Wally Launches a Second 100 foot Superyacht

The new 30 metre sloop Y3K from Wally has been craned into the water at Ancona. A development of the current Y3K she has been built for an owner who is a truly passionate sailor and enjoys cruising with his family. He will use this boat to race competitively as he has done with his previous yachts and the yacht is expected to make her first appearance at the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup in Porto Cervo, September 6-12.

The new high volume Y3K yacht carries a powerful sail plan and features many underwater appendages derived from those developed to be carried by yachts competing in the last America’s Cup. She has a trim-tab fixed keel, PBO rigging is in PBO, and a carbon fibre mast developed by High Modulus. Her 3-metre long bowsprit allows for the carriage of more downwind sail area. Her hull has been constructed using the latest composite technology with pre-preg carbon to keep the displacement to just 57 tons

Yacht Y3K’s deck layout features; twin helming positions, a slim coach roof with a central skylight flooding natural light to the central corridor down below, and a large cockpit amidships with table and seats that can accommodate eight people. Those enjoying the exhilarating sail the yacht is expected to offer can use a second and slightly smaller cockpit aft, in complete safety.

The Y3K interior accommodates up to eight guests and four crew. The owner stateroom is forward with a large queen size bed, plenty of storage cabinets, and a forward en-suite bathroom. Two identical guest double cabins are on either side of the central corridor, each featuring twin beds a Pullman for occasional use and an en-suite bathroom. Owner’s and guests cabins are separated from the crew, navigation and service areas by a door to enhance privacy and quite.

    Very interesting news Michael!

    It’s a shame INDIO, the first Wally 100 hull, will not be there at the 2009 Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup to trade blows with Y3K – that would be interesting. Be great to see them racing together…still there are some very nice entries for the race, this year, including the Wally OPEN SEASON…should be a good one this year: http://www.liveyachting.com/2009-entry-list-for-the-maxi-yacht-rolex-cup

    Press release from Wally about Y3K:

    Ancona, Italy – The second 100 footer (30 meter) is in the water after only one month from the delivery of Indio: the new Y3K was successfully launched during a private ceremony.

    She is a further development of the current Y3K: the owner is a truly passionate sailor who enjoys cruising with his family as well as competitively racing.

    The new Y3K is designed to perform all-round: the sail plan is very powerful, the hull is characterised by big volumes, the appendages derive from those of the latest America’s Cup Class boats with the trim-tab fixed keel, the rigging is in PBO, the mast is in super high modulus carbon fiber, and the 3-meter long bowsprit allows for more downwind sail area.

    The deck layout features from bow to stern, the slim coachroof with the central skylight to give natural light to the central corridor down below, the social cockpit amidships with table and seats for eight people, the twin helmstations, the flush deck area between the sleek coamings with the central skylight over the main saloon, and the aft raised Terrace on the sea, which serves as a second cockpit to safely enjoy sailing.

    The interiors accommodate six-eight guests and four crew. The owner stateroom is forward with a large queen size bed, plenty of storage cabinets, and the forward en-suite. Two identical guest double cabins are on either side of the central corridor, both with two beds and one pullman and the en-suite. The night area (owner’s and guests cabins) is separated from the crew, navigation and service area by a door to enhance privacy and quite.

    The main salon is aft and opens onto the raised Terrace on the sea.

    The Wally 100 is an extremely versatile project suitable for the most competitive regattas as well as for round-the-world cruising. It comes into two versions: the flush –deck (Y3K, Indio, the new Y3K) and deck-house characterised by four guest cabins (+ two crew cabins). A truly high performance blue-water yacht.

    The construction of the new Y3K used the latest advanced composite technology with pre-preg carbon to keep the displacement to only 57 tons.

    The Wally 100.3 is developed from the lines of Y3K and is designed to perform all-round: the sail plan is very powerful, the hull is characterised by big volumes, and the appendages derive from those of the latest America’s Cup Class boats

    The deck layout features from bow to stern, the slim coachroof with the central skylight to give natural light to the central corridor down below, the social cockpit amidships with table and seats for eight people, the twin helmstations, the flush deck area between the sleek coamings with the central skylight over the main saloon, and the aft raised Terrace on the sea, which serves as a second cockpit to safely enjoy sailing.

    The construction of the Wally 100.3 uses the latest advanced composite technology with pre-preg carbon to keep the displacement to only 57 tons.

    The interiors accommodate six-eight guests and four crew. The owner stateroom is forward with a large queen size bed, plenty of storage cabinets, and the forward en-suite. The interior styling combines carbon fiber, cherry wood with the grain running horizontally, white lacquered ceilings and bulkheads, beige upholstery and beige carpets in the cabins.

    Yacht Y3K will make her first appearance at the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup in Porto Cervo, September 6-12.
