The Wally 100 has been launched at a private ceremony hosted by her owner, and is now named Barong D. She is expected to be delivered at the end of May following two weeks of sea trials.
The 33.5-metre Wally 110 was developed for an existing client of the Italian builder. The new owner, an experienced yachtsman, previously owned 28.5m Wally Barong C and before that 24-metre Barong B.
Barong D was designed by Frers Naval Architecture and has been created with performance in mind.
“Wally employed all its advanced know-how to produce a fully equipped cruising super yacht displacing only 65 tons: two tons lighter than predicted,” explained Wally's president and CEO Luca Bassani. “We succeeded in delivering a truly exceptional performance cruiser that accommodates in full comfort the owners who spend several months of the year on-board.”
The yacht is built using pre-preg carbon throughout. Advanced technologies and materials have also been used on the electrical system and the hydraulic systems, which provides 350 bar max pressure.
The interior is built in blocks to achieve the maximum quality while reducing the weight. Designed by Wally and Luca Bassani it includes a forward owner’s suite with two large separate beds for comfort under sail. On top of the two en suite double guest cabins there is a main saloon, while the crew and service area features a galley, crew mess, two double cabins and engine room.
“As often happens with happy owners Barong D is the larger evolution of their previous yachts, featuring similar style and deck and interior layouts,” Bassani added.
Wally is currently negotiating three new sailing yachts, from 86 to 141 feet, and has two boats under construction, wallycento#4 and the upgraded 52wallypower.
