• The first of the nine Wally Class yachts which will compete in the Menorca Maxi arrived in Mahón Harbour Menorca yesterday afternoon.

    Sensei is a 29-meter sloop launched in 2005 that since the beginning has been successfully participating in the Wally Class activity. The hull lines of Sensei provide for great stability and performance in all conditions: even with the cruising sail configuration, this boat can easily reach 14-16 knots of speed in 11-15 knots of true wind.
    The yacht features only six winches that can be used alternatively for the 105 per cent jib, the halyards, the geannaker and Code 0 sails. The helm stations are equipped with the Wally designed push-button console incorporating all the controls for the sail trimming, the jib furler, the trim tab and the engine handle.

    The coach roof of Sensei is very slim following the request of the owner to have the deck as flush as possible. The outside and inside arrangements are defined by the double cockpit: the traditional one forward the helm stations, and the Terrace-on-the-sea aft.
    The vast Terrace-on-the-sea is the stern arrangement characterising Sensei’s deck: it allows for the guests not involved in the manoeuvring to safely move and enjoy the sailing without getting in the way when going inside to the saloon, which has its own companionway access through the ‘wall of mirrors’. With all the cushions in place, the Terrace-on-the-sea becomes an enormous sun pad to comfortably enjoy open-air living both at anchor and under sail.

    It can be accessed from the deck through two large and safe steps and from the salon through the aft companionway.
    Sensei is a very competitive yacht and she has won more than one edition of Palmavela and Les Voiles de Saint Tropez regattas.
