The 44m (145ft) performance cruising sloop Imagine II is currently under construction at Alloy Yachts in Auckland, New Zealand.

Imagine II is a development of the highly successful 33.6m (110ft) sloop Imagine built at Alloy Yachts and launched in April 1993. Imagine is one of Alloy Yachts’ most extensively cruised yachts, having completed three and a half circumnavigations. The new Imagine II, for the same European owner, is a larger and more modern version. Both were designed by Dubois Naval Architects and share very sleek, low-profile lines.

Imagine II has a beam of 9.38m (30.8ft) and a design displacement of 260 tonnes. Her underwater appendages include a dagger board, with a draft of 4.3m (14.1ft) with the board up and 6.0m (19.6ft) with the board down.

She will be built to Lloyds Classification and will comply with the Large Commercial Yacht Code LY2.

The interior will be undertaken by the Alloy Yachts Interior Design team and features contemporary styling with light-coloured timber joinery. Guest accommodation provides for an owner’s suite and three guest suites, all with ensuite facilities. The crew layout has three cabins all with en-suites for six crew.

Imagine II will be fitted with a carbon fibre mast by Southern Spars with in-boom furling and a complete composite EC6+ rigging package. 3DL sails by North will be handled by captive and vertical winches designed and built by Alloy Yachts. Headsail furlers will be Reckmann hydraulic units.

The main engine is a C18 873hp Caterpillar diesel driving a Hundested variable pitch propeller. 90hp TRAC bow and stern thrusters will assist in close-quarters manoeuvres. She will be fitted with two 67kw Northern Lights generators.

The Alloy Yachts custom SeaTouch system will be installed with touch screen monitors to indicate systems and alarm status throughout the yacht.

Imagine II is scheduled for delivery in February 2010.
