The 26m Wallyship...


Wally signed its first contract for one of these displacement motoryachts in January ’10; delivery is scheduled for spring 2011.


There are several characteristics of this new design. For instance, its particularly stable hull is around 10 per cent beamier than most other motoryachts of the same length and displacement. Its freeboard is higher too, which not only makes for more interior volume, but also should improve rough-weather comfort. The centre of gravity is lower owing to the sleek lines, which also contributes to better stability.
As to how the interior and exterior spaces work, they are essential pure Wally − big open spaces and minimalist in terms of style and furniture. It features an aft owners’ suite that opens on to a ‘terrace on the sea’, a concept pioneered by that famous Wally sailing yacht Tiketitan.
There is a big garage with room for a 6m (20ft) tender.
Their engines will be low-revving and continuously rated.
Available in three or four guest-cabin versions, the 26m Wallyship features three decks: the top one over the superstructure delivers a large sunbathing and open lounge area; the main deck has two social cockpits, one forward and one aft, and the main saloon between that includes the bridge area; and the guest and service deck on the lower deck.
The crew provision is four.
The Wallyships will be built at WallyEurope in Ancona, Italy.
The construction time of the first one will be 16 months. Prices for the model start at €4.5milion.
A 36m (118ft) Wallyship is also under development.
