Wally introduces Wallyship, the new line of yachts reflecting the current trend of the market towards displacement power boats.
Wallyship includes two models: the 26m wallyship (84-foot) and the 36m wallyship (118-footer), that is currently being developed.
The styling comes from in-house, while the naval architecture results from collaboration between Wally and Allseas Design, the company behind the Wally Tender, Fjord Motorboats, and a number of custom megayacht tenders.
Wally hasn’t revealed specifications for the 36-meter, but the 26-meter will be equipped with twin 350-hp Caterpillar C12s.
Because she’s intended to emphasize distance versus speed, too, the expected range is 2,000 nautical miles at a 12-knot cruise.
Wally says the 26-meter Wallyship’s beam is about 10 percent wider than that of comparable megayachts, coming in at 7.5 meters, or just shy of 25 feet.
The 26m wallyship comes with two interior layout options depending on the number of the guest cabins: 3-cabin and 4-cabin.
Each cabin can vary in the bed arrangement and in the bed type (twin or double) . The 3-cabin option features a 36 sqm owner’s suite.
Both options include two double crew cabins forward the large galley and crew mess area. The interior styling is simple and fresh; the wood options are teak, cherry and oak.
The owner and guests will appreciate the extra elbowroom on deck, where there’s not just the customary aft-deck dining and relaxing area, but also what Wally calls a forward cockpit.
It features a full-size dining table surrounded by sunning space. Inside, the additional beam benefits the choice of three or four staterooms.
With either layout, the owner is treated to an aft suite featuring a wall of glass doors/windows that yield access to the enlarged swim platform.
Priced at â‚¬ 4.5milion plus options, the first unit of the 26 m Wallyships is scheduled for spring 2011.
