#1329 ... Janice of Wyoming

Superb nautical design visits Wellington. "Janice of Wyoming" an awesome example of liquid assets gives some class to the rather tatty wharf.

SY Janice of Wyoming

130 ft (40m) sloop designed by Ed Dubois' team in Hampshire, UK and built by Alloy Yachts International in Auckland , New Zealand .She has a beam of 28.54 ft (8.7m) and draws 13.12 ft (4.00m). The yacht is Alloy Yachts' 31st project and the 12th Dubois design. "Janice" began construction in June '03 and will be launched in March '05. She has a very low profile superstructure and a high performance hull in the classic maritime colors of flag blue and white. Alloy Yachts' own captive winches, a carbon fiber rig from Southern Spars plus a wardrobe of 3DL Aramid/carbon sails from North Sails' Auckland loft ensure that she will be fast and easily handled in a wide variety of wind conditions.

The design has been a collaborative effort between the Alloy Yachts team, the Owners and the Dubois office. Personal design touches are everywhere, from direct galley / dining salon access and a guest servery on the lower deck.
