M/Y GALEOCERDO 36m super yacht by Wally Yachts

The hull of the 118 WallyPower is the result of an extensive R&D program including tank testing at the SSPA facility in Gothenburg, Sweden, and smoke testing in the Ferrari Wind Tunnel Facility in Maranello, Italy. It is stable at speed as a result of the deep V (22 degrees) hull shape and a straight stem bow designed to pierce waves.

The air inlets of the gas turbines were optimised to minimise any turbulence and back flow of the exhaust gas on deck and living areas. The bottom of the hull is solid fibreglass. Topsides, from the waterline up, are hybrid fibreglass/carbon composite with balsa core. The deck is a Nomex/full carbon composite. The deck superstructure is made of a carbon frame to which glass panels are glued. The glass is composed of Lexan and a triple laminate of glass. The interior bulkheads and cabin soles carry no structural loads, so they are made of thin wood and laminate veneer skins with cores. The bath fixtures and dining tables are made from carbon composites to reduce weight.

The paint finish is metallic dark green, and changes reflections and colour depending on the light and landscape. The 118’s deck, cockpit, navigation, dining and saloon areas have been designed as one continuous element. The open space incorporates three areas, from stern to bow: the saloon, the dining/seating area, and the navigation cockpit. There is a 360-degree view from the dining area. Underneath the 8-place dining table there is a skylight which illuminates the lower corridor. The dining and lounge cockpit is forward of the superstructure for privacy, and away from the heat of engines. Two fore dining tables can be mechanically lowered into place in the bow.


Inside, the owner’s stateroom is forward, lighted by a top skylight, and has a king-size bed and side cabinets. Two identical guest cabins have queen-size beds and en-suite bathrooms. The stainless steel galley (kitchen), which includes the crew mess, has an oven, stove, and refrigerators.

Technical specifications

The price of the 118 Wallypower is US$24.83 million for the triple gas turbine version, or $16.55 million for twin diesels. It has a range of 1,500 nautical miles (2,800 km) at 9 knots (17 km/h), or 300 nautical miles (560 km) at 60 knots (110 km/h). Fuel capacity is 22,000 liters (5800 US gallons). At the maximum speed of 60 knots (110 km/h) the gas turbine uses 15 US gallons / 58 liters of fuel per nautical mile, 900 gallons / 3500 liters per hour. The boat displaces 95 tons and can accommodate 6 guests and 6 crew.

Awards

The 118 WallyPower won the MYDA, Millennium Yacht Design Award,organised by Seatec (the yachting and shipping technology show of Carrarafiere) for the “Layout of the Third Millennium.” It was the sole boat in the October 9 2004 to January 16 2005 San Francisco Museum of Modern Art architecture and design exhibition, ‘Glamour: Fabricating Affluence’. The 118 was the “Renovatio” in the 2005 science-fiction film The Island.

Description

The WallyPower has followed an intensive and exceptional Research & Development programme that involved specialised facilities (like SSPA in Sweden, the Ferrari Wind Tunnel Facility) to test the new features of the yacht. As a result, the 118-foot (36-meter) WallyPower stands out for her technology as well as for her contemporary design.

The construction of this high perfomance megayacht is in advanced composites. The propulsion system includes three gas turbines Detroit Diesel generating 16,800 HP and 60 knots of speed, and two auxiliary diesel engines (Cummins of 370 Hp each) for the manoeuvring, and for long range delivery at 9 knots of speed. The gas turbines are equipped with titanium exhausts to provide for light weight and resistance to the system high temperature, and to allow the cooling the gas turbines with sea water. The hi-tech exhaust system of the 118 WallyPower has been developed by the official supplier of the Swedish Navy.

The grey-green metallic colour of the hull contributes to the appeal of the 118 WallyPower that features unique lines enhancing her nautical characteristics, and a glass superstructure exploiting the Wally concept of inside-outside living spaces. The superstructure is built in carbon fiber and covered by laminated glass, and conceals in the top section the navigation radars and antennas in the navy style.

The forward deck of the yacht features the cockpit with a large bimini and pop-up tables and sliding seats: this system provides the opportunity to modify the layout according to various situations and requirements, from dining into sun-bathing or into living area. The large tender garage with lifting door is also in the forward deck, and serves as an open-air gym as well. The sections of the bulwarks alongside the superstructure, fold down to broaden the view from the salon, and to serve as a diving platform. The aft sliding gangway serves as very large passerelle when completely extended and as swimming ladder when folded .
