Alloy Yachts begins building 56m sailing yacht

The owners of the 52 metre sailing yacht Mondango have again entrusted New Zealand yard Alloy Yachts to build their next yacht - a 56.4 metre flybridge ketch.

It is another design masterminded by Dubois Naval Architects and incorporates a development of their ground-breaking swing lift centreboard, which, with its 4 metre draught, will enable the yacht to slide into shallow lagoons and waterways.

Other features of the yacht will be an aft deck spa pool, a cockpit protected by sliding glass side screens and curved glass doors, and a swimming platform that unfolds from the starboard topsides, while the yacht's two large tenders will be stowed below the foredeck.

For the interior, designers Reymond Langton have worked closely with the owners to create an innovative style that is enhanced by large hull windows, and a layout that includes a midship owner's suite, an impressive galley and even a 103-inch television screen.

Plate-cutting for hull number AY46 began in July 2011 and the yacht is slated to launch in October 2013.
