Wally 118 Wallypower

Wally 118 Wallypower #1

The 118 WallyPower is a high performance superyacht integrating technology with design, resulting with unique and marked characteristics like the vertical bow, the air inlets, and the deck superstructure.
The technical solutions contribute to the yacht appeal, like the shape of the bow that allows for a 50 per cent reduction of the vertical acceleration, and the superstructure design that features flat surfaces in order to be transparent.
The yacht features all the spacious comforts of a mega yacht together with the nautical characteristics of coast-guard boat: while remaining comfortable on board, guests are capable of cruising at 60 knots not only in flat seas but also in rough waters.
The pure lines of the 118 WallyPower are enhanced by the absence of visible cleats, mooring winches, radar antenna, TV dome, anchor system: everything is perfectly and neatly concealed and hidden without sacrificing functionality.
An innovative interceptor system controls the boat’s trim to improve even further performance and comfort in any sea conditions.
The deck is flush and features from bow to stern: the tender garage, the social cockpit, the glass superstructure, and the aft cockpit. Large open areas are designed to comfortably and safely move around the deck when at anchor
The propulsion system consists of three gas turbines generating 16,800 HP, driving water jets - two steerable outboard and a non-steering on centreline. For manoeuvring and long deliveries, the steerable water jets are powered by two diesel engines of 370 HP each. The exhaust system is made of titanium that saves weight while being very resistent to the high temperatures generated by the gas turbines.
The yacht displaces only 95 tons thanks to the sophisticated building technology that used a hybrid structure to save weight while reacting in a very sound manner, without transmitting shockwaves therefore making comfortable the rigidity of the composite hull.
The bottom of the hull is built in solid fibreglass. Topsides from the waterline are hybrid fibreglass/carbon composite with balsa core. On deck this becomes a Nomex/full carbon composite. The deck superstructure is made of laminated glass with carbon frames. The interior bulkheads and cabin soles carry no structural loads: they are constructed entirely of thin wood and laminate veneer skins with cores.
At speed, the 118 WallyPower is comfortable and stable as a result of the V hull shape combined with the construction technology and the perfect isolation of the machinery noise and vibration.
The hull form is a deep V of 22 degrees at the stern, with a straight stem bow designed to perform as a wave piercing.
The chameleon-like paint finish is metallic dark green and changes reflections and colour depending on the light and landscape.
At anchor, the sections of the bulwarks alongside the superstructure drop-down hydraulically to increase the light and the view from the salon. When open, they serve as diving platforms as well.
The superstructure is accessed through a sliding door aft and through a lifting door forward. The large and clear aft area can be fitted with dining table and lounge chairs to become a cockpit on-the-water.
The superstructure is made of a carbon frame to which the glass panels are glued. The glass is composed of Lexan and a triple laminate of glass.
The deck, cockpit, navigation, dining and saloon areas have been conceived as one continuous element. Inside the superstructure, the atmosphere if that of a New York style loft. The open space incorporates three areas, from stern to bow: the saloon, the dining/seating area, and the navigation cockpit.
The saloon is designed with the same relaxed life of the cockpit; the drop-down bulwarks increase the view from inside. The teak planes are covered with cushions to serve as sofas, while the spaces between the teak planes contain various functions such as additional seating, tables, storage and technology. The teak soles are a continuation of the deck teak enhancing the inside-outside living concept of the yacht.
The dining table is made of two identical halves, and splits longitudinally to be moved over the teak cabinets of both sides, and transform the area into a large clear space. Alternatively, the dining chairs can be locked to the soles creating underway seating.
Transparency is a main feature of the yacht interiors. When dining, guests can enjoy the 360-degree view. Underneath the table, the skylight gives light to the lower corridor.
The carbon fiber dining table seats eight people. The port and starboard teak cabinets serve for storage of china, silverware and glassware.
The port console is dedicated to the engineering, start-up, and monitoring systems underway. The starboard one serves for the steering, control, communication, navigation and interceptor systems.
The dining and lounging cockpit is forward of the superstructure, to provide maximum privacy as well as being in the coolest area at anchor.
The two dining tables can be mechanically lowered to provide a large cushioned relaxing area.
A panel in the forward deck opens hydraulically and vertically to reveal the spacious lazzarette housing the tender and water toys, that are launched with a crane.
The owner’s stateroom is forward, featuring a king size bed. Plenty of storage is provided by the side cabinets. A 20” plasma screen is mounted in the aft bulkhead. The cabin has plenty of natural light coming for the top skylight.
The owner’s double en-suites share the bathtub and shower.
The two identical guest cabins feature queen size beds and en-suites with separate head and shower. The 15” plasma screen is in the aft bulkhead.
The guest cabin viewed from the en-suite. The colour scheme throughout the night area combines natural teak with ecru linen, white lacquered veneers, and silvery fibreglass.
The spacious galley encloses the crew mess with 15” plasma screen. The galley is equipped with professional oven and stove, as well as plenty of fridges.
The sleek lines of the 118 WallyPower are the result of an extensive R&D programme that included the tank testing at the SSPA facility in Goteborg, Sweden, and the wind tunnel testing in the Ferrari facility in Maranello, Italy
Smoke test in the Ferrari Wind Tunnel Facility, conducted to optimise the air inlets of the gas turbines, to verify any turbulence and back flow of the exhaust gas on deck and living areas, and to have a further confirmation of the geometry of the hull and superstructure.
The test conducted at SSPA in Sweden, the Tank Testing Facility specialised in high-speed vessels, in order to verify such an innovative hull design while sailing at 70 knots.

Shame no one wants to buy one.

I think they've made a massive total of 2 hulls, one of which (this boat) is owned by the bloke who runs Wally.

Whilst on the topic of boats, there are some nice renderings of a 102m M/Y called "marco polo" by Fincantieri/ Benetti.

Any chance of some high-res versions per chance?

I've been through over 30 mega-yacht manufacturer websites, the one and only website with a media area with high-res pictures is Wally, and you need to be an accredited media member in order to access them, none of the other websites had anything unfortunately.

Punctuation makes me happy. Lack thereof makes me a sad panda.
