The 111-foot Alloy VvS1 is returning to her old cruising grounds in the South Pacific, offering bookings this summer in Fiji and New Zealand after several years of exploring the Mediterranean.

VvS1 has been a head-turner since she launched in 2007. As a motoryacht built by Alloy (which is better-known for sailing yachts), she earned five awards for design, construction, interior décor and functionality during her debut year on the water.

Her features include a galley aft on the main deck, to take full advantage of any fresh catch; an avant-garde exterior done in gunmetal gray; a top-deck hibachi for alfresco meals; and a fleet of heavy-duty Protector tenders for all the hard-core water sports guests care to enjoy.

Auckland-based 37 South is welcoming VvS1 back to the region with an introductory special for the upcoming charter season. All charters confirmed before the end of February will receive a 10-percent discount on the weekly base rate of $95,000 for eight guests. Cruising dates can be well beyond February as long as the contracts are signed by the deadline.

For planning purposes, VvS1 is expected to be in New Zealand until April, and then in Fiji from May through September.
