We own a Dufour 325 (2007). We found a label in the forecabin upholstery covers with washing instructions and they came up a treat! However, the cream upholstery in the main cabin is different fabric and starting to look a little tired, but there are no labels inside the covers with any washing instructions.

A short soaking with Clorox (1/2cup per gallon) then a run through the washing machine and they are like new. Did both the cabin seats in the faux suede and the others and they came out very well.
