Launched in 2002 by Monaco-based Wally Yachts, the WallyPower 118 is a high performance luxury superyacht combining high-end technology with a striking design. The radical yacht has now been listed for sale via Edmiston for €12,500,000 (about $18,200,000). The sleek yacht lets you cruise swiftly from one destination to another at a speed of 60 knots in both the flat seas and rough waters. The yacht enjoys all the spacious comforts of a mega yacht together with the nautical characteristics of a Coast Guard boat.

The WallyPower is driven by 3 gas turbines, producing a massive 16,800hp of total thrust, and it has two auxiliary diesel engines. The exhaust system is made of titanium that saves weight while being very resistant to the high temperatures generated by the gas turbines. The sleek lines of the WallyPower 118 are the outcome of an extensive R&D program that included the tank testing at the SSPA facility in Sweden, and smoke testing in the Ferrari Wind Tunnel Facility in Italy. The luxury yacht is more famous as the “Renovatio” from the science-fiction film The Island.

The WallyPower 118 has a chameleon-like exterior paint that is dark metallic green, but changes with respect to the light, reflections and landscape around it. The deckhouse features a saloon aft, a dining table for 14, relaxing nooks and entertainment areas. While dining, the guests can enjoy the panoramic 360-degree views. Undoubtedly, the WallyPower 118 is one of the coolest and the most contemporary yachts we’ve seen ever.

Thanks, Kevin [Edmiston]
