  1. The 55m WallyPower, developed by the WallyDesign department for a European prospect, is a mega yacht characterized by a displacement hull that is derived from navy hydrodynamic technology.

    The hull shape is the result of an extensive R & D program that included tank testing and CFD computer design, and is characterized by high efficiency and reduced pitching than traditional hulls. The exceptionally high free board enhances safety in rough seas, without contaminating the lines of the yacht.

    The glass superstructure and the very large portholes (each guest cabins features four portholes 2,5 m – 8’2” wide and 0,5 m – 1’ 8” high) flood the interiors with natural light while providing 360 degree views from the upper decks and enhanced visibility from the lower decks.

    The cruising speed of this mega yacht is 17 knots; the construction is high tensile steel for the hull and aluminum light alloy type for the superstructure. The displacement is 780 tons.

    The advanced antirolling system of VT Naiad Marine Stabilization at anchor, combined with a DATUM control system stabilizes the 55m WallyPower both under way and at anchor.
  2. The five decks are cleverly designed to respect the privacy of the owner and guests: a unique feature of the 55m WallyPower is the complete separation of the crew’s flow that follows independent passageways.

    From bottom to top, the five decks are organized as follows: The lower deck is dedicated to crew accommodation (8 doubles + captain cabin) and service. The cabin deck features the guest accommodation (4 double cabins all with en-suites), the main salon, and the hangars. The full beam main salon is 80 m2 (861 ft2) large and is designed following the Wally inside-outside living concept: it gives direct access to the aft deck terrace that is fully equipped with facilities for day use such as sauna, showers, dressing-rooms. The two hangars can store three tenders in different sizes, jet skis, water toys, sailing boat.

    The main deck features the 60 m2 (646 ft2) owner’s suite forward opening onto the private deck area with cockpit and tables, and the lounge and dining area opening onto the deck veranda aft. The bridge deck includes the wheelhouse, the spa with gym, and the aft and forward terraces. The upper sun deck is completely devoted to open air living with a Jacuzzi, a sun bathing area, and a dining table.

    As a result of this layout, the 55m WallyPower introduces new open air living areas on each deck, especially forward of the superstructure that it is much more ventilated and cooler than aft, where other mega yachts of this size usually concentrate the social activity.
