Superyacht Supremos

“New Zealand is fast becoming one of the world’s biggest centres for superyacht construction, with its low-cost high-tech designs.” Alloy Yachts is the world’s 2nd largest manufacturer of superyachts: advantages that make the sailing smooth include lower exchange rates and labour costs, complete in-house production, successfully applied carbon-fibre technology from the America’s Cup and a revolutionary “in-boom furling” sail management system. Their recently completed Victoria of Strathearn was voted “Best Sailing Yacht over 38 metres for the year 2000” by superyacht magazine Showboats International.
