Alloy yachts plans to continue the tradition and legacy of their previous yacht Imagine I with their new yacht Imagine II. Imagine I, launched in 1993 and designed by Dubois, was a landmark yacht for the Alloy group. Imagine changed a lot of things for both Dubois and Alloy, as both the companies received global recognition after its launch. Alloy yachts made Imagine I, the very first yacht for a non-New Zealand owner. Word spread about the magnificence of the yacht and since then there was no looking back for both Dubois and Alloy. For instance, Alloy yachts had fewer than 40 people when it made Imagine I, now it employs more than 340 people.

Imagine I was an extremely successful yacht with its magnificent design, amazing speed and unimaginable luxury. An absolute seaworthy yacht, Imagine was innovative in both interior and exterior aspects. It also won 1994 Nioulargue regatta along with many other trophies and received accolades wherever it went. The yacht has sailed almost all corners of the world.

Imagine II is somewhat an upgraded version of Imagine I. The yacht is a bit longer at 44 meters and is advanced in various aspects such as hull form, keel and rig design, performance and interior layout. However, it is the yacht’s style that connects it back to her forebear. One of the most anticipated yachts, Imagine II is supposed to be launched in the year 2010. With a gap of 17 years between the two sister yachts, Imagine II is sure to deliver equal extravaganza and delight that her forebear delivered.

Additional Information on Imagine II

Imagine II will have a beam of 9.38m (30.8ft) with a displacement of 260 tonnes. Below the waterline it is mounted with a dagger board, which has a draft of 4.3m (14.1ft) with the board up and 6.0m (19.6ft) with the board down. The yacht will be built to Lloyds Classification and will comply with the Large Commercial Yacht Code LY2.

The interiors of the yacht will be done by the Alloy Yachts Interior Design team and will feature contemporary style with light-colored timber joinery. It will have a total of four cabins, which will include an owner’s suite and three guest suites, all with ensuite facilities. It will have three additional cabins for the crew, all with en-suites and will have a crew capacity of 6.

Imagine II will have a carbon fiber mast made by Southern Spars, with in-boom furling and a complete composite EC6+ rigging package. Moreover, it will also have 3DL sails by North, which will be handled by captive and vertical winches designed and built by Alloy Yachts. Headsail fullers will be contributed by Reckmann hydraulic units.

For the propulsion system, the yacht will have C18 873hp Caterpillar diesel engine that will drive a variable pitch propeller. Also, 90hp TRAC bow and stern thrusters will assist in close-quarters maneuvers. The yacht will also be fitted with two 67kw Northern Lights generators. The Alloy Yachts custom SeaTouch system will also be installed with touch screen monitors to indicate systems and alarm status throughout the yacht.
