Less than a month after the launch of the 44m super yacht Imagine, Alloy Yachts out of New Zealand is already getting started on another, the AY44 super motor yacht. This World Explorer class will be able to find the far reaches of the world without compromising safety or comfort, and is scheduled for launch sometime in 2012. The interior of the AY 44 will be designed buy Redman Whitely Dixon, and the owner’s representative, Peter Wilson, who is seen regularly around this shipyard. Here are some of the features that AY44 will have.
When empty, the LWL will be just 36.03 meters, at full load 39.16. The maximum beam size is almost nine meters, with just over eight and a half at the water line. It will have a draft of just 2.7 meters. It will be powered by twin Caterpillar C32 ACERT “C” rated diesel engines. There is expected to be four full decks, as well as a set of stairs leading up to the navigational equipment, high in the crow’s nest. As it is just being started in construction, there is not a lot of detailed information that has been released yet.
