Alliage yachts

Long go the days where Alliage were one of my preferred aluminum 41ft sailboat. The brand had abandoned the smaller cruising market and today his smaller boat has 45fts but the really are pointing tho bigger models.

They have two ranges, one with non ballasted centerboarders (like OVNI; Boreal or Allures) and another one that they call Azzuro, with a lifting keel. All the boats are beautiful and well designed by Berret Racoupeau, kind of "chic" voyage boat, but not less effective. I still like them a lot even if regret they finish making smaller boats:

Who would say this baby has already 14 year's old:



The 41 had already a two rudder set up.

Have a look at the Alliage 53



and to their two lines (very nice boats):

Azzuro 53 Voiliers De Voyage Aluminium De La Gamme Azzuro

Today they belong to the Alubat group, the ones that make OVNI and its their "luxury" brand. These ones are supposed to be "yachts" already while the OVNI are just sailboats
