Title: Ultra Modern Boat Wally 118

Ultra Modern Boat Wally 118
The Italian group, Wally Yachts, is about to do
to motor yachts what it did to the sailing world
several years ago. Following the incredible
success of its radical sailing yachts, they plan
to assault the motor market with this design that
looks radical even for the most futuristic movie!
Intermarine, the renowned warship builder put the
Wally together. The team work allowed for the
technical solutions to blend with the styling
solutions. The result is a unique yacht with very
distinctive characteristics the vertical bow,
the large side air intakes supplying air to the
turbo jet engines and the wide open deck
The grayish green metallic color of the hull
contributes to the appeal of the 118 WallyPower
which features unique lines enhancing her
nautical characteristics, and a glass
superstructure exploiting the Wally concept of
inside-outside living spaces.
The 118 made her debut late last summer. Even
with some of the most beautiful sailboats in the
world to admire, competitors at the St. Tropez
classic yacht rally couldnt take their eyes off
the Wallypower. At the maxi-racers Rolex Cup
in Porto Cervo, the 118 drew spectator boats like
a carbon-fiber pied piper. And at the Monaco
Yacht Show in September, where she officially
debuted, visitors couldnt get enough of her
stealth-bomber chic.
The project has followed an intensive and
exceptional RD program which has involved
specialized facilities like SSPA in Sweden and
the Ferrari Wind Tunnel Facility in Italy to test
the eloquent features of this stunning yacht.
As a result, the 118-foot yacht WallyPower stands
out for her technology as well as for her
contemporary design and unreal high speed
The main design and technical features are
protected by an international patent based on
the futuristic design leap in luxury motor yachts.
The motorized aft sliding gangway just off the
poop deck serves as a very large passerelle (dock
or diving platform at water level) when
completely extended, and as swimming ladder when
folded.Watching it extend or retract is
mesmerizing. The superstructure is elegantly
built in strong and light weight carbon fiber and
PVC foam covered with laminated glass. The hull
is carbon the passarelle is carbon. Even the
bath fixtures are carbon composites. Just about
the only major surface that is not carbon fiber
is the decking.Both for its unmatched beauty and
longevity in the marine world traditional
teakwood was the choice.
Just forward of the superstructure is an inset
seating area, which can be shaded by a bimini
top. That mysterious tinted glass-sided deckhouse
shelters a spacious saloon aft, with white
upholstery, plain cherrywood surfaces, and a
seductive beach-house ambience.Traditional
teakwood is underfoot.
There are very few cabin doors, no switches, no
handles. Lighting is operated by discreet
touch-screen computer control panels in every
area or cabin. These commands just to name a few
activates flat Plasma screen TVs which fold down
into the deck head, selects music from a 200CD
library, operates four separate video units and
sets air conditioning levels.
The main deck of the Wallypower is a wonderful
living space, protected from sun,wind and rain
yet affording spectacular views of the sea and
sky for guests, owners, and helmsmen alike. This
style of enclosed, open-air living is a major
change in the quite select and secretive yachting
The dining table , made of carbon fiber sits
amidships, just aft of the helm.The whole design
allows passage from the sunken alfresco area
forward literally aft through the yacht. Note the
upskirt skylight under the table for companionway
lighting below.
A sliding carbon composite dining table and
molded web chairs allow up to 14 people to eat
in either a formal or a relaxed atmosphere.
Speed issues made lightness of utmost importance
throughout therefore all possible construction is
PVC foam covered with carbon-fiber layers
overlaid with laminated glass. To decrease
weight further, all built-in furniture and
cabinetry above and below deck is a honeycomb
composite, either lacquered or veneered in
American cherry. Even the marine toilets are
carbon-composite and weigh a mere 16 pounds.
The idea behind this project is to have a boat
featuring all the spacious comforts of a mega
yacht together with all the nautical
characteristics of a super fast coast-guard
cutter capable of an incredible 60 knots.
