The Allures 52 is a prestige yacht for true long-distance cruising.

It is also an innovative project, the fruits of a collaboration between boat builders, designers and yachtsmen. Everyone, whether they are professionals, experts or just passionate sailors dream of a unique and accomplished yacht. They wanted a yacht which reflected the spirit of the times and fulfilled the aspirations of the modern yachtsman. Only a safe and comfortable yacht, quick and elegant, could get them dreaming.

The yachtsmen, whether famous or not as well-known, who contributed to the development of the Allures 52 prepared an uncompromising set of specifications:

The pleasure of sailing without limits in complete safety aboard a yacht which is simple, lively, fast and elegant,
The pleasure of a boat truly designed for living on board.

We took up this challenge by drawing on the convincing experience acquired over the last ten years. The innovative ideas developed by our shipyard enabled us to take it on successfully. It was through discoveries and technical developments that the objectives set for the 52 were finally exceeded.

The entire team at Allures Yachting is proud to reveal our flagship yacht, designed to sail the world's oceans with an exceptional level of safety, comfort and elegance.

Safety, Power, and Elegance

Three words that help to summarize the design and execution of the Allures Yachting line. Below we’ve detailed many of the features that serve to bring those adjectives together into the picture of a modern, ocean-going yacht.

Strength & Safety
Strong yet lightweight rounded aluminum hull.
Watertight bulkheads enhance safety.
Well thought out layout with handholds throughout
Dual wheels for excellent visibility.
Wide, maneuverable decks.

Ballast tanks extend tankage and boost upwind performance.
Retractable centerboard delivers access to shallow harbors and enables you to beach the yacht.
Dual rudders for stability, steering responsiveness, and beach-ability.
S-Drive motor is lower maintenance, quiet, and responsive under power.

Twin seat navigation station – so you both can chart the course.
Multiple cabin configurations fit your style.
Many customizable options.
Sleek and elegant, inside and out.

High capacity water and fuel tanks extend your cruising range.
Copious storage for all the necessities and toys.
Large sail locker increases your options while keeping the cabin clear.
Solar panels integrated into the design, not a bolted on afterthought.

Composite topsides enhance insulation and lead to beautiful, fluid lines.
Rounded aluminum hull is sleek and stylish.
Light, bright, and inviting interior spaces.


The three Peyron brothers chose the Allures 44 for their expeditions to the far North; Michel Desjoyaux advised the Allures Yachting team on the design of their boats. It goes without saying that we are proud of the confidence these sailors have placed in us.

Allures Yachting, founded in 2003 by Xavier Desmaret and Stéphan Constance, is enjoying great success. These two engineers who dreamt of designing the perfect boat for a round-the-world trip placed their whole range in our hands. This confidence gave rise to innovative lifting keel centreboards which benefit from combining a robust aluminium hull with the comfort and elegance of a composite superstructure. Berret-Racoupeau Yacht Design develop, design and create both the exterior and interior designs of the Allures.


We were looking for an ocean-going yacht which would answer a sailor's legitimate requirements within the limits of a reasonable budget, which is:
safe in the toughest of conditions,
high-performance and enjoyable at the wheel,
adaptable to all moorings,
comfortable and user-friendly,
elegant (interior as well as exterior).

Within our budget we soon realized there was hardly any choice available. Day after day we met sailors who had come to the same conclusions: our requirements and our dreams were the same, but there was no yacht yet to fulfill them. So we founded Allures Yachting.

For months prior to reaching the concept of our boats, we had hours of fascinating discussions with a wide range of sailors - some anonymous, others famous - and integrated our own experiences, acquired through thousands of miles over the seas of the world.

Close analysis of all these experiences gave us our key principles:
aluminium for safety,
a centerboard for increased freedom,
GRP superstructure for performance, comfort and elegance

Along these lines we have been developing a range of sail yachts designed to fulfill all your yearnings.
Our range includes the Allures 39.9, 45 and now the new Allures 52.

The yard experienced an outstanding growth, with a turnover which almost doubled each and every year during the first six years.

With the take over of Outremer (simple, fast, sea-worthy blue-water catamarans) in 2007 and Garcia (custom aluminium yachts ranging from 50 to 115') in 2010, our group has reached a leading position in the long distance cruising sailboat industry.
