Sailboat Nominee Highlights

dufour 360 grand large named best boat nominee for 2019 by sail magazineDufour Grand Large 360

This super smart design by Felci brings Dufour’s favorite features from its larger boats into this smaller model:

  • Interior wood and finish options previously reserved for larger boats
  • Coach roof re-design for more interior room
  • Redesigned cockpit with more efficient use of space and helm station
  • Addition of the outdoor galley equipped with a barbecue and a sink concealed in the seats.

This high-performing monohull offers cruising comfort with twin helms and chines to increase stability and interior volume. The helm’s two sleek steering columns and consoles are ready for short-handed sailing in close proximity to the winches.

We have 2018 Dufour 360 Grand Large monohull models in stock in Annapolis now, ready for charter management or private ownership.

wauquiez pilot saloon 42 named best boat nominee for 2019 by sail magazineWauquiez Pilot Saloon 42

Berret Racoupeau again brings intentional design to maximize function of the social spaces affording stunning panoramic views from inside the Wauquiez Pilot Saloon 42. Natural light pours into the saloon that highlights natural elements. No more dark gloomy interiors for this blue water yacht. The interior’s efficient use of space makes this sailboat a top choice for those who enjoy long cruising trips and ocean-crossing excursions.

The cockpit is very large and features a centerline drop-leaf table with stowage just forward of the twin wheels. Cruisers and weekenders will surely dine in the cockpit every chance the weather gives them.

The 2018 Wauquiez Pilot Saloon 42 on exhibit will be well-equipped and ready to sail the oceans or the bay. Talk with one of our brokers to discover how easy Dream Yacht can make ownership of this head-turner.

bali 4.1 named 2019 best boat nominee by sail magazineBali 4.1

The Bali 4.1 is the result of keenly aware designers observing how its Bali 4.0 predecessor’s spacious and open social areas were utilized. More space, bench seating in the aft cockpit, increased stowage space, and a space to include the outdoor plancha grille are just some of the improvements. The signature Bali social and relaxation spaces with plenty of sunbathing area on the flybridge simply accommodates more people.

Lasta Design Studio redesigned the interior emphasizing light and ergonomics. Cruisers will marvel at the more than ample work and storage space in the galley as well as the full-size refrigerator and extra tankage. This catamaran is the most practical for cruisers in its size range.
