Hey Jude Alloy Yachts AY54

Alloy Yachts launched 44.1m "Hey Jude"

New Zealand-based luxury yacht builder Alloy Yachts (out of business now) launched the 44.1m motor yacht "Hey Jude" with a GT of under 500.

The exterior of Hey Jude was designed by Sam Sorgiovanni. It was the first time that the yard collaborated with him. Redman Whitely Dixon is responsible for the interior design. Alloy Yachts’ managing director Tony Hambrook commented that the work with the design team and the owner’s representatives David McQueen and the yacht’s captain Paul Maguire were a confident team of vast experience.

David McQueen commented:

“Working with Alloy Yachts was an absolute pleasure. Your professional team made this project a satisfying experience that we hope to be able to repeat.”

Hey Jude will be delivered in December 2014 to her owners.

PS46 by Philippe Briand & Alloy Yachts

Philippe Briand & Alloy Yachts introduces PS46

PS46 - developed by Philippe Briand and Alloy Yachts as a full engineered turnkey project with several options to customize the yacht.

The PS46 is ready to commence build immediately and is offered with a reduced build time. The design has been developed to cater to those owners looking for a high-quality individual build, without the time and cost that a full custom boat usually demands.

With Philippe Briand and Alloy Yachts having many years expertise in sailboat design and construction the PS46 is set to be a winning formula. The design represents many of the most popular features of their respective award winning fleets.

Naval Architect Philippe Brians comments:

“I believe the 46 m should be a very attractive size for owners. At this length, our design offers a roomier interior, raised up saloon and a huge owner’s private space in all of the three versions of the layout. She is also the largest performing “PANAMAX” sloop we can design, her mast reaching the limit of 62.5 m above the water (performance version). Together with my team, we are very happy to bring all of our experience to the design of the PS46 and to collaborate, from inception, with such a highly skilled team such as Alloy yachts. We are confident that we will create together the best of the PS46’s.”

Tony Hambrook, Managing Director of Alloy Yachts added:

“Fully optimized, with all engineering design work complete, this exciting design offers our customers the quality and individuality of a custom build, at a fixed cost without the time investment that a custom build often requires”

Following the successful launch of the multiple award-winning 67m Vertigo, this partnership between Alloy and Briand was a natural fit. Briand have designed more than 20 super sailing yachts and Alloy Yachts has built more than 40 of them.

The striking 46M is a fast performance sloop design. Speed on the water is an important requirement for many owners and Briand’s expertise in streamlined fast hulls lends itself perfectly to this project.

With the overall design and engineering set, the PS46 design can be personalized to her owner in several ways. The base sail package can be further optimized with an optional race upgrade that includes a PANAMAX rig, carbon rigging and extended sail plan. Owners can choose between three distinct interior design packages developed by the Alloy Interior Design Team for the ultimate luxury and comfort on board.

The collaboration between Philippe Briand and Alloy Yachts promises a very good yacht.

Mondango 3 Alloy Yachts Sailing

56m Mondango 3 by Alloy Yachts

The 56.4m cruising ketch Mondango 3 was launched by Alloy Yachts from New Zealand last year.

Mondango 3 is the second project by the experienced owners in the collaboration between Alloy Yachts, Dubois and Reymond Langton.

4.7 meters longer than her predecessor, Mondango 3 is a sleek and elegant design that will take her owners around the world. A fresh and timeless interior has maximized the voluminous interior space. Her owners will enjoy a central full beam suite accessed by an impressive lobby. Guests will be accommodated in two VIP double cabins and two twin cabins. A spacious and light-filled main saloon will be a focal social space on the yacht, which will be chartered out as well as being used privately by her owners.

Although primarily focused on comfortable long range cruising, Mondango 3 has been designed to perform well on the water. Southern Spars and North Sails have collaborated once again on her rig and sails. The inclusion of a swing keel centerboard will allow the yacht to access shallow drafts and remote anchorages, but with increased stability and performance when out at sea.

Key features on board Mondango 3 include:

  • A swing keel centerboard, allowing easy access to shallow drafts
  • Twin sub-deck tender wells
  • Aft deck spa pool
  • Hydraulic Powered Spray Dodger to flybridge helm positions
  • Rotating Thrusters to allow athwartships and ahead or astern propulsion
  • Sided Boarding Platform – pocketed into hull

Yard Statement

Tony Hambrook – Managing Director of Alloy Yachts

“Alloy Yachts is very proud to have built Mondango 3, it is a great compliment to us that her owners chose to return to the yard to build for the second time. As the latest in the fleet of individual custom yachts built by Alloy Yachts, Mondango 3 is a striking yacht that perfectly reflects the vision of her owners.”

Designers Statements

“It has been a great privilege to have been entrusted with the design of the 56.4m ketch Mondango 3. She has exceeded my expectations in all respects, which is I think is largely due to the huge experience that the owners were able to share during that design process.

Recent sea trials have provided a glimpse of what this truly exceptional ocean-going ketch will be capable of under that command of here seafaring owners. I first met the owners in 2005 to discuss the design for the previous Mondango 2. Hopefully, after a period of extensive cruising, the owners will feel that we have managed to build on this earlier success. To continue my close relationship with these knowledgeable clients, and the wonderfully capable team at Alloy Yachts has been a great pleasure.”

Pascale Reymond of Reymond Langton Design (Interior Designer)

“The design of Mondango 3 builds on the successful relationships and themes forged during the construction of the client’s previous boat. The original layout is re-imagined with many elements carried over into the new design – the dramatic radial pattern of the floor and ceiling in the main saloon, the combination of oak and leather are familiar, but in a lighter, refreshing character that goes hand in hand with an organic, sweeping architecture that adds both beauty and soft-edged practicality to a sailing boat that will be used for extensive open water cruising. The main feature wood, oak, now in a brighter, bleached finish, is combined with delicate palm wood inlays and contrasts with the rich ziracote furniture. Leather is prominent throughout the yacht; bespoke textured taupe leather accents the main architecture, dramatic carved leather artwork panels by Silverlining are a highlight of the Main Saloon and intricate stitching on the main balustrade emphasizes the attention to detail found throughout. Colour adds the finishing touch, the guest suites are carefully co- ordinated to give each their own identity; striking, full height backlit glass art panels by DKT feature in the Saloon and lobbies, whilst the arced, overlapping wall panels of the Owner’s Suite, with a bespoke Based Upon finish create eye-catching lighting features.”
