In line with Grand Large philosophy, the cockpit is closed by aft seats which also have the advantage of hiding the famous barbecue and his sink.  The new cockpit table on stainless steel feet included a 39L drawer fridge hidden under the table tops.  The aft central seat flips by 180° to offer an additional seat around the table. Helm station is equipped with an elegant and functional pod console which uses all navigation equipments and optional electronic engine remote.

The Dufour 520 proposes a exclusive innovating aft platform with double level. The system is remotable and perfectly integrated aft hull.
