D'uphoria | Modern Sailing


Gold Fleet
Dufour 36

D'uphoria is a Dufour 36 in our Berkeley Gold Fleet. This model isn’t the most common 36-foot boat on the San Francisco Bay, but that’s what makes her special. 

This hidden gem of a boat sails very nicely.  One thing we like about her is the reefing system, which is very similar to that of a J/24.  The reefing system includes reefing hooks (ram’s horns) on either side of the goose, instead of the single-line reefing system you find on many others similar sized boats.

She has a sail drive configuration which can be tricky when motoring.  There is minimal prop walk (for better or worse) and there is a bit of a delay in transitioning from reverse to forward.  But the engine hums like a kitten and will take you where you need to go.

Down below is impeccable … and very cozy in a traditional sense with lots of wood and handholds.

She’s a great boat for a sleep over at a mooring or on the hook!

    All of the courses and my instructors (JT and Stan) were extremely professional and full of knowledge and experience. I found I was able to learn from their experiences beyond the scope of the courses, and look forward to future opportunities to do so. I would highly recommend Modern Sailing to anyone.

    I took ASA 101 with them recently. They have the best customer service I've ever seen! I mistyped my address when I signed up online so didn't receive the textbook. I called and the lady immediately sent me another copy! Everyone at the club is super friendly.

    I love sailing in the San Francisco Bay and greatly appreciate everything that MSC has to offer, the classes, clinics, club sails, racing and charters. I enjoy our supportive sailing community and use every opportunity to spend time on the water. After obtaining the certifications from MSC I did my first charter in Croatia in 2022 with my family. It was amazing and we’re looking forward to returning soon!
