An American businessman passionate about the sport of sailing has been carefully watching the performance of both Hamiltonand Magic Carpet3 as they duelled for honours the race course.
Persuaded by their impressive performance around the cans he has signed up to join the club of the innovative box-ruled super yachts.
With that signature he became the third owner to commit to buying into the class.
Wally Class President Luca Bassani, said of the owner “He is a keen sailor and racer, determined to participate in all our regattas, as well as to cruise in the Mediterranean”.
Developed by Reichel Pugh naval architects with the exterior styling and interiors by Wally, the third wallycento differs from Magic Carpet3, designed by the same architect duo, in many aspects both technical and stylistic.
She features different hull lines with a rig that has been balanced accordingly. She has one rudder versus the two of Magic Carpet3. The shaft line is mechanical, whilst remaining retractable
On deck, the new design has been applied to the deckhouse and the coaming that is completely covered by teak to be integrated into the rest of the deck, resulting even slimmer.
Inside, the layout and the styling are very similar to those of Magic Carpet3, but the galley has been moved to the port side and the crew cabin to the starboard side to avoid any interference of the access to the engine room with the meal preparation.
The construction of the third and as yet unnamed yacht has already started at Green Marine, UK with the delivery of the male plug, while the lamination of the female mould on the male plug is scheduled in January, and the lamination of the hull around mid February.
The launching is set for June 2015.
