Wally introduced Wallyship, the new line of yachts which will fill the gap in the power boats sector of the market. Wallyship will be available in two models: the 26m and the 36m.
Naval architecture of the Wallyship was developed in collaboration between Wally and Allseas Design. Exterior and interior design were created by in-house Wally designers.
The new power boat is characterized by several distinctive features. The hull of the yacht is 10% wider and more stable compared to the yachts of the same length. The interior spaces are increased.
The tender garage can stow a very large boat (6 meter/20 foot long for the 26m Wallyship and 8 meter - for the 36m Wallyship) and features simplified yet very reliable launching system made of two retractable arms – that when extended, they also serve as tender whisker poles.
The Wallyship has three decks. The upper deck is entirely intended for resting and consists of large sunbathing area and lounge area. The main deck features two social cockpits, a salon and navigation station which is enclosed in the superstructure. Guest and service cabins are located in the lower deck. The owner’s suite is located in the aft part of the main deck and opens onto the Terrace-on-the-sea with direct access to the water.
The 26m vessel will be available in two interior layout options: with 3 or 4 guest cabins. Each cabin can vary in the bed arrangement and in the bed type (twin or double). Both options include two double crew cabins forward the large galley and crew mess area.
The Wallyship exterior lines are innovative and aggressive reflecting the unmistakable Wally style. The interior styling is simple and fresh; the wood options are teak, cherry and oak.
The first 26m Wallyship is now under construction and is scheduled for delivery in spring 2011.
