Luxury yacht GALATEIA boasts all the innovative concepts of the box-ruled superyacht: a fully equipped family cruiser matching the speed of the latest maxi racers, and providing a close racing within a narrow rating range of the wallycento fleet in the Wally Class competitive programme.

“The wallycento formula is indisputably successful because these super yachts proved to be highly competitive, very technical, extremely fast in all conditions, and exceptionally cruiser friendly,” says Luca Bassani, Wally founder and president. “With all these characteristics, the wallycento super yachts currently reflect the highest technological expression of the world of large sailing yachts continuing the tradition of the true Maxis, which is racing in an homogeneous and competitive fleet.”

The world-renowned naval architect studio, Reichel Pugh Yacht Design, has developed the new Wallycento yacht GALATEIA, with Wally responsible for the styling and interiors. “We developed the next generation wallycento hull shape incorporating into the design the on-the-water experience of Magic Carpet3 and the results of our latest hull study in computational fluid dynamics - explains Jim Pugh of Reichel Pugh Yacht Design –  All areas of the design were open for development with focus on improving the underwater foil package, reducing windage and improving the yacht’s systems, weight, and function. A critical emphasis was on providing a responsive and rewarding experience for the helmsperson with a reassuring feeling of stability and control especially in more arduous wind and sea conditions.”

The new white hulled wallycento super yacht GALATEIA boasts a super flush deck with a huge social cockpit amidships seating up to 10 people, as well as a wide aft sun lounge, with the twin helm and navigation stations in between. Down below, the luxurious and comfortable interiors of the vessel host, from bow to stern, the Owners’ suite forward, two guest double cabins, the main salon and lounge area with the nav station, the galley, the engine room and the crew double cabin. All cabins have en-suites. The forward end is dedicated to the Wally submarine anchor locker and the large sail locker with accommodation for two crew, while the aft area features a large tender garage and incorporates part of the systems.

In spring 2016, she will head back to the Mediterranean to join the Wally Class that is expected to host another record number of participants. “Since we founded the Wally Class back in 1999explains Luca Bassaniwe established the Owner driving rule, that is the main driving force behind the unmatchable success of our racing division.”

At the moment, Wally has under construction the sailing yacht Wally 110, as well as the fourth unit of the 26m wallyace, and is finalizing the sales of the fourth wallycento, the fifth 26m wallyace, the first 30m wallyace, the first custom 80 wallypower, and several units of the wallypower range, including the 52 and the 58 models.

“The extra time in the main shed allowed us to push ahead with the interior… it is now 90% complete. I have launched dozens of yachts in my career but have never done so with this level of completion to the interior outfitting… this will save us time in the final commissioning,” commented Juan Balaguer, Wider COO.

“It is enormously satisfying to see “Genesi” in the water for the first time,” said Tilli Antonelli, Wider Founder and CEO. “But now we have the important task of checking that everything is working to the same high standards that we have set ourselves in every other aspect of the construction process. We believe that this can be done in 8-10 weeks but will not rush anything if it means compromising on the quality of the finished yacht…We will make sure that she is 110% finished before unveiling her in full to the market.”

The WIDER 150 yacht GENESI boasts more than 350m2 of external areas, providing numerous relaxation spaces in direct connection to the sea for the owner and guests to enjoy.  These include an amazing beach club with plenty of room for sunbathing and a covered 7m seawater swimming pool. Thanks to its floating system, the stern of the vessel can be converted into a large garage ideal for storing the WIDER 32 yacht tender. The beach club’s seawater pool opens up at the transom to allow the tender to be driven in.

The WIDER 150 yacht GENESI is run by a diesel-electric propulsion system mixed up with Azimuthal pods, resulting in reduced consumption, while at the same time facilitating unprecedented range.  The vessel can cruise using only the battery packs, in ZEM (Zero Emission Mode), or with up to four inline diesel generators. This means it can cruise at a higher range of speeds, while continuing to enjoy limited specific fuel consumption.
