Further information on Cary Ali:
Built by Alloy Yachts, and designed by René van der Velden, CaryAli is a modern and stylish explorer yacht, equipped for long-range travel. Her experienced owners were hands on throughout the design and build process and winning this award is a real testament to their vision for the project.
"We are both happy and proud to be a part of the Alloy family," said the owners of CaryAli. "If the time comes to construct another yacht we certainly would return to Alloy."
Tony Hambrook, Managing Director, and all of the Alloy Yachts team are delighted to see CaryAli join Alloy’s long list of award winning motor and sail yachts. With the ISS awards being judged by Alloy's industry peers, this is a particularly gratifying award for CaryAli to receive. Alloy Yachts is currently exhibiting on the SYBAss Dock at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 31 Oct – 4 Nov 2013.
