Last Saturday Alloy Yachts launched their latest yacht, the 34m (111ft) VvS1. With her dark grey hull and square lines she looks like a small naval vessel. The yacht was designed by Gregory C Marshall Naval Architects for a local client and she will be fitted out during the next months at the Viaduct Harbour in Auckland.
VvS1 was built in aluminium and complies with the Lloyds Register SSC Rules and the Large Yacht Code. She has a 7.78 m ( 25.5 ft) beam, waterline length of 30.14 m ( 99 ft) and a draft of 2.23m ( 7.3 ft). The yacht is powered by twin 475 HP Caterpillar B rated engines and two Caterpillar 51kW generators operate the ship's onboard systems. With a fuel capacity of 34,000 litres she can reach 3110 nm at a speed of 13 knots.
The interior design has been developed by Gregory C Marshall, Alloy Yachts in-house team and the owner. She has a modern and minimilistic interior, including bamboo and ebony floors with lime washed walls.
Two tenders are stored on the bridge deck, aft of the sky gymnasium. One of these is a 6.5 metre craft decked out for serious fishing - powered by a 150hp Yamaha outboard.
