Interview / Salvatore Serio: "Dufour is thinking about producing catamarans and motorboats"


We went to meet the president of Dufour Yachts, Salvatore Serio. He received us to present the site and its future. Notably in terms of new products

2016 was the year of the inauguration of the Exclusive range for Dufour. The models that will come under this label will be large top-of-the-range boats. Luxury, comfort, detail finish... with the Exclusive Dufour sets a foot in the yacht world.

After the 56 launched in September at the Cannes Motor Show, the eagerly awaited 63 has just arrived at the Düsseldorf Motor Show in January 2017. Salvatore Serio looks back at the positioning of this highly anticipated range.

And the future? During the interview, we learn that Dufour does not stop thinking very broadly. If production is only monohull today, why not relaunch catamarans or even motor boats. Universes that Dufour had already invested in the past and which are very promising in terms of market today. To be continued..
