    The largest motoryacht built at Alloy Yachts went into production in January 2004.

    The 40m "Ad Lib" (at one's pleasure) is similar in design to the 39m (128ft) motoryacht S.Q.N. launched by Alloy Yachts in February 2003, but is one metre longer and has some changes in equipment, interior layout and finish.

    As with S.Q.N., the yacht is designed by Dubois Naval Architects with a Don Starkey Design interior and is being built for Gary Lane, the Chairman of Alloy Yachts.

    Ad Lib has an aluminium hull and superstructure and is 40.0m (131ft) overall with an 8.5m (27.8ft) beam. Waterline length is 34m (113ft) and draft 1.9m (6.2ft). She will displace 224 tonnes.

    Her main accommodation on the lower deck has two double guest cabins and one twin cabin, all with ensuites. There is also a gymnasium with pulman berths for conversion to an additional guest cabin when required. The ensuite area is fitted with a wine cellar and extra storage.

    Forward are a double Captains cabin, one twin crew cabin and one three berth crew cabin all with ensuites. In this area is the galley, crew mess and separate laundry.

    The engine room aft, houses two Caterpillar 3412 engines, each 1400hp at 2300 rpm. Two Northern Lights 66 kw generators are fitted together with two 35 kw Mastervolt shore power converters. The 5.3m tender is stored in the lazarette with side door access to the water on the port side.

    The main deck has an aft cockpit with bar and a sliding sunscreen over the aft alfresco dining area.

    Forward is the main saloon and dining area with seating for up to 10 guests. Ahead of the dining area and on a half level above the main deck is the bridge. A stairway leads from here up to the flybridge which can also be accessed from the aft cockpit. Ahead of the guest lobby on the main deck is a study leading to the master cabin with his and her ensuites.

    The expansive flybridge has a bar, jacuzzi, barbecue and dining for eight under a fixed sun awning. An outside steering station is also located on the centre line of the flybridge with a sunpad forward of the windscreen. A docking station is fitted on the starboard side of the aft cockpit. A three man Seadoo water craft and crew tender are stored on the foredeck. A davit on the foredeck will launch this equipment.

    The yacht is fitted with a Naiad stabiliser system. She carries 36,000 litres of fuel and will have a maximum speed of 16.5 knots and a cruising speed of 14.5 knots. She will have a range of 4000 n.m. at 10 knots. There are two watermakers producing 4500 litres each per day. Storage capacity is 10,000 litres.

    Built to Lloyds classification, Ad Lib will comply with The Large Yacht Code. She will be flagged in the Cayman Islands and launched in August 2005.
