Wally celebrates successful launch of Wallycento Tango

Tango, the fourth unit of Wally's Wallycento fleet, has been successfully launched in a ceremony at the Persico Marine facility on the Ligurian west coast, with her stepping operation completed once she was on the water.

Along with Wally’s design and construction expertise, she boasts naval architecture by Mark Mills, construction technology by Persico Marine and interior design by Pinifarina. 

Luca Bassani, president of Wally said, “Tango turned out exactly how we envisaged her when we started developing the project; super sleek lines and aggressive overall appeal conveying her high-performance DNA.

“Additionally, our form-reflects-function approach is epitomized in Tango’s sheer flush deck in the like of the iconic Esense; Besides enhancing the purity of the design, it would facilitate the manoeuvres while racing. We look forward to the sea-trials and test the predicated superior performance of our new superyacht.”

Mark Mills of Mills Design said of Wally’s naval architecture, “We developed a radical proposal combining dramatic deck geometry with a novel interior layout for the most efficient result within the Wallycento box-rule, integrated with the structure to a level not yet seen in a yacht of this size. That proposal very quickly became Tango, after huge amounts of detail development, but very little deviation from the original vision for a sleek, light and exciting sailing machine.” 

Her interior layout places the main salon aft, the engine room and service area amidships, and the guest accommodation forward. Pininfaria’s interior work reflects the visionary approach of Tango’s owner, with inside-out consistency. As such, she has been developed with ultra-light interiors. 

Scheduled for delivery to her new owner at the end of August, Tango will soon undergo sea trials. She will then be premiered at the Yacht Club de Monaco on 26th September 2017, and the first day of the Monaco Yacht Show on 27th September. 

She will make her racing debut at the Les Voiles de Saint Tropez, while she will be pitted against three other Wallycentros.

Wally has also recently shared details about its 44m Wally 145 sailing yacht, which is under development for an experienced yachtsman with naval architecture by German Frers.
