The latest WallyCento Superyacht is a sleek, light, and exciting sailing machine. The superyacht brings a fresh mindset to the Wallycento design question.
The Tango yacht, the 4th unit of the highly competitive Wallycento fleet, gets ready for the sea-trial before the delivery to her passionate owner, scheduled at the end of August. This new Wally features super sleek lines and aggressive overall appeal . The new Wallycento boasts Mark Mill’s naval architecture, Pininfarina interior design and Persico Marine construction technology: the perfect mix to produce a magnificent speed-machine. Tango’s interior layout places the main salon aft, the engine room and service area amidships, and the guest accommodation forward.
Tango will be premiered at the Yacht Club de Monaco, on the 26 September and in the morning of the Monaco Yacht Show opening day (27 September), while she makes her racing debut at the Les Voiles de Saint Tropez, where she faces the high competition of the other three Wallycentos.
“…Our form-reflects-function approach is epitomised in Tango’s sheer flush deck in the like of the iconic Esense: besides enhancing the purity of the design, it would facilitate the manoeuvres while racing. We look forward to the sea-trials and test the predicted superior performance of our new superyacht,” says says
Luca Bassani, Wally President .
The Wally portfolio of yachts under construction includes two sailing yachts, the Wally 145 and the Wally 93 to be launched in May 2019 and in spring 2018 respectively, the fifth unit of the 27 Wallyace, and two 52 wallypowers. Additionally, units of the new Wally tender X are under way.
Tango introduces a new naval architect in the Wally projects, Mark Mills of Mills design, with whom the Monegasque yachting disruptor shares the same vision of innovations that can be applied to this type of yachts.
“We developed a radical proposal combining dramatic deck geometry with a novel interior layout for the most efficient result within the Wallycento box-rule, integrated with the structure to a level not yet seen in a yacht of this size,” said Mark Mills of Mills Design. “That proposal very quickly became Tango, after huge
amounts of detail development, but very little deviation from the original vision for a sleek, light, and exciting sailing machine.”
“A relevant Tango’s technical attribute is to have the immersed volume of the hull more forward than the previous Wallycentos, and the aft lines are cleaner and more stretched: an hydrodynamic option that I much appreciate” adds Luca Bassani. “Mark’s initial idea to have a displacement close to the minimum required by the box-rule, combined with the maximum sail plan allowed, would bring some advantages in the typical lights airs of the Mediterranean conditions”.
The team of Pininfarina nautical division engaged the challenge to develop outstanding ultra-light interiors that would match the superyacht DNA. “The interior design of this Wallycento challenged our team to achieve the perfect balance of performance and comfort.” says Paolo Pininfarina,Pininfarina Group
President. “Thanks to the selection of the materials and the innovative solutions of the interior decoration delivering both function and aesthetics, we generated a true thoroughbred of the sea, ultra-light and super performing, perfectly suitable for cruising as well as for racing. We are very proud of this accomplishment further confirming theexcellence of our nautical division.”
