Kiwi classics: 6 of the best Alloy Yachts

Kiwi classics: 6 of the best Alloy Yachts

1 of 6 1/6


In memory of the late Tony Hambrook, we’ve been through our archives and picked out six of his yard Alloy Yachts’ finest creations.

Where better to start than with the yard’s flagship, the monumental 67.2 metre ketch Vertigo? Launched in 2011, she was met with widespread critical acclaim, being named sailing yacht of the year at the 2012 World Superyacht Awards.
