Wallypower 118 superyacht



Wallypower 118 superyacht

The oddly named 118 WallyPower is a luxury high performance superyacht which brings technology and fashionable design together in perfect harmony. So much so that the 118 WallyPower won the MYDA (Millennium Yacht Design Award). The Wallypower 118 is a unique yacht with marked characteristics like the vertical bow, lateral air inlets, and angular deck superstructure.

The sleek minimalist lines of the 118 WallyPower are the result of an extensive research and development program that included water tank testing at the SSPA facility in Goteborg, Sweden, and wind tunnel testing at the Ferrari facility in Maranello, Italy.

Technical solutions contribute to the yachts appeal, like the superstructure design Wallypower 118 that features flat surfaces in order to be transparent. The yacht features all the spacious comforts normally associated with mega yachts together with the seafaring characteristics of coast-guard boats. While relaxing in complete luxury, guests are capable of cruising at 60 knots not only in flat seas but also in rough waters.

The pure lines of the 118 WallyPower are enhanced by the absence of any visible cleats, mooring winches, radar antenna, TV dome or anchor system, all functional Wallypower 118 items without aesthetic appeal are neatly concealed and hidden without sacrificing functionality.

An innovative interceptor system tailors the boat's trim to further improve performance and comfort in any sea conditions.

The deck of the Wallypower 118 is flush, and features from bow to stern, a tender garage holding a small inflatable tender, the social cockpit, the glass superstructure, and the aft cockpit. The large open areas of the Wallypower 118 are designed to allow comfortable and safe movement around the deck when at stationary. At anchor, the sections of the bulwarks alongside the superstructure drop-down hydraulically to increase the light and the view from the deck and cockpit. When open, they also double as diving platforms.

The propulsion system of the Wallypower 118 consists of three gas turbines generating a colossal 16,800 HP, driving water jets - two steerable outboard and a non-steering on centerline. For maneuvering and long deliveries, the steerable water jets are powered by two diesel engines of 370 HP each. The exhaust system is made of titanium that saves weight while being very resistant to the high temperatures generated by the gas turbines.

The Wallypower 118 super yacht displaces only 95 tons thanks to the sophisticated building technology that uses a hybrid structure to save weight. The bottom of the hull is built in solid fibreglass. Topsides, from the waterline up, are hybrid fibreglass/carbon composite with balsa core. On deck this becomes a Nomex/full carbon composite. The deck superstructure is made of laminated glass with carbon frames. The interior bulkheads and cabin soles carry no structural loads so they are constructed entirely of thin wood and laminate veneer skins with cores. At speed, the 118 WallyPower is comfortable and stable as a result of the deep V (22 degrees) hull shape combined with a straight stem bow designed to pierce waves.

The exterior chameleon-like paint of the Wallypower 118 is dark metallic green, although it changes it hue colour depending on the light, reflections and landscape around it. The superstructure is accessed through a sliding door at the rear and a lifting door at the front. The large, clear aft area can be fitted with dining tables and lounge chairs to become a cockpit-on-the-water. The superstructure is made of a carbon frame to which the glass panels are glued. The advanced glass is composed of Lexan and triple laminate glass.

The Wallypower 118's deck, cockpit, navigation, dining and saloon areas have been conceived as one continuous element. Inside the superstructure, the atmosphere is similar Wallypower 118 interior that of a New York style loft apartment. The open space incorporates three areas, from stern to bow: the saloon, the dining/seating area, and the navigation cockpit. The seating area is designed in the same relaxed style of the cockpit, and the drop-down bulwarks increase the view from inside. The teak wood is covered with cushions to serve as sofas, while the spaces between the teak planes contain various functions such as additional seating, tables, storage and technology. The teak soles are a continuation of the deck teak enhancing the inside-outside living concept of the yacht.

The dining table of the Wallypower 118 is made of two identical halves, and splits longitudinally to be moved over the teak cabinets of both sides, and transform the area into a large clear space. Alternatively, the dining chairs can be locked to the soles creating underway seating. Wallypower 118 seating are Transparency is a main feature of the yachts interior. When dining, guests can enjoy a 360-degree view of their surroundings. Underneath the table, the skylight allows light to filter down to the lower corridor beneath.

The lightweight carbon fiber dining table seats eight people, and the port and starboard teak cabinets alongside serve for storage of china, silverware and glassware.

The dining and lounging cockpit is forward of the superstructure, to provide maximum privacy as well as being in the coolest area at anchor, away from the engines.

Two fore dining tables can be mechanically lowered to provide a large cushioned relaxing area in the bow of the Wallypower.

Inside the yacht the owner's stateroom is forward, and features a king size bed. Plenty of storage is provided by the side cabinets and a 20-inch plasma screen is mounted in the aft bulkhead. The cabin has plenty of natural light coming from the top skylight. Two identical guest cabins feature queen size beds and en-suites. Each cabin has a 15-inch plasma screen in the aft bulkhead. The spacious galley includes the crew mess, again featuring a 15-inch plasma screen. The galley is equipped with a professional oven and stove, as well as plenty of refrigerators.
