Renowned for its innovative vessels, the Italian Wally shipyard has announced the launch of the fourth unit of the 26m wallyace displacement line – the motor yacht Wally Casa. The yacht has splashed onto the water with success and is now prepared to take on sea trials before the delivery to her American owners, which is to take place end of this month.
The 26-metre vessel is yet another example of the Wally approach to yachting innovation, which is renowned for their approach to improving the quality of the life on the water.
Wallyace is presented with an innovative layout boasting the owner’s/VIP quarters aft with sliding doors, providing access to the aft platform – known as the Wally Terrace-on-the-sea. The interiors are therefore flooded with natural light while reflecting the Wally inside-outside concept, with perfect flow between the into or and outdoor areas. This concept was first introduced aboard the 1998 sailing yacht TIKETITAN.
Wally Casa takes this concept even further while boasts a one-of-a-kind layout with three cabins with the massive aft owner’s suite, which is represented by a 33 square metre area that opens up onto to Terrace-on-the-sea, offering an awe-inspiring feeling when entering the suite.
The aft platform has been enlarged by more than one metre in respect to the previous units, enhancing the feel of a beach resort on the sea. The entire outdoor/indoor flow is represented throughout the entire vessel. For example, the living area under the superstructure is entirely surrounded by glass, providing a 360° view.
Wally’s main aim is to completely enjoy the open-air living and the sea, and this is reflected in the open-air social areas: 130 square metres of outdoor areas spreading over two decks, larger than any other yacht in this size range.
For the first time, Wally Casa boasts an outdoor custom hot tub, which is situated in the forward social cockpit of the main deck, surrounded by comfortable sun pads on both sides.
The garage hosts a 5m tender and is situated amidships above the engine room with direct access to the crew and service quarters, which also separates the guests and crew areas for utmost privacy on board.
WALLY CASA also offers large interior volumes with over 160 square metres of living space with exceptionally tall headroom. There are also more than 50 square metres of open space social areas with a loft-style ambience, incorporated in the glazed wall superstructure. This area also includes a lounge with large comfortable sofas, a dining table for ten to twelve guests, and the steering and navigation station.
The accommodation layout has been created for seven guests in three cabins, including the owners’ suite, double guest cabin and a twin guest cabin with a Pullman berth. There is also accommodation for four crew members. The interior decor boasts a combination of walnut wood with grey fabrics.
The propulsion includes engines running on low RPM providing the yacht with many advantages, including low vibration, low consumption, little maintenance as well as longevity. Additional comfort on board is being achieved thanks to the gyroscopic stabiliser.
WALLY CASA superyacht, once delivered, will cruise the Mediterranean this summer, following which she will move to the Caribbean, on her way to her home port in Baja California in Mexico.
