Wally 50-meter sloop "Better Place" launches
The long awaited 50-meter Wally sailing vessel has now been brought into the open and now has her -nearly 68-meter- mast stepped. The stepping of the mast of "Better Place" occured at ISA's yard in Italy.
The exclusive 50-meter superyacht Better Place
has been equipped with a four-spreader high modulus carbon mast, a Hall Oceanfurl boom – also the largest ever built by Hall, delivered by the New Zealand factory – and a unique mast collar to support all halyards and sheets.
Mounted on the spreaders stand 18 antennas for the ultimate monitoring and navigation systems. The mast stepping, carefully planned and supervised by Hall Med’s manager Andrea Merani, was smooth and neat, even if, with the boat on the hard, it was necessary to hoist the mast butt 12-meters high to feed the mast collar on the deck. Shroud loads on this kind of mast can reach up to 90 tons each!
