Hello and welcome aboard the Allures 40.9 from Allures Yachting. The Allures 40.9 is the third generation 40-foot sailing yacht from Allures Yachting. The Allures 40.9 takes full advantage of owner feedback from the previous two generations which have sailed the seven the seas for the last 15 years.
Designed for blue water cruising
This blue water cruising sailboat has a full aluminum hull and centerboard. The aluminum hull inspires confidence whether sailing on the open ocean or in poorly charted waters. The centerboard makes for easy access to the most protected anchorages, with a draft reduced to just over one meter. This centerboard is also well known for comfort and safety at sea. The boat is designed for blue water cruising with onboard comfort adapted for long voyages.
A wide transom platform was designed to facilitate access to the water. The deep swim ladder
The rear arch of the Allures 40.9 was designed to make maneuvering the dingy easy, even with the outboard attached. It also serves as support for technical equipment such as solar panels, wind turbines or even iridium antennas.
One of the important features of the Allures 40.9 is the storage locker for the outboard, which is very useful during crossings or offseason storage.
Optimized circulation and maneuvers
From the helm station there is easy and simple access to the genoa winch for solent or staysail adjustments. In addition to the storage space in the technical room and on the transom, the cockpit has a large locker on the port side and lockers under each the helm station bench.
On a blue water cruising boat, all maneuvers are done in the cockpit from one of the two cockpit winches, including all sail adjustments such as reefing the staysails and the three mainsail reefs.
The Allures 40.9 has a bowsprit with three functions: the first is to place the anchor far enough forward for a secure and comfortable
The anchor well is deep enough to hold 80 meters of anchor chain and the bowsprit can easily carry a 20 or even 25 kg Rocna or Delta anchor.
Moving around on the deck of the Allures 40.9 is easy, comfortable and reassuring thanks to the wide side decks, the solid handrails on the roof and dodger as well as the lifelines.
The Allures 40.9 can be equipped with cutter rigging, which is a big advantage for blue water cruising, with furlers for both the solent and the staysail. This makes for a sail configuration that can adapt to all types of weather conditions.
Neat design and comfortable equipment
Whether seated or standing, there is a panoramic view of the outside. The natural light streams in through the different portholes, side and hull windows and hatches. Inside the Allures 40.9, the five deck hatches and five opening portholes ensure abundant natural ventilation.
The U-shaped galley, overlooking the saloon, is also well ventilated and has a panoramic view of the outside. You have access to a refrigerator
Directly linked to the galley, the saloon is welcoming and bright. There is a choice between two moods to fully enjoy your life on board.
For large dinner parties, the saloon can accommodate up to 8 people. The centerboard housing is in the center of the saloon, making access and system verifications easy.
The custom designed interior is modern, highlighted by discreet Led lighting and functional upper storage. As everywhere on the boat, inside the storage spaces there are removable backings that allow for access to technical areas.

To aft of the technical room, there is access to the lazaret, the autopilot and the helm mechanism. The space to port is setup for an optional generator or a washing machine.
