1981 Santa Cruz 50 Allure

Allure is an excellent Santa Cruz 50. She has a low drag, low VCG keel and many other features. Just add food and water and she is ready for the 2015 Transpac!!

The Santa Cruz 50s were designed by boat wizard, Bill Lee, who believes Fast is Fun, and this vessel has been carefully engineered and constructed for speed and safety. Bill Lee has proven over the years with his success in big boat races, that by using well known proven materials and methods, quality craftsman and thoughtful design, you can have a light, strong, safe, and fast boat.

The hand-laminated, multiple layered hull and deck have vacuum bagged balsa core providing stiffness and strength without unnecessary weight. Her keel is solid lead casting encased in fiberglass, bolted and bonded to the hull for extra crunch protection. Navtec rod rigging and U bolt chainplates are used on the triple spreader tapered mast for maximum strength. All bulkheads and interior cabinetry are bonded directly to the hull and woodwork finished in top quality mahogany plywood.

A yacht with the rare combination of impeccably built cruiser and speedy, strong racer is a unique find, in a class of her own just waiting for you to enjoy the adventure and leave the others in your wake!
