41m Alloy Yachts sloop Destination listed for sale

19 October 2022• Written by Nick Jeffery

The 41 metre fast sloop Destination, which was designed by Ed Dubois and built by Alloy Yachts in New Zealand, is new to the market with Northrop & Johnson's Ann Avery.

Delivered MCA-compliant in 2001, her 20-year ABS survey was completed in 2021 following a major $4 million refit in 2020. Upgrades included transforming her interior with the re-veneer of the upper saloon-pilothouse bulkheads, using wood from the original stock. Headlinings, floorings and soft furnishings were also all replaced. 

The all-aluminium yacht for sale was also repainted, a major rig survey completed and the rig upgraded, while her engine, generators and systems were refurbished or replaced as necessary. Her eight-year-old teak decks have also recently been thoroughly recaulked.

Destination's interior includes a panoramic upper saloon-pilothouse, with a lounge area with a deep sofa, custom bar and a spacious dining table for eight. Natural light floods into this area through the trademark Dubois wraparound, raked windscreen, and flows down into her main saloon allowing for a light and bright ambience. 

Her main saloon is the dedicated lounging and socializing hub of the yacht, with a large sofa and chairs complemented by a handcrafted coffee table. The interior of this yacht for sale is finished in elegant flame mahogany, lacquered to a high gloss finish. This is balanced with light-coloured fabrics and soft textures.

Seven to eight guests are accommodated in Destination's four elegant cabins. The master suite is full-beam with a king-size bed, plenty of storage and a cozy daybed area. There are two identical staterooms forward, each with centreline queen-size beds and an additional smaller cabin with a single and a Pullman berth. All cabins have en-suite bathrooms.

Destination’s cockpit is accessed from the aft deck between the twin helm stations. To one side is a large lounging sofa and to the other a settee and chairs surround a large table, perfect for alfresco dining. A Bimini covers the cockpit and fold-up clear curtains allow the breeze when desired and can be pulled down to protect from inclement weather.

 A built-in passerelle and an opening transom with a shower and dimmable lighting, provide a platform for tender and water access. One of Destination’s most notable features is her completely custom second boarding platform to starboard midships. Part of the hull swings down to provide a safe and stable platform for tender access or watersports. 

800hp of Caterpillar engine provides for a 14-knot top speed and 2,800 nautical mile range cruising at up to 12 knots.

Destination's asking price is $13,500,000.
