Boats and yachts of every size put their owners in closer connection to the sea. So, why is it a big deal aboard Private GG? The fifth 27 Wallyace from Wally places the owner’s suite aft, leading directly out to the swim platform.
Sliding glass doors here certainly invite the owner to step outside as much as possible. Considering the megayacht measures 90 feet (27.33 meters), it’s an enviable arrangement. Also consider that the suite spans the full 25’4” (7.75-meter) beam, encompassing 355 square feet (33 square meters).
Private GG is just the latest Wally to embrace this indoor-outdoor living concept. Interestingly, Wally has prioritized the idea since launching the sailing superyacht Tiketitan in 1998.
Private GG makes the connection in other ways, too. For instance, she has larger windows lining her main deck compared to the previous 27 Wallyaces. Enhancing the feel, there’s excellent headroom. Further enhancing it, Alberto Pinto Interior Design created a light, chic, yet casual ambiance. Greyed oak and satin-finished white lacquer dominate. Chrome detailing as well as red lacquer inside cabinetry provide sophisticated surprises. Private GG marks the first time the studio and shipyard have collaborated. Interestingly, the studio also convinced Wally to move the stairs leading down to the double and twin guest staterooms. This yields more usable space on the main deck.
Sea trials should prove Private GG capable of a 12-knot cruise and range at that speed of 2,000 nautical miles. Her twin Caterpillar C12s should also permit 3,800 nautical miles at 9 knots. Notably, the engine room sits directly beneath the tender garage, still amidships.
The owner of Private GG takes delivery soon, planning to cruise the Med this summer. In the meantime, for a better sense of what the 27 Wallyace series is all about, check out this video from last year.
