    For the past 14 years, the Allures Yachting shipyard has become a reference point for blue water sailing yachts thanks to the support and confidence of its owners.

    Their experience, based on tens of thousands of miles aboard our sailboats, our own sailing expertise and passionate attention to architectural developments have contributed to the creation of this new gem in the Allures range.

    Allures 45.9 offers even more comfort, easy sailing with a small crew and better performance, all while ensuring the utmost safety.

    This new model is available in centreboard version for low draught, which enables beaching in total autonomy.

    Besides the centreboard version–a shipyard speciality–Allures 45.9 is also available in a lifting keel version, ideal for those who prefer the performance of a lighter sailboat.

    Allures hulls have always been aluminium, a material of unparalleled resistance for safe sailing.
    The Berret-Racoupeau Yacht Design combines elegant lines and performance. Finally, the unique know-how of the Groupe Grand Large Yachting offers world-class workmanship and unmatched finishing quality. The minimalist draught and the possibility of beaching enable you to access the most inaccessible anchorages, often the safest.

    The aluminium hull and composite deck construction has long represented the perfect combination in the luxury yacht industry.

    Developing this technology for yachting provides Allures Yachting customers with the best of both worlds.
    Attractive, ergonomic, practical, lightweight, insulated... if we hadn’t been building it since 2003, it would have to be invented!

    Franck Darnet, the designer, is also a seafarer. For Allures Yachting, Franck Darnet designs practical nautical interiors whose comfort is matched by their pure and elegant lines.

    Spaciousness, ideal accessibility, high capacity tanks and host of details to make your daily life at sea a breeze. An Allures yacht takes you far, for a long time, in total autonomy… and back home!

    A few centimetres longer (77, to be exact), a more powerful stern, forward bearing shapes, all contribute to an entirely new impression of interior spaciousness.

    Aside from the extra centimetres, the Allures 45.9 proposes an innovative modularity, such a forward cabin which quickly transforms into either a double bed or two twin beds; or the saloon, which turns into a large children's play area, nighttime sleeping area or daytime leisure area.

    Safe, functional, elegant, the accommodation in the Allures 45.9 is particularly ideal for life at sea. The headroom and generous portholes offer exceptional living space and comfort.

    In addition to the traditional interior – Classic version (Cherry wood), a Zen version is also proposed with a light oak.

    With its centred winches on the cockpit, positioned at ideal height, the ergonomic cockpit allows easier and safer manoeuvring, perfect for sailing with a small crew. The entirely composite deck ensures better weight distribution, thereby optimising performance and seafaring experience. Key elements of blue water yachts, favoured by our seafaring customers are the standard spacious forward sail locker forming the crash box and technical room at the back. Accessible from the interior and from the deck through a watertight hatch, the technical room comes equipped with a standard number of storage cupboards.

    Constantly aiming for perfection, the smallest details receive just a much attention:
    • Large capacity water and fuel tanks
    • Aluminium sea-cocks below and above the waterline
    • Technical locker between the two cabins suitable to accommodate a power generator + a washing machine
    • Ample storage space in the skirt - 13 kg gas bottle compartment and fender compartment
    • Aft compartment for outboard motor
    • Large access hatch to sail locker


    I’d love to own an Allures 45.9 – it gives me all I want 
in a cruising yacht and so much more. She feels indestructible on the water and, with some extra canvas to increase her sail area for light wind days, she’ll heel and go – whatever the weather.

    She might not be the most responsive boat to helm, but when she’s going you feel like nothing is going to get in her way.

    I don’t care that she’s got a bare aluminium hull. 
In fact, it requires just the amount of upkeep I have time for – absolutely none!

    Just the sight of her approaching will scare most GRP boat owners into action looking for extra fenders.
    The accommodation is spacious, comfortable and versatile; there is room to do maintenance and running repairs, relax, be social or hide away.

    I covet the thought of making a morning coffee, sitting at the chart table and looking out across some remote drying anchorage.


    If you’re looking for a serious cruiser, capable of coastal, offshore and bluewater sailing, the Allures 45.9 should 
be on your short list.

    She has layout options to satisfy a couple or a family and can easily be sailed short-handed over long distances. Add to that the ability to dry out or navigate in just over a metre of water and you have a formidable package; even without all the advantages an aluminium hull brings to the table.

    With the GRP deck, aluminium round-bilge and centreboard, she’s unique – no other manufacturer offers all of these features on one boat.

    Like most yachts, she could benefit from a few small tweaks here and there (which any owner would have their own views on) but Allures can adapt to and incorporate your ideas.

    As she is, she’s replaced the Allures 45 on my five-boat-list of yachts to dream of sailing round the world on, but having just worked out how many more years I’ll have to test boats for, sadly I won’t be casting off in her any time soon!
