When is one yacht not enough? Apparently the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show is a case in point, at least in the opinion of Wally, which plans to debut two new megayachts.
The first and largest is the lady above: Y3K, a 100-foot sloop boasting a German Frers design. If the yacht’s name is familiar, that’s because she’s the successor to a 94-footer (now known as Angel’s Share) also built by Wally. With more than 5,300 square feet of sail area, she differs from her predecessor in two main ways, namely a forward master (with two queen beds) and an aft saloon.
Next in size is the latest incarnation of the 70 WallyPower. Seen here, she’s based in large part on Wally’s Lunch Boat, which was introduced two years ago at the show. She’s available with two interior layouts: one with three staterooms (master forward plus two twins aft), the other with a VIP stateroom forward and a full-beam master suite, complete with his and her heads, replacing the twin staterooms. In either configuration, twin 1,520-hp MTUs coupled to two KaMeWa waterjets are expected to deliver a 40-knot top speed.
Wally will have Y3K and the 70 WallyPower (as well as two “small” debuts, the 47 WallyPower and the newest WallyTender) alongside its stand at the Quai Chicane.
