Green Marine launches the first WallyCento...

Recent Launches

She’s Charles Dunstone’s new ‘Hamilton’.

JUNE 2012

The first WallyCento has launched in the UK. She’s Hamilton and her owner is Sir Charles Dunstone of Carphone Warehouse fame and fortune.
Designed to Wally’s ‘box rule’ by Judel/Vrolijk, she was craned into the water at Vitters-subsidiary Green Marine’s Hythe, Hampshire, facility on Southampton Water. Her interior design was the responsibility of Design Unlimited.
SY Hamilton will join the Wally Class racing circuit at the end of the Med summer, participating in first the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup (Porto Cervo, Sept 2-8) and in the Voiles de Saint Tropez (Sept 30-Oct 7). And at the end of ’12 Hamilton will be joined on the Wally circuit by ex-L’Oreal chairman Sir Lindsay Owen-Jones’ WallyCento No2, Magic Carpet³, which is under construction at Wally’s own facility, Wally Europe, in Fano. She was de-moulded in June ’12 and fit-out has already begun.
