test and comparison with the Hanse 325 but not much in what regards sailing. Anyway they said about it:

"It took time to convince me that this was just a 31ft boat."

Regarding sailing they say the obvious: that the boat with a selftaking small jib is not very at ease in light winds but as they failed to have a furling code 0 aboard could not really tell about the boat performance even if they think that will be good The boat can also be equipped with a bigger genoa.

Here is the test, in Italian...I know that most cannot read it but there is plenty of information on the many images. A nice graphic work:
