Philippe Briand Naval Architecture and Yacht Designs has released a new concept design for the WallyCento racing class. Designed specifically with regatta racing in mind, the new P100 will accompany Wally Yacht’s competitive fleet of sailing yachts.
Following a thorough assessment of the concepts form, Philippe used computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis, as well as velocity prediction programme (VP) calculations, to create an all-new superyacht P100 concept design, which boasts a lower freeboard and narrower beam than is commonly seen in the class.
The vessel will weigh two tonnes less than the upper limit dictated by class rules, and is expected to be 20 seconds faster over a mile than reference yacht, Magic Carpet.
Philippe Briand said, “We considered the merits of each element in the P100 design, using technological advancements and through analysis to create a truly unique concept. The combination of technical enhancements and design features results in a beautiful project that promises top competitive performances.”
The interior of the P100 boasts all the luxury amenities of a superyacht, yet makes use of light materials in the ceiling and wall finishes to qualify for the class. The interiors feature moulded carbon fibre furniture, which is light and robust, with a feeling of softness.
