| | RE: Luhrs Allura
The allura is very lightly built boat. The most experience I have is with an Allura 35 that I surveyed for an old friend to be used as a charter boat. This boat had twin 315hp Yanmars and I'm figuring the boat you looking at has a single inboard Perkins or something similar. Anyway the boat surveyed Ok but in commercial service he managed to completely destroy it in six years. I mean destroyed it, F'd.. toast,, done ,, todos. Moisture ingress to the keel, transom and decks is a real threat. If the boat has a generator it may be surgically implanted. The engines if twins may be very difficult to work on. Just remember that the attraction to a Luhrs has always been that you get a lot of boat for the money. I also remember that the boat rode and fished well. Its also true that they are popular in Bermuda. The little alluras have cored hulls. Please get the very best surveyor money can buy. I have seen nice ones and some not-so-nice ones. Ride it and if you like it survey her.
