The Alloy Yachts Story

The Story of Alloy Yachts

Ambitious Shipbuilder

The Alloy Yachts shipyard was founded in 1985, following an ambitious project to build a 28-metre performance sailing yacht in West Auckland, New Zealand. The yacht, Chanel, had been constructed of lightweight aluminium and featured a luxury interior that had required the builders to establish a new standard of fit and finish. The success of this launch persuaded the local yacht-building team to form Alloy Yachts, Ltd.

The Story of Alloy Yachts


One of the original build team, the late Tony Hambrook was named managing director of Alloy Yachts in 1989 and guided the shipyard for the next 27 years. During this time Alloy increased its capacity for constructing larger luxury yachts, with deliveries that included sailing yachts longer than 67m and motor yachts up to 47m in length.
