41m Alloy Yachts sloop Destination sold

2 April 2024 • Written by Nick Jeffery

The 41-metre fast sloop Destination has been sold with Northrop & Johnson's Ann Avery representing the seller and Frank Ficken of Wellington Yachts introducing the buyer.

Designed by Ed Dubois and built by Alloy Yachts in New Zealand, she was delivered in 2001 to MCA compliance. Her 20-year ABS survey was completed in 2021 following a major $4 million refit in 2020.

Destination was asking €11,400,000.

Upgrades included transforming her interior with the re-veneer of the upper saloon and pilothouse bulkheads, using wood from the original stock. Headlinings, floorings and soft furnishings were also all replaced. 

The all-aluminium yacht was also repainted and completed a major rig survey and upgrade, while her engine, generators and systems were refurbished or replaced as necessary. Her eight-year-old teak decks have also recently been thoroughly recaulked. The refit also saw the original Redman Whiteley Dixon interior refreshed by Reymond Langton Design.

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

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

Up 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 cosy 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 al fresco 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 additional custom boarding platform to starboard midships. Part of the hull swings down to provide a safe and stable platform for tender access or watersports. 

The 209 GT sailing yacht has a top speed of 13 knots, 2,800-nautical-mile range and cruising speed of 10 knots.

Destination was asking €11,400,000 and recently featured as BOAT's brokerage boat of the month.
