Allures 45.9 Lifting Keel… it arrives!
Allures 45.9
Allures Yachting is expanding the range of possibilities by twinning its offer.

The lifting keel version of the Allures 45.9 offered alongside the legendary centreboard version provides new variation on the same theme.

Those looking for pure performance will appreciate this opportunity to reconcile blue water cruising with optimised weight. The lifting keel version weighs in at two tonnes lighter with similar sail area and mast height. Because safety is non-negotiable for our clients, both versions offer precisely identical stability characteristics.

The reduced draft is an essential requirement for blue water cruising. When the keel is lifted by a powerful hydraulic ram, the draft is reduced from 2.9 m to 1.47 m.

The Allures 45.9 DI (lifting keel) can be beached using a pair of legs located at the midships beam.

Launched in August, this first production yacht will be available to view at the Grand Pavois de La Rochelle boat show between 26 September and 1 October before setting sail on a circumnavigation in pursuit of its centreboard big brothers.

So which version of the Allures 45.9 will make your blue water cruising dreams come true?
