Soon after SY Kokomo was launched from Alloy Yachts Bay 6, the space was back in use as the team started construction on a 47m flybridge motoryacht. The award-winning team of Alloy Yachts, Dubois Naval Architects and Donald Starkey Design is working together again to build the spacious motoryacht. The same team created Allogante, now known as Loretta Anne, which won the 2009 ISS Award for the best 24-40m motoryacht.
"This is the third Alloy Yachts-built motoryacht our client has owned and we will again enjoy working with the owner to create a beautiful vessel which exceeds expectations" says managing director, Tony Hambrook.
AY43, is scheduled to be delivered in early 2012. The 47m yacht has four staterooms, an owners?€? suite, spa pool and gymnasium.
The yacht's homeport will be the Bahamas, hence the shallow draft of just 2.2m. The addition of zero-speed stabilisers adds to the vessel's suitability for luxurious and comfortable anchoring. Another feature is the enclosed flybridge where the side windows can be raised and lowered to ensure the comfort of the owner and guests.
The yacht is being built to Lloyd's classification 100 A1 SSC YACHT MONO G6 MCH (<500 gross tonnes) and LY2 and will have a cruising speed of 14.5 kts.
