Alloy sailing yacht Nuberu Blau sold
by Malcolm Maclean
Nuberu Blau was built in New Zealand by Alloy Yachts and was designed by Dubois Naval Architects. Formerly known as Kokomo of London she was the fifth Dubois design to be commissioned by the same owner. Delivered in 2000 she was the seventh Dubois design to be built by Alloy Yachts — a partnership which has now produced more than 20 yachts.
Her luxurious interior was designed by Redman Whiteley Dixon. She offers accommodation for up to eight guests in four staterooms consisting of a master suite, two VIP staterooms and a twin cabin, all with en suite facilities.
Cherry wood panelling set into fabric panelled bulkheads creates a calm and inviting space in her expansive interior and all the pieces of furniture, made by Alloy Yachts, are also in cherry wood with lightly detailed panelling. Comprehensive refits in 2009 and 2011 have ensured that she is ready for her new owner in fine condition.
Under power, a 1,085hp MTU engine gives her a range of 3,500 nautical miles at her cruising speed of 10 knots.
"Without doubt, she is a superior yacht with plenty of pedigree," Camper & Nicholsons commented. "She combines a clever and luxurious layout with high performance."
Nuberu Blau was asking €5.7 million.
