Known for its quick and aggressive ships, Monaco’s Wally Yachts has officially launched Galateia (the third ship in its popular Wallycento series that includes Magic Carpet). The 100-foot Galateia is the lightest sailing yacht in its class and currently holds the fastest time at a regatta in Majorca.
Like its predecessors, the boat is extremely technical and ideal for racing. Built like a true maxi yacht, Galateia is equipped with a newly designed bow thruster that helps reduce wind impact and improves the ship’s systems and cruising capabilities, while a redesigned helm provides the helmsperson with more stability and control in tough conditions.
A large exterior deck provides seating for up to 10 people, and the interiors can comfortably sleep six guests in a spacious owner’s suite and two en suite guest cabins. Upon completing its sea trials, Galateia will spend the winter season in the Caribbean competing in superyacht regattas. (wally.com)
