For the past 15 years Boréal have been building these distinctive aluminium cruising yachts and have gained a large following from around the world. All Boréal’s are built for serious bluewater sailing with a simple deck layout that’s easy to manage with a small crew. LUMINA is the perfect example of the ever popular Boréal 47. The 47 has many clever designs and one of the standout design features is its well-executed doghouse offering a pilothouse with a portside nav station inside the heated cabin giving excellent visibility while still at cockpit level.
Another standout design is the boat’s centerboard, which drops down to 8 feet but can be lifted to 3ft offering access to shallower anchorages while being designed to sit on its hull when the tide runs out.

On deck she is full of practical details that serve to make life easier and safer at sea: including safety railings to either side of the mast for extra security working forward, a massive lazarette and single large wheel with bow thruster making manoeuvring a breeze. On the foredeck there’s plenty of deck space and large sail locker. LUMINA is fitted with a double-spreader masthead rig with a Sparcraft aluminum mast and boom with stainless steel wire rigging and a pair of headsails, both on Profurl furlers, the inner forestay flies a self-tacking jib and an outer forestay a larger genoa.
Down below forward of the doghouse there is a raised saloon to port with seating on all three sides offering a good view of the outside world and to port there is a well laid out galley.
Further forward there is a large and comfy owner’s cabin with en-suite heads while aft there two cabins with twin bunks in each. As you would expect there is plenty of storage space throughout that’s ideal for longer distance sailing.
LUMINA is as new throughout and done very little sailing for her purpose. These yachts often don’t come up for sale on the brokerage market and with the yard in Brittany having a long waiting list for new build, LUMINA offers a new owner the chance to set sail today on many new adventures.
