Launch of Barong D, the latest generation hi performance superyacht

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

Marina di Ravenna, Italy  – The new Wally 110 Barong D was successfully launched during a private ceremony hosted by her enthusiastic owners, gathering all the people involved in the design and construction of this fantastic sailing #superyacht.

The 33,5-meter Barong D is the third #wally delivered to a faithful repeat client, a truly passionate and experienced yachtsman who replaced his #wally 94 Barong C, which in turn in 2005 substituted his first #wally, the 80-footer Barong B of 2000.

The Frers naval architecture created the latest generation hi performance super yacht characterised by the wide hull uniquely camouflaged by classic lines reflecting Barong D’s cruising attitude.

Wally employed all its advanced  know-how to produce a fully equipped cruising super #yacht displacing only 65 tons: two tons lighter than predicted, and approximately 35% less than the other yachts in this size range! – enthusiastically describes Luca Bassani, #wally President and CEO – We succeeded in delivering a truly exceptional performance cruiser that accommodates in full comfort the owners who spend several months of the year on-board. “   

The full 3D engineering optimised both the design and the construction.  The construction used the latest pre-preg carbon technology throughout the #yacht. Advanced technologies and materials have been used also for both the electrical system resulting with light weight switchboards and cables and a specific #yacht monitor & control system, and for the hydraulic system that provides the 350 bar max pressure and the electro valves controlled by a dedicated software to optimise the speed of the manoeuvres. The interiors have been built in blocks to achieve the maximum quality while reducing the weight. High modulus carbon mast and furling boomcarbon riggingtitanium deck hardware and fittingsresin and vacuum bonding of the teak wood to the deck,  lightened interiors (PVC core joinery, carbon soles and ceiling supports): every component has been meticulously developed to produce such a state-of-the-art super yacht reflecting the Wally DNA to improve the on the water enjoyment while increasing the safety.

“Additionally, the new #wally 110 features all the #wally technologies that we have developed since we started in 1994 –explains Luca Bassani - through the extensive R&D programme unique to our brand, that is constantly carried out to further improve the product. These features, that we pioneered and are now adopted by the whole of the industry,  include  the #wally flush-deck, the #wally sail handling system with the self-tacking jib and push-button sail trimming via the hydraulic rams, the #wally submarine anchor, the rig with swept back spreaders and no running backstays.”

“As it often happens with happy owners –continues Bassani - Barong D is the larger evolution of their previous yachts, featuring similar style and deck and interior layouts.” On deck, the new #wally 110 features the slim teaked coach roof, the large social cockpit amidships, the manoeuvring and navigation area with four winches (dedicated to the halyards and the gennaker sheets) and the twin helm stations, and the aft sun bathing area.

The interior layout reflects the owners’ extensive cruising requirements, featuring the forward Owner’s suite with two large separate beds to favour the comfort under sail, a double guest cabins on each side, and a spacious main saloon amidships. The crew and service area with galley, crew mess, two double cabins, and the engine room is aft to provide max privacy. All cabins have en-suites. The interior styling is developed by #wally and combines pickled oak for the joinery with dark blue upholstery and gloss carbon soles.

The outside colour scheme is also very elegant combining the majestic blue of the hull with the blonde teak and beige upholstery.

Barong D is the 44th sailing yacht launched by the Monegasque brand.

Her delivery is scheduled at the end of May, after two weeks of sea trials.

Wally is currently negotiating three new sailing yachts, from 86 to 141 feet, and has two boats under construction, wallycento4 and the upgraded 52wallypower.
