Your flagship to discover the vastness of the world
Allures Yachting has once again re-set their benchmark in creating a strong yet elegant yacht that will perform to a high standard without sacrificing safety or comfort. The newly announced Allures 51.9 is the culmination of 15 years of development that began with the Allures 51 and then 52. Combing feedback from owners with the boatbuilder’s own research and refinement, this new yacht is truly worthy of the flagship status she now holds.
Crafted in aluminum with a GRP deck and house, sailing performance is aided with an increased waterline length, generous sail plan and retractable centerboard. A mainsheet arch keeps the boom overhead and winches are placed near the helms with short-handed sailing in mind. The large cockpit provides easy access to wide side decks, and is also functionally designed as another living space. A large lounge area and retractable bathing platform on the sugar scoop transom are new features for Allures yachts.
Down below, a full-beam aft owner’s cabin is tastefully executed and includes an en suite head and shower. As with all Allures yachts, access to the engine and technical spaces is excellent and system design and implementation is top notch. Forward of the companionway is a sizeable U-shaped galley, open salon and unique L-shaped nav station. Two arrangements of forward cabins are available: a large cabin with centerline berth, single bunk cabin to starboard and head to port. Or, a mirrored two cabin version, each with their own head.
The Allures 51.9 was created for sailors who want the freedom to explore the world without sacrificing style, comfort, safety or performance. When high quality craftsmanship, customer input and the dream of cruising from high latitudes to the tropics combine, you can do just that.
With the Allures 51.9, designers were given the task of bringing Allures Yachting into the prestigious world of the ocean cruising yacht. If all the functions usually required are found on such a boat in general, and more particularly on an Allures of course, then an increase in length makes it possible to even offer more.
More performance at sea thanks to an increased waterline length. More comfort thantks to a large cockpit and easy access to the side-decks, a large sunbathing area and a retractable bathing platform on the sugarscoop. More protection with an optional rigid bimini to secure the watchkeeper in all condition. And more hergonomics with station grouping all the manoeuvres necessary for sailing with a reduced crew, in particular thanks to the positioning of the winches near the helmsman.
On board the Allures 51.9, the seamanlike nature and the practicality of the fittings compete with the purity of the lines and elegance of contemporary design furniture, initiated by Isabelle Racoupeau. Ergonomics of the different functions, fluidity of movement, and multiple living areas offer a place for everyone, and for every moment :
- Large full-width owner’s cabin aft
- Spacious, comfortable and welcoming saloon communicating directly with the chart table
- Friendly U-shaped galley open to the saloon, designed for cooking while under way
- Engine room dedicated to technical and engine access
- And a saloon modulating ‘lounge’ with a wide bench and a chart table meridian.
Living on board will be your privilege, because the Allures 51.9 is irrefutably one of the most prestigious yachts. The very high quality of workmanship is enhanced by the extremely generous entry of external light during the day. At night, the lighting is warm to transform your Allures into a protective cocoon. Every day on board is a renewed pleasure, an invitation to continue the journey…
