Kokomo is the third superyacht from Alloy Yachts for the same owner. The brief was for a yacht that would break new ground in performance, comfort and style.

Designed by Dubois Naval Architects, this 58m sloop delivers in all respects. Her sleek hull has been refined for seakeeping and speed. Her 120 tonne keel lowers from less than 5m to over 8m to deliver ultimate stability under an enormous sail plan.

Kokomo is a yacht that will storm across oceans, turn heads in any anchorage and cocoon owners and guests in a welcoming and supremely elegant environment.

Redefining the edges of superyacht technology

Delivering the blend of high performance, comfort and reliability required in a yacht of this sophistication demanded thousands of hours of research and development.

Renowned for its high standards of in-house engineering and manufacturing, the Alloy Yachts team relished the challenge.

Among many innovations, the keel system, submarine anchors and a hull structure and equipment able to absorb tremendous sailing loads were priorities.

In every detail, from deck hardware, to electronics and custom interior joinery, the bar was raised to new heights.

Flawless finishing and craftsmanship

Redman Whiteley Dixon designed an interior combining tradition with modern styling and values. Selecting sustainable materials, the design retains rich timber paneling and superbly crafted joinery.

Yet the interpretation is fresh and new, fully utilising the generous spaces. Large windows allow light to pour through the interior and afford panoramic views.

Dark wenge timbers, light forest teaks, leather and satin nickel combine with earthy soft fabrics to texture the interior. Alloy's skilled craftsmen have responded to the design with flawless detailing.

An ambience of quiet elegance and style

Kokomo accommodates 12 guests in five luxurious staterooms. Each stateroom is complemented with a marble ensuite bathroom and has access to the yacht's comprehensive entertainment system.

Lined drawers, contemporary hardware and lighting, leather-wrapped handrails and door handles underline the high level of quality detailing.

A crew of 12 is accommodated in six ensuite cabins in the service area of the yacht forward of the main saloon. A restaurant-style galley is fully-equipped to cater to every taste.

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.
