Uni­ver­sal mod­i­fies Du­four’s 360

Yachting Monthly - - NEWS -

Fol­low­ing Yacht­ing Monthly’s first test of the new Du­four 360 (YM, Aug 2018), Uni­ver­sal Yacht­ing, the French brand’s UK agent, has an­nounced it has fixed the is­sue of height re­stric­tion in the star­board aft cabin.

The cabin’s cur­rent twin/dou­ble lay­out meant that crew mem­bers were left strug­gling with a 21cm (8in) height re­stric­tion along 61cm (2ft) of the berth, mak­ing the space dif­fi­cult to use com­fort­ably.

Uni­ver­sal Yacht­ing has now re­duced this re­stric­tion to the last 26cm (10in), which matches the port aft cabin. Uni­ver­sal said this makes the star­board aft cabin a far more usable area.

De­tails of the mod­i­fi­ca­tions have also been passed onto Du­four to hope­fully repli­cate this al­ter­ation on its fu­ture mod­els.

Uni­ver­sal Yacht­ing has said it will per­form this mod­i­fi­ca­tion of the star­board aft cabin on all of the Du­four 360s it sells with this lay­out, re­gard­less of whether it is adopted by the fac­tory.

The re­stric­tive clear­ance in this ver­sion of the Du­four 360 has now been re­solved to make it a much more com­fort­able berth
