Building the market
By increasing laminate thickness and hoop strength America’s Cup battens became a viable, light-weight alternative for use on Superyachts. C-Tech was able to supply sail battens to at least 8 of the superyachts visiting for the 2003 Millenium Cup and the export market was born. Yachts over 30m (98ft) now make up over 50% of CT Sailbatten orders (excluding America’s Cup).
Fraser Brown, acting as European agent for CT Sailbattens, introduced the product to the ORMA 60 and Open 60 market. Light-weight and durable, CT Sailbattens quickly became the product of choice for offshore racers.
The yard is recognized as one of the leading superyacht builders in the world. Over the last 22 years Alloy Yachts has won 19 International Awards and has placed as a finalist on 21 occasions.
The Company objective is to strive for continual improvement in both excellence and innovation with all projects. This approach is reflected in the yachts produced with exceptional quality of workmanship and serious attention to detail.
