Project K, a Foundation for Youth Development programme designed to inspire 14 – 15-year olds to maximise their full potential, is pleased to announce Alloy Yachts as a new regional sponsor of the programme in Waitakere.
The three year agreement will support the delivery of the programme in the four Project K Waitakere schools: Kelston Boys High, Massey High School, Rutherford College and Waitakere College.
Based in Henderson, Alloy Yachts is recognised as one of the leading super yacht builders in the world, winning 19 international awards over the last 22 years. Their objective is to strive for continual improvement in both excellence and innovation with all projects.
Alloy Yachts Managing Director Tony Hambrook says of the partnership: “We saw a good fit between Project K and Alloy Yachts’ objectives and are proud to support a positive initiative in the local community that encourages young adults to aim high and reach for the top.”
Project K Waitakere Progamme Director, Amanda Wheeler welcomes the relationship: "Alloy Yachts truly signifies a New Zealand company who has reached its potential.

Through the 14 month programme which consists of three core components; a Wilderness Adventure, Community Challenge and 12 months of Mentoring, students learn self reliance, teamwork, self confidence, perseverance and how to set and achieve goals.
