  • Two Wally Class yachts which will compete in the Menorca Maxi arrived in Mahón Harbour Menorca yesterday.

    Ryokan 2

    Ryokan 2 is one of the most iconic Wally: she won in 2008 the ADI Compasso d’Oro (the World’s most important award for quality and design) and in 2009 the German Design Preis (the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany). These two important awards make Ryokan 2 a unique product in the yachting industry.

    Her extraordinary exterior and interior design and styling are truly coherent with the overall appeal of the yacht. She is the flush deck, canting keel, three-cabin version of the Wally80 design introduced in 2004. This design offers big volumes without compromising performance: the large beam provides for wide social areas on deck enhancing cruising comforts.

    Ryokan 2 is wider at the waterline than most of the existing 80-footers; this provides for more volume inside and a generally better stability, which makes her a very easy and friendly boat to sail for a limited crew in any weather condition. The canting keel improves the righting moment with a relatively small draft, as required by a cruising yacht.

    Ryokan 2 is a regular participant in the Wally Class racing circuit always with an excellent and sportsman-like pro-am crew.

    J One

    This 24-meter sloop is one of the first Wally ever launched (1997), and after 17 years of intensive sailing both cruising and racing, she still retains all her incredible performance and contemporary appeal.

    Originally Magic Carpet (she is the first of the three Wallys ordered by Sir Lindsay Owen-Jones), J One fully reflects the Wally DNA of easy and fun sailing. The simplicity and ingenuity of her design are the result of highly sophisticated and technologically advanced systems.

    The deck is flush and uncluttered from bow to stern, and features only four winches recalling a huge dinghy sail boat.The interior style is fresh and bright, and provides accommodation for six/seven guests (owner’s stateroom plus two double cabins) and two crew.

    J One’s relentless collection of victories in the Wally Class circuit includes more than one edition of Giraglia Rolex Cup, Les Voiles de Saint Tropez, Maxi Yachts Rolex Cup, Palmavela, Pirelli Trophy, Zegna Trophy. She is definitely one of the Wallys to beat!
