Wally 45-meter "Saudade" makes appearance at Monaco
"Saudade" made her first appearance at the Monaco Yacht Show, where she was one of the stars. The new 148-foot (45-meter) sloop is the largest Wally built so far, and is a traditional blue-water yet high performance mega yacht, developed from the hull lines of the breakthrough Esense.
The medium-light displacement (150 tons – 308,647 lbs) combined with the lifting keel (from 4.20 to 6.20 meters - 13’ 9” to 20’ 4”) produces a fast yacht with large volumes and full equipments for extensive round the world cruising.
The sail plan includes the 110 per cent jib trimmed through Magic Trims, while the rigging is in PBO. The furling boom simplifies the handling of the big mainsail. The long-distance equipment includes very large water tanks for a capacity of 3,000 l – 793 US gal on each side of the yacht, that can be used as water ballast to further increase the performance.
The deck is characterized by the low and aggressive pilothouse, and a rigid removable bimini is developed as an extension of the deck house. The wide cockpit door giving access to the main saloon enhances the inside-outside living concept typical of Wally, while flooding the interiors with natural light along with the large windows of the deckhouse.
The interior layout provides for the guest quarter aft with the master suite, the master office, and two double guest cabins, for the raised saloon amidships with 360 degree view, and for the crew quarter and service area forward. The simple yet stylish interior decoration follows the owner’s brief to have a homey and comfortable feeling.
The Wally Research & Development conducted an extensive study on the sound and vibration insulation of the large engine room to obtain a very low noise and vibration levels, only 48 decibel in the main salon and the guest cabins. Two tenders can be stored onboard Saudade
: one forward in the recessed garage, and one aft in the stern. For more information:
