Hey Jude will be handed over to her owners in December 2014


The New Zealand based, Alloy Yachts has launched their latest build, the 44.1m Hey Jude.

At just under 500gt, AY54 slipped into the water in front of 300+ Alloy Yachts employees, invited VIP guests and the yacht’s owners.

Designed by Sam Sorgiovanni of Australia with an interior by British based Redman Whitely Dixon, Hey Jude is the first Sorgiovanni design that the yard has built.

Speaking on behalf of the builder Managing Director Tony Hambrook commented that the Designers along with the owner’s representative, David McQueen and yacht Captain Paul Maguire were a confident team of vast experience – able to make decisions and action developments based on their extensive knowledge of the owners and of the boat building process.

The owner’s representative, David McQueen said at the launch, “Working with Alloy Yachts was an absolute pleasure. Their professional team made this project a satisfying experience that we hope to be able to repeat.”

Hey Jude will be handed over to her owners in December 2014.

Alloy Yachts who recently announced job losses is presently actively working with brokers and potential owners to secure the next contract.

The staff and management at Alloy Yachts are looking forward to a long summer break after completing such a complex and challenging build project.
