Alpha Z

Alpha Z

Van Dam Custom Boats completed the 32’9” (12m) Alpha Z in the fall of 1998. From her curved mahogany lines to her custom fabricated drivetrain, she is the epitome of craftsmanship and engineering. Designed by Michael Peters Yacht Design, the boat is a stunning example of the level to which wooden boats can ascend.

In typical Van Dam style, Alpha Z is built to the highest standards in modern laminated wood construction. The 3/4" hull bottom is double-planked with two layers of Okoume plywood. The 9/16” hull and deck is triple-planked with the third skin being Honduras mahogany, hand selected for both grain pattern and color. A custom fabricated windshield defines the front of the cockpit. Its compound curves are made from a double layer of 1/4" glass. There is no frame of any sort, and it is held in place by a concealed retaining ring under the dash.

The meticulously hand carved dash is made from a single piece of specially selected Honduras Mahogany. The dash is accented by a custom designed and built steering wheel, and houses state-of-the-art electronics. The driver has fingertip control of all mechanical and electrical functions within easy reach.
