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.”
The Allures 52 is a prestige yacht for true long-distance cruising.
It is also an innovative project, the fruits of a collaboration between boat builders, designers and yachtsmen. Everyone, whether they are professionals, experts or just passionate sailors dream of a unique and accomplished yacht. They wanted a yacht which reflected the spirit of the times and fulfilled the aspirations of the modern yachtsman. Only a safe and comfortable yacht, quick and elegant, could get them dreaming.

Safety, Power, and Elegance
Three words that help to summarize the design and execution of the Allures Yachting line. Below we’ve detailed many of the features that serve to bring those adjectives together into the picture of a modern, ocean-going yacht.
Strength & Safety
Allures Yachting was founded by sailors who, perhaps like you, discovered that selecting an ocean-going yacht involved compromises they were unwilling to make. After interviewing sailors around the globe, some famous, many not, they took their concept to the yacht design firm of Berret-Racoupeau. The founders next partnered with the shipyard of Outremer, specializing in the production of fast catamarans, and Garcia, specializing in the construction of aluminum blue water vessels. Together, they are building a line of ocean-going yachts that are: safe in all conditions, high performance, a joy to sail, adaptable to all moorings, comfortable, user-friendly, and elegant inside and out. We think they have succeeded.
By bringing together the best design and boat construction professionals available, Allures Yachting is able to build yachts of the highest quality, in a world-class yard, and with tight control over manufacturing and delivery.
