ZALMON (ex- Kokomo of London, ex Nuberu Blau) has undergone a substantial refit and maintenance program since August 2016. These include the overhaul of the main engine and generators, new communication and navigation equipment, new rig from Carbolink (state of the art carbon rig manufacturer in the world and supplier for the Americas Cup), new sails, a complete Hull and Superstructure paintjob, overhaul of the Castoldi tender and on top a brand new fixed rig that is now often seen in the top modern bigger Sailing Yachts.
The SY Kokomo of London has always been a fantastic fast sailing yacht and has been built to the highest standards in yacht building. However the last 2-3 years she was owned by a bank and therefore did not leave the harbour. The present owner has recognized the big chance to purchase such a high quality sailing yacht and brought her back to beauty.
The aim was not only to make her fit for a circumnavigation, but also to improve the original style to a state-of-the-art sailing yacht. The new paint job and the brand new fixed sunroof shows what could be done.
