Join Swiftsure Yachts at the 2017 US Sailboat Show in Annapolis October 5-9 for the North American debut of the Allures 45.9!
Allures yachts, in a class all their own
Whether cruising the ICW or heading offshore for the tropical waters of the Caribbean, Allures Yachting’s 45.9 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 9 feet to 3.5 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.”

For the past 14 years the Allures Yachting shipyard has become a reference point for blue water cruising yachts thanks to the support and confidence of its owners. Their experience, based on tens of thousand 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 avalable in centerboard version for low draught, which enables beaching in total autonomy.
Besides the centerboard version – a shipyard speciality – the Allures 45.9 is also available in a lifting keel version, ideal for those who prefer the performance of a lighter sailboat.
Always so different
Although the Allures 45.9 is a novelty, it is still first and foremost an Allures, with all its distinctive features. As our owners are demanding seafarers, we offer them the safest means to realize their dreams.
The aluminium hull and composite deck construction has long represented the perfect combination in the luxury yacht industry, providing customers with the best of both worlds.
Attractive, ergonomic, piratical, lightweight, insulated… if we hadn’t been building it since 2003, it would have to be invented!
Allures hulls have always been aluminium, a material of unparalleled resistance for safe sailing. The Berret-Racoupeau design combines elegant lines and performance. Finally, the unique know-how of Grand Large Yachting offers world-class workmanship and unmatched finishing quality. The minimal draft and the possibility of beaching enable you to access the most inaccessible anchorages, often the safest.
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!
Two versions for the same passion
Allures Yachting doubles its offering and widens the range of possibilities for its best-selling yacht. Performance and low draft have always been in the DNA of each model created by Allures.
The new lifting keel version available today along with the legendary centerboard version offers an additional variation on the same theme. As safety is paramount for our customers, the stability of both versions is rigorously identical. With identical sail surface and mast height, the lifting keel version features a 2280 kg lighter ballast, when centerboard allows it to beach in total autonomy.
Constantly aiming for excellence…
With its centered winches on the cockpit, positioned at ideal height, the ergonomic cockpit allows easier and safer maneuvering, perfect for sailing with a small crew. The entirely composite deck ensures better weight distribution, thereby optimizing performance and seafaring experience.
Key elements of blue water yachts, favored 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 seacocks 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.
