Safety Jackets but no Shoes or Hard Hats

The ‘elf of safety takes a holiday

The 58.4-metre Kokomo has been launched in New Zealand where clearly European standards of ‘elf and Safety cut little ice. Photographs released by MCM her managers showing her mast being stepped amid a spaghetti of cables clearly show the fitting out crew wearing Safety Jackets but no shoes or hard hats.

Designed by Dubois Naval Architects with interior by Redman Whiteley Dixon, she is set to be delivered by Alloy Yachts in late February 2010 – in time for her owners to watch the Louis Vuitton Trophy (9-21 March).

MCM founding partner, Peter Wilson says: “It was very exciting to see this, our largest yacht to date, roll gracefully down the slipway and be launched in Henderson and then to make her way to deeper waters on the Auckland waterfront for commissioning. Not only is this our largest launch to date under management but also it is the largest for Dubois, Alloy, Southern Spars and Doyle Sails NZ.”
