Alloy Yachts has launched superyacht Encore, a 43.9m Dubois designed sloop. Encore was built for experienced Alloy customers and will now spend the coming weeks in commissioning mode before being handed over to the owners in late June. The contract for this new-build superyacht was signed at the end of 2010.
Repeat customers, the owners have spent the last 14 years cruising the world aboard AY8 Eclipse. Their love of Eclipse and the long relationship they have had with the people at Alloy Yachts convinced them that it was time to return to the yard and build another.
Their brief was for a bigger, more modern and faster version of what they currently have, while incorporating the qualities they love about Eclipse into a larger yacht.
A notable feature that the new yacht will have is the same style of stepped transom as the 20 year old Eclipse. The steps provide a wonderful extension to the outdoor living area and provide a perfect spot for fishing or just hanging out and watching the wake while underway.
AY45 is designed by Dubois Naval Architects and has an interior designed by the Alloy Yachts Interior Design team along with the owners.
