70 WallyPower Open For Sale

Saturday, September 22nd, 2007

My dream yacht is for sale! I am fairly certain that only one of the open version models has ever been produced. It’s unfortunate that 2.7 Euros is equivalent to 3.8 dollars and also that I don’t live in Monaco.

The 70 WallyPower Open is powered by two MTU diesel engines generating 3,000 Hp driving KaMeWa water-jets, providing a speed that during the first sea trials reached 47.5 knots half load, and 45 knots full load at continuous duty with a consumption of only 250 litres – 66 US gallons per hour!

The advert image actually doesn’t show the open design of the yacht as well as this image does. I especially like the carbon fiber dining table.
