Allures 39.9: A true ocean-cruising sailing yacht, now in production    

'Allures 39.9'    .

The first unit will not begin her sea trials until next month, but if her claims are anywhere near real, this is a boat that a cruising sailor might find is well worth waiting for.

Compare to the Allures 40 which preceded it, this new model brings major advances. The Allures 39.9 is more powerful with a hull longer by two feet on the waterline and also wider at the beam.

About nine months of studies have been necessary for Racoupeau Yacht Design team and the Allures engineering department to develop the design of this new model. The boat is fully developed on a 3D model which enables the engineer to propose a very high standard of quality

The design, they say, has been built to strict specifications driven by many round-the-world sailors' feedback. She has all the characteristics of a true ocean-cruising sailing yacht, strong and resilient.

Allures 39.9 build begins -  .. .  

In line with the innovative design philosophy, she has a lifting-keel, an aluminum hull for safety and a composite deck for performance and comfort. This means in her normal configuration she has a very shallow draft, ideal for snugging into shore and away from the wind when at anchor.

She also has twin helms, faired appendices, large lockers, technical room with light bunk, separate shower, dual chart table, swim platform lockers, saloon with outside view, she is really made for the high seas.

Twin wheels steering system offers outstanding comfort in navigation and optimizes the circulation to the swim platform. The large technical room in which a workbench or a sea bunk can be installed allows the owners to set numerous equipment for ocean sailing (generator, dessalinisateur, heating, machine washing, etc..). Finally the interiors offer a fresh and luminous style.

The Cherbourg based French shipyard, Allures Yachting, is now building the first model, replacing the Allures 40. The hull has been built by the Garcia Yachting shipyard, well known for the excellent craftsmanship of their boilermakers.

The shipwrights are presently busy with the woodwork.

The order book already has eight units to date. The next delivery date available is in September 2013.

Interesting boat!
