Wally 110 sailing yacht Barong D delivered
by Chris Jefferies
The 33.51 metre Wally 110 sailing yacht Barong D has been delivered to her owner, the Italian yard has confirmed.
This all-carbon sloop was developed for an existing client of the Italian builder. The new owner, an experienced yachtsman, previously owned 28.5 metre 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 superyacht 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.”
As well as the use of pre-preg carbon fibre throughout, advanced technologies and materials have also been used on the electrical system and the hydraulic systems, which can provide up to 350 bar of pressure.
The interior was 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 four-person 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.
Auxiliary power comes from a single Cummins QSB6.7 diesel engine, giving Barong D a top speed under power of 13 knots and a cruising speed of 10 knots.
Other projects currently under development at the Italian yard include hull number four in the Wally Cento series and the upgraded WallyPower 52 dayboat.
