First pictures: Wally 93 custom sailing yacht under construction

Wally has revealed the first in-build pictures of its Wally 93 custom sailing yacht after the hull was removed from its mould.

This 28.3 metre sloop was sold to a repeat European client and keen racing yachtsman in an in-house deal earlier this year and delivery is scheduled for 2018, the yard added.

Naval architecture for this composite-hulled racer-cruiser will come from Judel-Vrolijk, while Sans Tabù will collaborate with the yard on the interior design.

Wally founder and president Luca Bassani, who developed the yacht’s exterior profile, described the deck as being ultra-clean with huge living areas.

Accommodation is for six guests in three cabins, while the crew quarters allows for one or two members of staff. Interior styling is being kept under wraps for now, but the yard promises that it will “open up a new route in light displacement yacht decoration”.

Highly performance focussed for light to medium conditions, the Wally 93 will feature an amidships centre of weight to minimise pitching, while the sailplan of 503 metres squared is notably powerful for its lightweight 35.5 tonne hull.

Rolf Vrolijk of Judel-Vrolijk added: “This new design is streamlined for the Wally Class racing circuit. The yacht will have the ability to start surfing with 16 knots of wind, and easily be capable to exceed the true wind speed.”

Auxiliary power will come from a single 255hp Steyr diesel engine, while the mast and boom are both courtesy of Southern Spars and a lifting keel will allow the draught to be reduced from 6.2 metres to 4.5 metres.

Other Wally projects currently under development include the fourth hull in the wallycento series, Tango, which is due to go on display at the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show.
