Broker’s Comments

French Allures Yachting are well known worldwide for their long-distance sailing yachts built of aluminium. Aluminium is a well proven material, used in many different constructions where both precision and strength are important, e.g. for sophisticated constructions, aircraft, vehicles and ships. Ships for coast guard, fishing, ferries and special vessels are now often built in aluminium.

The sailing yachts from Allures Yachting are equipped with a centreboard, also known as a lifting keel. The basic idea of an aluminium sailing yacht with a lifting keel can be summarized as follows; an aluminium hull is good for tough weather at sea and it provides great safety. Aluminium does not absorb water, so the yacht can stay in the water all year round and is not affected by ice and cold. Aluminium itself forms a protective oxide layer on the surface, which gives a minimum of maintenance. The lifting keel gives flexible draft, trim options during sailing and reduced risk of damages in the event of grounding. This combination is excellent for coastal and long-distance cruising and especially for sailing at high latitudes and Arctic waters.

Allures 39.9, YMIR was launched in the spring of 2013, at the boatyard in Cherbourg, France and the owner sailed YMIR home to Norway. After that, the yacht has sailed in Norwegian waters but also on some longer trips to Shetland, the Faroe Islands, Iceland, Jan Mayen and Svalbard.

The owner specified very carefully the equipment and layout on board, prior to the cruising that was planned and therefore YMIR is well equipped for long-distance cruising with regard to both safety and sailing ‘single handed’. YMIR is equipped with two autopilots, four different options for generating electricity for consumption and charging and has a well-thought-out navigation and communication systems. YMIR also benefits from a ‘technical’ cabin, to stb. aft, with well-organized storage for easy locating of spare parts and tools. There is also a workbench.

Furling jib at the inner forestay and furling genoa at the headstay gives effortless flexible sailing and for downwind sailing there is a Parasailor, which is a very easy-to-handle spinnaker for a small crew. YMIR has a fixed windshield in front of the cockpit, which is common on yachts from the Orust boatyards, and sprayhood with a ‘Drop-back’. This offers gives excellent weather protection and two completely dry locations at the front of the cockpit in bad weather.

From the description above and the equipment list, it is clear that YMIR is exceptionally well-planned and prepared for coastal and open sea sailing and very suitable for Scandinavian and northern waters. The owner has very good knowledge of the yacht and experience of the equipment, which has been maintained in top working order throughout her ownership.

YMIR is located in her home port at Lofoten, in northern Norway and the yacht can be viewed by appointment.
