Kiwi classics: 6 of the best Alloy Yachts

Kiwi classics: 6 of the best Alloy Yachts

5 of 6 5/6

Kokomo III

Commissioned by competitive yachtsman Lang Walker, the third yacht to be built at Alloy bearing the name Kokomo hit the water for the first time in 2010 measuring 58.4 metres. Long-term yard collaborator Dubois Naval Architects calculated that the best way to ensure high performance was not by reducing on-board weight, but by increasing the draught.

As a result, Kokomo III features a 100-tonne bulb fitted at the end of a 30-tonne keel that can be extended from 4.8 metres to 8.1 metres below the surface. This freed up interior designer RWD to create an opulent yet contemporary décor with marble bathrooms and bars as well as a ten-person wenge dining table.
