Como's owner is an extremely knowledgeable yachtsman, who has commissioned a succession of vessels at Alloy Yachts. She bears all the hallmarks of a project benefiting from years of experience in the world superyacht fleet. Como lacks for nothing in terms of equipment, luxury or styling, but equally shows her class by avoiding superfluous 'fashion' features.

Designed by Dubois Naval Architects, the 41m (134ft) motoryacht is an accomplished, muscular performer at sea and a stylish headturner in any anchorage. The smooth exterior lines are enhanced by uninterrupted black glass windows sweeping along the main deck and beautifully finished stainless steel louvres wrapping around the aft side coamings and forward superstructure. The permanent composite bimini on the flybridge adds a futuristic flourish, while the matching curved stairways from the aft boarding platform up to the main deck provide a dramatic entrance.

The vessel is powered by twin Caterpillar C30 1550hp diesel engines with a cruise speed of 16 knots, a sprint speed of 17.5 knots and a trans-oceanic range of 4,000 nautical miles.

The interior design is by Redman Whiteley Dixon. The overall impression is of a contemporary space with light pouring in from all sides, enhanced by spectacular white marble floors.

The timber joinery is modern with strong angular lines, while cream silk carpets in selected areas provide a soft contrast to the marble surfaces.

French impressionist artworks add interest throughout the vessel. Subtle texture is provided in timber finishes ranging from satin to gloss varnish with some feature pieces in black piano lacquer. Mahogany and ebony timbers are used extensively.

Flexible accommodation arrangements allow for up to 11 guests in five staterooms. The owners' stateroom is situated forward on the main deck and includes an entry lobby, 'his and hers' bathrooms, a walk-in dressing room, discreet office and lounge area.A styling theme that recurs throughout the vessel is a delicate stainless steel inlay on tables, furniture pieces and on the floors.

Guests are accommodated in four staterooms on the lower deck. Two staterooms have large queen-size beds and two have twin beds. An additional pullman bed is provided in one of the twin-bed cabins. All of the staterooms have ensuite marble bathrooms, silk carpets, entertainment systems, mood lighting and climate control.

Formal dining is on the main deck, with further alfresco dining arrangements on the aft deck and the expansive flybridge. The large lazarette has a teak floor and serves a dual function as garage for the main tender and assorted watersport equipment, and as a fully-equipped gymnasium.

Alloy Yachts

  • What started out as an ambitious project to build a 28m aluminium yacht by a group of New Zealand boat builders in the early 1980s led to the creation of Alloy Yachts just two years later. 

During the 1980s, a 12-13m yacht was considered large by New Zealand standards where the focus was on light displacement, relatively austere, high performance sailing yachts. The use of aluminium for the 28m Chanel (right) and the greater attention to the owner’s desired luxurious finish created a new level of skill and performance amongst the local boat builders involved.
The Chanel project took place on a leased site on the banks of the Henderson Creek in West Auckland, and when completed in 1985, the decision to keep the team together led to the purchase of nearby land and the establishment of Alloy Yachts Ltd. With the next project – the tender launch for the 1987 New Zealand America’s Cup challenge – the foundations for today’s highly-rated aluminium superyacht building team were laid.

Many people involved in those first two projects remain as key members of the Alloy Yachts team, including Tony Hambrook who joined the company as production manager and was asked to take over as managing director in 1990. Through the ‘90s Tony led the team through a period of massive expansion. A series of innovative developments in technology and engineering moved the company up the hierarchy of the world’s superyacht builders. Several yachts mark the advances achieved by the Alloy Yachts team, including the completion of their first yacht over 100ft in length in 1991.
With the first carbon-fibre mast and an efficient fully-battened mainsail, 32.6m Esprit featured the transfer of technology from America’s Cup design into the superyacht cruising domain. Sailing performance on 33.2m Espada was enhanced with pioneering in-boom furling systems. Alloy’s ground-breaking marine power system featured on 33.6m Imagine, allowing the use of any shore power system around the world and for long periods of total quiet onboard. Launched in 1994, 34.75m Corinthian was the first to have a concealed anchoring system.
