A World Traveler
Allures yachts, in a class all their own
Whether cruising high latitudes or heading offshore for the tropical waters of the Caribbean, Allures Yachting’s 52 is more than meets the eye.
Created by the renowned Berret-Racoupeau Yacht Design Studio, Allures’s line of rugged yet elegant passagemakers are built with the true cruiser in mind. Just at home reaching fast in the tradewinds as picking their way through rocky fjords or finding shelter in shallow, protected anchorages, no detail has been spared for those looking to achieve their cruising dreams in style and comfort.
Built in France to a very high standard, the welds are professionally and cleanly executed and the rounded, insulated hulls are a thing of beauty. Twin rudders provide impeccable tracking in large seas and respond to a light touch while sailing close to the wind. And the lifting centerboard that swings the draft from 10 feet to 4 will not only have you anchored in shallow coves, but also provides excellent performance to windward.
A composite superstructure keeps the boat’s overall weight down and the with an easily handled cutter rig, a couple or shorthanded crew can manage the boat in even the most boisterous conditions from the roomy and seaworthy cockpit.
Each Allures yacht is crafted by a dedicated team of boatbuilders and it shows just as much down below as on deck. The finely crafted interiors are bright and visibility from the salon and galley is impeccable through large windows. Fuel, water and batteries are housed under a raised cabin sole to keep weight centered and low. And there is a generous amount of storage throughout, including a large space aft of the engine for a generator, watermaker, spare parts or whatever you might need extra room for.
No two Allures yachts are the exact same, and each boat is highly customizable so the owner gets the best of what works for their cruising style and crew. The starboard aft cabin, for instance, can be a stateroom, technical room or workshop. And if you’d prefer a combination of all three, the workbench can be converted into a bunk with ample storage underneath.
This flexibility in design coupled with Allures’ unique capabilities will provide you with an enviable boat that is truly yours. You just might want to warn your cruising buddies, “Don’t follow me, you might not make it.”
