The Dufour 560GL is the 2015 Cruising World "Boat of the Year". Like many of the new Dufour models that have been introduced over the last few years, the 560 has a very unique layout with three-cabins, three-heads and a forward bulkhead galley which allows the main salon to be at the widest part of the boat. The deck layout makes short-handed sailing a dream with electric winches throughout, the sheets and control lines led directly to the helmsperson and a self-tacking jib. Most importantly, "Caprice" shows like a brand new boat having been captain maintained, indoor stored and looked after with an open checkbook policy. She is a must see at a fraction of the price of a new Dufour 56.
