Monaco-based Wally had its official debut for the wallypower58 at the Venice Boat Show in late May.
Previous wallypower models have taken design cues from the angular wallytender. The wallypower58, which replaces the wallypower52, is instead an evolution of design elements in the wallypower118 that launched in 2003.
“At Wally, we often say that our yachts are 20 years ahead of their time, and, in this case, that’s very much the reality, as the new wallypower58 honors the aesthetic of the groundbreaking wallypower118, some two decades after it was introduced to the world,” Stefano de Vivo, Wally’s managing director, stated in a press release.
One new feature is what Wally calls a “magic porthole.” The yard wanted to minimize openings that can spoil hull lines, so it removed the openings completely and instead installed gimbal-stabilized 4K cameras on each side of the boat. Imagery is projected onto screens that are mounted to port and starboard in the salon, creating views of the outdoors without any portholes.
“We are very proud of this innovative and effective solution that requires less maintenance than portholes, no risk of damaging glass while docking alongside and, above all, maximum privacy both at anchor and in the port,” de Vivo said.
Other features aboard the wallypower58 include folding bulwarks that increase aft-deck space by 270 square feet; a partially covered, air-conditioned cockpit with seating for 12 to 16 people; and a hydraulic stern platform. A day head is below, and the en suite master stateroom has a queen-size berth. An optional guest stateroom or crew cabin can be located to port, amidships, with a reduced-size salon.
What’s the power package on the wallypower58? It can be ordered with triple Volvo Penta IPS700s or IPS800s, reportedly providing cruising speeds of more than 30 knots.
