The new WallyCento designed by the Philippe Briand

P100Philippe Briand is man responsible for the WallyCento. Briand and his team carried out extensive in-depth CFD analysis and VPP computations on all aspects of the new craft.

This not only produced several iterations of the hull form but also ultimately resulted in a lower free board and narrower beam than the previous craft in the class.

The new WallyCento weighs in at 2 tons less than the upper limit dictated by class rules ypp and is mooted to be 20 seconds faster over a mile than Magic Carpet3.

The weight reduction is partly the product of a new roller coaster wave form for the teak decking, once again dictated by the class rules to maintain the Wally fleet’s elegant looks.
