The Wallypower Superyacht

In case you've read my profile and you're wondering exactly what a 118ft WallyPower SuperYacht is, allow me to explain,

The 118 WallyPower is a high performance yacht integrating technology with design, resulting with unique and marked characteristics like the vertical bow, the air inlets, and the deck superstructure.

The sleek lines of the 118 WallyPower are the result of an extensive R&D programme that included the tank testing at the SSPA facility in Goteborg, Sweden, and the wind tunnel testing in the Ferrari facility in Maranello, Italy

Wind Tunnel Testing

The pure lines of the 118 WallyPower are enhanced by the absence of visible cleats, mooring winches, radar antenna, TV dome, anchor system: everything is perfectly and neatly concealed and hidden without sacrificing functionality.

For instance a panel in the forward deck opens hydraulically and vertically to reveal the spacious lazzarette housing the tender (small boat used to go to shore without docking the ship) and water toys like JetSkis, which are launched with a crane.

Some other technical solutions contribute to the yachts appeal, like the shape of the bow which allows for a 50 per cent reduction of the vertical acceleration i.e. the "jumping" motion caused by sudden acceleration, and the superstructure design that features flat surfaces in order to appear transparent.

The bottom of the hull is built in solid fibreglass. Topsides from the waterline 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: they are constructed entirely of thin wood and laminate veneer skins with cores.

Chameleon Effect

The chameleon-like paint finish is metallic dark green and changes reflections and colour depending on the light and landscape.

The deck is flush and features from bow to stern: the tender garage, the social cockpit, the glass superstructure, and the aft cockpit. Large open areas are designed to comfortably and safely move around the deck when at anchor.


The deck, cockpit, navigation, dining and saloon areas have been conceived as one continuous element. Inside the superstructure, the atmosphere if that of a New York style loft. The open space incorporates three areas, from stern to bow: the saloon, the dining/seating area, and the navigation cockpit.

The saloon is designed with the same relaxed life of the cockpit; the drop-down bulwarks increase the view from inside. The teak planes are 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.

Dining Table

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

Dining table spilt and moved to the side

The dining table 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.

Owners Master Bed

The owner’s stateroom is forward, featuring a king size bed. Plenty of storage is provided by the side cabinets. A 20” plasma screen is mounted in the aft bulkhead. The cabin has plenty of natural light coming for the top skylight.

The spacious galley encloses the crew mess with 15” plasma screen. The galley is equipped with professional oven and stove, as well as plenty of fridges.

The two identical guest cabins feature queen size beds and en-suites with separate head and shower. The 15” plasma screen is in the aft bulkhead.

The propulsion system consists of three gas turbines generating 16,800 HP, driving water jets - two steerable outboard and a non-steering on centreline. For manoeuvring 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 resistent to the high temperatures generated by the gas turbines.

The yacht displaces only 95 tons thanks to the sophisticated building technology that used a hybrid structure to save weight while reacting in a very sound manner, without transmitting shockwaves therefore making comfortable the rigidity of the composite hull.

At speed, the 118 WallyPower is comfortable and stable as a result of the V hull shape combined with the construction technology and the perfect isolation of the machinery noise and vibration.
It is capable of reaching speeds as fast as 60 knots (70 mph, 110 km/h)

Oh and by the way,The cost of the 118 Wallypower is US$24.83 million for the triple gas turbines or $16.55 million for the twin diesels only.

Please forgive the tacky music in the video :-)
