Wally recently debuted its wallypower50, expanding upon the builder’s series-launching wallypower58 and wallypower58x models. According to yacht builder, the wallypower50 blends the open design elements of its wallytender line as well as the extra space found on the wallytender58 yachts.
High-performing vessels are a Wally trademark, and to that end the wallypower50 is powered with twin 480 hp Volvo Penta IPS650 diesels. Wally reports this propulsion setup gives the yacht a 36-knot top-end speed and a 30-knot cruise speed. Like the outboard-powered wallypower58x, there is a wallypower50x model and it’s offered with either quad 400 hp Mercury outboards or quad 500 hp outboards. With the 400s, the builder says top hop is around 48 knots and it’s 50-plus knots with the 500s. The wallypower50’s deep-V hull form and plumb-bow should effectively dice and slice the chop.
Wallys are also known for maximizing onboard livability. With the wallypower50, there are two cockpit sun pads flanking a walkway on centerline. Foldout terraces expand the cockpit’s real estate by about 65 square feet. The cockpit is teak, making it comfortable for bare feet on warm days. Additionally, there is a retractable stairway in the swim platform for seamless water access. More sunning space is at the foredeck with an additional sun pad that has adjustable headrests.
Under the wallypower50’s hardtop, an L-shaped seating arrangement and dining table is to port creating the scene for alfresco meals. There is a bench seat to starboard. Total seating accommodations are for about eight guests. A helm station is forward and to port, and is equipped with two helm seats.
Belowdecks, there is a double berth in the forepeak as well as a full head with a shower for cruisers looking to spend a weekend, or longer, on the water. There is a galley for simple meal prep and a settee for lounging.
“At Wally, design has always been at the forefront of what we do, and what we do has always been at the forefront of the yachting industry,” Luca Bassani, Founder and Chief Designer of Wally, said in a press release. “The wallypower50 is another perfect example of form and function coming together, where stylish lines do not come at the expense of dynamic performance but complement it. And the further you drill down into the details, the more of Wally you find, from our distinctive angular windshield design up top to the option of our Magic Portholes below.”
Yes, he said magic portholes. Stay tuned for more.
