The Yacht

Sailing superyacht for private charter.

Built in aluminium in 2010 by Alloy Yachts to a design by Dubois, an elegant and contemporary interior by Redman Whiteley Dixon accommodates up to 12 guests in five cabins. Carbon fibre sails by Doyle Stratis include the largest asymmetric sail ever made at 2,159m2. Automatic glass screens around the cockpit allow for a complete climate controlled environment.

KOKOMO is third same-named yacht the team has collaborated on – and equally important, she’s the largest sailing yacht ever to be built in New Zealand! Designed by Dubois Naval Architects, which also designed the previous two builds for this owner and Alloy Yachts, Kokomo is a fast flying-bridge sloop. Besides marking a successful re-teaming of an owner, builder, and designer, she marks several significant milestones, many stemming from her owner’s emphasis on performance under a variety of conditions:

– she’s the 20th Dubois design built by Alloy
– her mast is the largest to date from Southern Spars, rising 74.3 meters (244 feet); it’s also the longest autoclave mast in existence
– her sails are the largest set ever made by Doyle Sails; the asymmetric gennaker alone is 2,227 square meters (more than 23,970 square feet), also the largest the company has ever made
– she features the largest captive winches that Alloy has made thus far (it casts all its own winches)
– the raise/lower ballasted keel design is new for both Alloy Yachts and Dubois: a keel tower comes up through the yacht’s center, permitting the entire bulb to be raised and lowered
– she’s the first Alloy to feature submarine anchors – launched and retrieved from the underside of the hull; underwater lights and cameras allow the process to be monitored, with the electronics linked to Alloy Yachts’ trademark SeaTouch monitoring system
– her vast teak foredeck stretches all the way aft to the mast and is clutter-free due to plentiful under-deck storage for tenders (two of which were custom-made), their launching cranes, and sailing equipment alike
– even the spa pool is inset into the foredeck, conveniently fitted with a teak cover when not in use.
