Alloy Yachts has recently developed in collaboration with Philippe Briand, a phenomenal 46m fully engineered turnkey, coupled with a variety of interior design options to be chosen by the owner. The PS46's aim is to provide the owner of high quality, built to their personal tastes but avoiding the time and cost a full personalized project demands. The shipyard is prepared to begin the construction of the vessel immediately, with the possibilities of reduced building time if necessary and of a race regatta upgrade if desired. This phenomenal project was presented at the recent Monaco Yacht Show 2013.

Alloy Yachts is world widely renowned for their achievements in sailboat design and construction, as well as for the general quality and individuality in construction of past vessels, which prides itself for incorporating popular and state-of-the-art concepts and technologies, leading to world-class, award-winning designs.

Tony Hambrook, Managing Director of Alloy Yachts, stated recently that "Fully optimized, with all engineering design work complete, the exciting PS46's design offers our customers the quality and individuality of a custom build, at a fixed cost and without the time investment that a custom build often requires."

As stated before, the PS46 is a collaboration between Alloy Yachts shipyard and the talented Phillipe Briand, although it is not the first time they have combined efforts. Another previous project, the breath-taking 67.2m Vertigo, proved their partnership to be an assured success, one they are determined to repeat.

Regarding the PS46, although the overall design and engineering aspects are set, the owner will be able to alter the yacht in several other aspects. Some of the possible changes which could be made are the sails, which can be further optimized with a race upgrade which includes a Panamax rig, carbon rigging and an extended sail plan, and the interior design, by choosing one of the luxurious design packages developed by the Alloy Interior Design Team.

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.
