118 WALLY POWER

We are used to original projects from the Wally shipyard but the new 118 Wally Power is truly amazing. This is a fast 36m motoryacht, created using the most modern technology in design and construction. It looks like an ultra-modern FPB, i.e. a military Fast Patrol Boat, an impression created by its shape, which is very like that of the Stealths, often said to be "invisible". But the technical specifications of this yacht confirm the impression of power and exclusiveness created by its appearance. The total power installed is no less than 16,800 HP, generated by three gas turbines thanks to which the maximum speed reaches about 70 knots. But that's not all: to facilitate manoeuvring in narrow waters, the 1818 Wally power is equipped with two diesel engines which guarantee easy handling at low speed. There is nothing ordinary about this yacht: from its design to the building materials and its minimalist furnishings it seems to have been inspired by the modern battle aircrafts; ample proof lies in the bridge which looks like the cockpit of a fighter. There are numerous innovations also regarding deck equipment, from the gangplank that becomes a ladder when the need arises, or the garage for the tender which transforms into a gym. The interior, designed by the shipyard in conjunction with Lazzarini Pickering Arhictects is unique too and is characterised by a minimalist style which enhances ergonomics. The sleeping area can house six, including owner and guests, as well as six crew members.
