For the first time in four years, Williams & Smithells, the international yacht brokerage and new yachts agent for Allures Yachting lift keel yachts, will be exhibiting at the 2012 PSP Southampton Boat Show, bringing with it the UK debut of the Allures 45 lift keel blue water cruising yacht.
The Allures 45 is specifically designed for long distance sailing and features a lifting keel, with a rounded aluminium hull for fast, safe cruising. Aluminium is lighter than many other hull materials, ensuring lower fuel consumption and exceptional speed on the water, whilst providing high resistance to impact and corrosion.
The yacht has also been fitted with an integral centreboard, high fuel and water capacity tanks, a crash box and watertight bulkhead for maximum peace-of-mind whilst on the water.
Mark Ellyatt of Williams & Smithells said: “We’re delighted to be returning to the Southampton Boat Show after a four-year break. Allures Yachting is renowned for its innovative designs and advanced technologies, and the Allures 45 is no exception. Throughout the duration of the show, we will be welcoming visitors to step on-board this modern, blue water sailing yacht to experience its elegant appearance and spacious interior first-hand.”
The Allures 45 is fitted with an advance technology steering system and streamlined twin rudders with NACA profiles.
The yacht’s interior is perfectly suited to life at sea. The spacious environment provides a comfortable and elegant living area, practical storage solutions and large portholes create a light, uncluttered area to relax in.
The Allures 45 is available in three standard versions to cater for the needs of all offshore sailing enthusiasts, this includes an owner’s version, cruising version and family version, each of which can be customised to meet individual requirements.
