Slipping into a turquoise blue lagoon, isolating yourself inside, landing on the white sand of a deserted beach – if the centreboarder didn’t exist, it would have to be invented, for all sailors who love freedom.
The freedom of the seafarer
At Allures Yachting, a variable draft, and therefore a reduced draft when required, has always been a must for an ocean cruising yacht.
The advantages of a centerboard
The centreboarder has therefore established itself as the ideal solution for discovering the most isolated places, whatever the depth of water. With ballast below, your Allures is as stable with the board up or down, allowing you to sail in the most paradise-like lagoons. If you touch the bottom unexpectedly, the board goes up into its well, with nothing more serious than a small fright. When the wind is forecast to be particularly strong, by being able to get as close to the coast as possible, or even by entering a lagoon or lagoon that is inaccessible to keelboats, you will be the best protected.
In tidal regions, the possibility of taking the ground allows you to stay in areas which twice a day, offer as many different landscapes, and the luxury of walking around your boat. More pragmatically, you will also be able to carry out a visual inspection and any small intervention on the hull, rudders or propeller in complete autonomy.
But the advantages of the centreboarder are not limited being close to the coast. It is also gives incomparable comfort at sea, due to a great softness of movement, very appreciable in rough seas. Indeed, the particularly well centred weight, the absence of either a pendulum or tripping effect caused by ballast at the tip of the keel, make your Allures, whatever the weather, a real magic carpet..
