It could be an alternative salon for the Wallyshadow, which seems to be off their website right now?

Here is the other rendering that is on the website. For some reason it looks like a sailboat looking out onto one of their terraces.

"Magic Carpet Squared" wins the opener of the Wally racing season

Quote:
Palma de Mallorca, Spain – 7 Wallys participated in the 7th edition of the Hublot PalmaVela that had a total of 171 boats competing during four days in the Bay of the Balearic Island, perfectly organised by the Real Club Náutico of Palma de Mallorca.

Esense, Kenora, Indio, Y3K, Magic Carpet Squared, Tiketitoo and J One sailed six races that included windward-leeward and coastal courses. Three days were characterised by light air, and only the last one had a steady 12 knots breeze offering more suitable conditions for the largest Wallys.
The regatta marked the comeback in the racing circuit of Kenora that with Esense and Tiketitoo determined the debut of the Wally Class Performance Division, dedicated to the yachts carrying a limited number of sails and having a more cruising preparation.
Hublot Palmavela also staged the first competitive appearance of Indio, the stunning 100 footer launched last year, that fulfilled the expectations to be a very fast boat.

Magic Carpet Squared showed impressive performance and consistency both in the windward-leeward and costal courses, and in light and medium wind, finishing the series with three victories over six races! The renown yacht launched in 2002, is still highly competitive thanks to the perfect fine tuning and the impeccable maintenance.

As it often happens in the Wally Class, it was only the last day that decided the winners because two yachts were tied for the first place (J One and Magic Carpet Squared), another two were tied for the third standing (Indio and Y3K), and another two were tied for the Performance Division podium (Kenora and Tiketitoo)!
Once again, the close results show how competitive and balanced are the Wally Class regattas, thanks to the correct ratings resulting from a meticulous and detailed work of the Secretary.
The final standings are: Magic Carpet Squared 8 p, J One 10 p, Indio 12.5 p, Y3K 14p, Tiketitoo 27 p, Kenora 28p, Esense 33 p.

The next rendezvous is the Nespresso Cup in Portofino, May 7-9, the new regatta gathering for the very first time exclusively the Wally Class.

I read somewhere else that Hermes wanted to get out of the project due to their lack of interest in the project.

Project is still going forward, just without Hermes. Plan to sign contract this year for launch 2013.

Thanks for the info, so then, is there a new partner onboard or Wally will be simply doing it as a one-off build?

This is all I have seen (seems a Wally build with sales partners)---

"WALLY partners with leading brokers YCO and YPI to fully exploit WHY’s sales worldwide"

http://www.why-yachts.com/pdf/May-27-2010.pdf

I have sent an email out to the WHY team, and am still awaiting an answer. I will post as soon as I can.
