A new start in UK, for Dufour Yachts at the Southampton Boat Show

Chris Warwick, the Dufour Yachts shipyard is present at this Southampton Boat Show with 2 boats, through your company, Universal Yachting. Can we say, that's the big come back of Dufour in UK ?

Chris Warwick - We are very proud to have had the opportunity to join the Dufour Yachts network for UK. The dealership agreement was signed a few monthes ago with the Dufour Sales Director, Pierre-François Lepoutre, who was looking for a distributor really involved in the brand. The Dufour brand is very powerfull and legendary around the globe, and it was important for us to participate to its successfull story. 

As you say, The 2016 Southampton Boat Show edition signs the come back of the Dufour brand in UK. We already benefit of a very attractive range, including the Grand Large models and the new Exclusive range, of the very active UK Dufour Owner's Club, and of the strong support of the shipyard. On this Southampton Boat Show, the Universal Yachting team is very proud to expose the Dufour 350 and the Dufour 412, consisting in the last models launched by the shipyard. As you see, very good news !
