Dufour Yachts are high quality Yachts built in France. With respect to each market, each design is more specifically constructed around its usage. The Performance is a more light weight yacht built for regatta . ARKA was launched in June 2009 at La Rochelle. Her first owner participated in regattas for 3 years then had her delivered to the Caribbean, where he upgraded the boat to be better suited to cruising /live aboard, with the addition of solar panels, davits, etc. Once in Martinique and due to health problems the previous owner used ARKA lightely with accurate and careful maintenance of all parts until 2017. ARKA was never chartered, and her current owners, who discovered her after extensive research and purchased her in April 2017, include a professional offshore skipper and expert logistician / navigator, an Italian Navy Admiral and antother very experienced sailor who had also sailed most of her life. The 3 friends took over to continue the world sailing they had initiated in Italy with a Hallberg Rassy 42.  In preparation for the journey, they customised and renewed many fittings to enhance the original Grand Large design, aiming at improving independence at sea with, for example, additonal large solar panels of 300 Amp/hr each and new batteries, watermaker,  The 485 Grand Large Series has reinforced structural beams, deck coaming, improved hull rigidity and a 1,60 m keel perfect for exploring shallow lagoons. With her retractable bowsprit with furling code 0, cutter rig with removable furling jib to further support the mast, beautifully cut sails and a beautifully balanced hull, she also cuts an impressive, elegant but powerful figure on a regatta track.
