Wallypower 118 - the coolest luxury yacht in the world

Published 2023-02-17 by Zdravko Anticic

The Wallypower 118 is a luxury yacht that gained widespread attention after it was featured in the 2005 science-fiction thriller movie "The Island." The yacht was designed and built by the Italian yacht manufacturer Wally Yachts and was launched in 2006. It is an ultra-modern and luxurious vessel that is designed to combine speed, style, and comfort.

In the movie "The Island," the Wallypower 118 is the personal yacht of the main antagonist, Dr. Merrick, played by Sean Bean. The yacht is depicted as an impressive vessel, sleek and stylish with a futuristic design that is fitting for the movie's sci-fi theme.

It measures 118 feet in length, thus the name, with a beam of 26 feet, and a draft of 5 feet. It can accommodate up to ten guests in five staterooms, and it has a crew of six. The yacht is powered by three gas turbines that generate a total of 16,800 horsepower, allowing it to reach a top speed of 60 knots, or about 70 miles per hour, making it one of the fastest yachts on the open seas.

It's exterior design is striking and unique, with sleek lines and a minimalist style. The superstructure is made of carbon fiber, which makes the yacht lightweight and adds to its impressive speed. It's innovative propulsion system includes water jets instead of traditional propellers, which further contribute to its speed and maneuverability.

The interior is equally impressive, with a contemporary minimalist design, much like the outside. The main salon features floor-to-ceiling windows that offer stunning views of the surrounding water. The yacht's state-of-the-art entertainment system includes a plasma screen TV, satellite TV, and a surround-sound system. The master suite is located on the main deck and features a king-size bed, an en-suite bathroom, and a private balcony. The guest cabins are located on the lower deck and offer similar amenities and luxurious finishes.

It has become an icon in the world of yachting, renowned for its futuristic design and advanced technology. In "The Island," the Wallypower 118 is portrayed as the ultimate symbol of power and luxury, a fitting representation of the antagonist's character.

In conclusion, this is a remarkable yacht that has captured the imagination of people worldwide. Its characteristics have made it a standout vessel in the yachting world, and its appearance in a hollywood production has only added to its mystique.

The price of the 118 Wallypower is US$33 million for the triple gas turbine version, or $22 million for twin diesels. It has a range of 1,500 nautical miles (2,800 km) at 9 knots (17 km/h), or 300 nautical miles (560 km) at 60 knots (110 km/h). Fuel capacity is 22,000 liters (5800 US gallons). At the maximum speed of 60 knots (110 km/h) the gas turbine uses 15 US gallons / 58 liters of fuel per nautical mile, 900 gallons / 3500 liters per hour. The boat displaces only 95 tons because of the sophisticated building technology that uses a hybrid structure to save weight, and can accommodate six guests and six crew.

It is worth noting that the final cost of a Wallypower 118 can be significantly higher than the base price due to the customization options available. Owners of the yacht can choose from a range of options such as interior finishes, materials, and technology upgrades, all of which can add to the cost of the yacht.

Exactly one has been built.
