Allures 40.9 ‘Experience Freedom’
The first sailboat in the Allures Yachting range, the Allures 40.9 brings together all the qualities which have made the yard such a success: the accomplished combination of aluminium and composites to create an elegant and powerful boat which is very easy to handle, safe and comfortable. For a straightforward experience at sea in all conditions.
The qualities of the Allures 40.9 are based on many years of experience and innovation that have shaped the DNA of the Allures Yachting yard. Starting with our patented technology that combines the performance of composite superstructures with the safety of aluminium hulls, which has become the trademark of Allures yachts today. Our partners, the naval architecture team at Berret-Racoupeau, have created a modern hull by adding to the solidity of the aluminium with beam, power and maximum length at the waterline. Thus more efficient, the Allures 40.9 is free to take you quickly to the far side of the world. From slipping along under trade winds to reach paradise islands, to wandering through the fjords of Scandinavia, there are many sailing experiences to choose from. Its large charging capacity and large diesel tank also ensure a perfect autonomy that will give you even more freedom.
A centreboarder with aluminium hull, ease of handling, efficiency, twin helms, visibility from the saloon, profiled appendages, large storage volumes, technical room, separate shower, double chart table, sugar scoop lockers, saloon with sea view… All designed to provide you with absolute comfort whether under way or at anchor.
As a guarantee of safety, reefing is carried out from the cockpit. Spacious and deep, it offers optimum ergonomics, both at anchor and for sail handling and trimming. The location of the winches makes it possible to position yourself perfectly, whatever the sea state.
But the Allures 40.9 is not just an ergonomic yacht that makes sailing easier, it is also an elegant sailboat with exceptional lines and a great design both inside and out.
