Monaco-based boatbuilder Wally Yachts has announced that Wally 110 Barong D was successfully launched. The operation was hosted by her owners in a private ceremony gathering privately all the people involved in the design and construction of this 33.5m sailing superyacht.
Barong D is the third Wally delivered to a repeat client. The new build replaces his Wally 94 Barong C, which in turn in 2005 substituted his first Wally, the 80-footer Barong B of 2000.
“Wally employed all its advanced know-how to produce a fully equipped cruising superyacht displacing only 65 tons: two tons lighter than predicted, and approximately 35% less than the other yachts in this size range!” says Luca Bassani, Wally president and CEO.
A full 3D engineering optimised both the design and construction. The shipyard used the latest pre-preg carbon technology throughout the yacht. Wally also claims that advanced technologies and materials have been used for both the electrical system resulting with light weight switchboards and cables and a specific yacht monitor and control system. The hydraulic system that provides the 350 bar max pressure and the electro valves are controlled by a dedicated software to optimise the speed of the manoeuvres. Her wide hull is work of Frers naval architecture.
Wally revealed that the interiors have been built in blocks to achieve maximum quality while reducing weight. The yacht features high modulus carbon mast and furling boom, carbon rigging, titanium deck hardware and fittings, resin and vacuum bonding of the teak wood to the deck and lightened interiors (PVC core joinery, carbon soles and ceiling supports).
Barong D is the 44th sailing yacht launched by the Monegasque brand. Her delivery is scheduled at the end of May, after two weeks of sea trials.
Wally is currently negotiating three new sailing yachts, from 86ft to 141ft and has two boats under construction, wallycento #4 and the upgraded 52 wallypower.