All passengers can enjoy dining , conversation or
cocktails here while lounging on custom cushions
of closed-cell polyurethane foam molded precisely
to the boat's dimensions and covered in simple
yet practical terrycloth.
And what about the ridiculously expensive
titanium, liberally employed for handrails,
blocks, stanchions and trim? It's stylish and
'maintenance free', says Simon Fry. Lower
maintenance means fewer crew and less cost within
a given length. So the pricey titanium is
actually seen as a cost-saving material in the
salty marine environment.
In the bow the master cabin enjoys ample sunshine
via a skylight extending below-deck for the
entire length the of the yacht. The double bed's
platform is lacquered carbon fiber and is
integral to the hull. The cabin walls are paneled
in ecru linen.
The 118 is an express motoryacht with berths for
six guests in three en suite staterooms and six
crew, and her accommodations are arranged
symmetrically on each side of a straight, central
corridor in that unique angular hull. The
designers employed pearly white acrylic paint,
the same used on Formula 1 cars on some surfaces
and the companionway is made from translucent
varnished carbon fiber. Polyurethane foam
cushions are used for the banquettes and
humidity-resistant Novolatex for the cabins'
mattresses. The pair of identical guest cabins
each have two single beds, plus en suite heads
and washrooms.
The forward deck of the yacht features the
cockpit with a large pop-up bimini roof and
tables accompanied by sliding seats. This system
provides the opportunity to modify the layout
according to various situations and requirements,
from dining to sun-bathing or a casual living
The tender garage in the bow is exposed when a
triangular section of the foredeck lifts on three
hydraulic rams revealing a storage compartment
for a Zodiac, scuba gear ,fishing supplies and
all the other water toys you can imagine.
The Galley is gourmets dream and every surface
is stainless steel including the ceiling.Titanium
fixtures are also in abundance. It takes a lot
these days to turn heads in super-chic St Tropez.
And yet this year no fewer than seven yachts
managed to wow the crowds. The link between these
all-carbon, minimalist machines was one name.
Wally. Wally yachts have become the object of
desire in the carbo-riche fashion elite. And yet
it has taken only seven years for Wally Yachts
president and owner Luca Bassani to build this
reputation, with nine multi-million dollar yachts
ranging from 67ft to 107ft afloat and talk of a
125-footer on the drawing board.
Beam 7.45 m (24.4 ft) Draught 1.25 m (4.8 ft)
Max speed 40 to 70 knots Cruising speed 45 to
60 knots Range 700 miles Fuel capacity22,000 L
(4,850 Gal) Water capacity2,000 L (44o
Gal) Accommodation6-8 guests 4 crew Cost 16-24
million depending on the power plant.
The propulsion system includes three Detroit or
RollsRoyce Diesel gas turbines driving three
KaMeWa waterjets generating 16,800 HP and 60
knots of speed with two auxiliary Cummins diesel
engines _at_370hp each for the maneuvering, and
driving two waterjets for long range delivery at
the relatively slow speed of nine knots.
TF50 Detroit Diesel/Gas Turbine _at_5600hp
There is a more conventional engine option when
the yacht is equipped with twin diesels
only.Youll save about 8 million on the price if
you opt for the twin 3,650-hp MTU 4000 V16 diesel
engines only.
In the helm both turbines and diesels are
electronically controlled, and simple clutch in
and clutch out buttons take care of gearbox
transfer from one to the other. The same control
units also operate the waterjets. In fact the
helm station looks almost conventionaluntil you
notice the separate engineers console on the
port side dedicated to the jet turbines.
Another notable feature is found in the top
section, where navigation radars and antennas are
concealed in genuine stealth navy style.
Genuinely new and high-tech, from her engine room
to her folding radar mast, the Wallypower 118 has
carbon, glass and honeycomb construction, a
superbly minimalist Euro interior and a nearly
60-knot top speed. What a combination !
Takes My Breath Away !
