WallyCento Sailing Yacht Tango for Sale
by Malcolm Maclean
The 30.48 metre sailing yacht Tango has been listed for sale by Wally.
Built in carbon fibre by Italian yard Persico Marine to design by Mills Design, she was delivered in 2017 as a Wallycento model designed for speed. The minimalist interior, by Pininfarina, needed to be super-light and still offer comfortable accommodation for six guests in three cabins. All of the accommodation is situated forward, including the master suite with double beds on either side. This area can be neatly converted into a sail storage room when the yacht is set up for regatta racing, since a giant skylight hatch gives direct access from the foredeck.
“Thanks to the selection of materials and the innovative solutions of the interior decoration, delivering both function and aesthetics, we generated an ultra-light and super-performing yacht, perfectly suitable for cruising as well as for racing,” says Pininfarina. Key materials used include carbon fibre, wood and leather, creating a sporty atmosphere, reinforced by red accents in the furniture and red automotive-style seams on the upholstery.
The design approach follows the theme of the cockpit-less deck, with staircase-less steps down to the saloon. Floating treads, their ends angled not unlike spoilers on a Formula One car or wavelets on an otherwise smooth sea, are suspended from the saloon’s aft bulkhead. The ends of two of the steps stretch out along the saloon walls forming shelves.
A standout feature is the cutting-edge deck layout that combines the flush deck and bulwarks of Esense with the ramp deck of Alegre. This gives the owner a functional race-ready layout that fits over the interior accommodation, as mandated by the class rules.
Tango is asking €12,000,000.
