Just the other night I was watching the Michael Bay blockbuster, “The Island”. I generally loathe Bay’s films as they’re more often than not a gross display of money in film making and rarely focus on the story. Yet, I enjoyed the flick. I also enjoyed the boat that was depicted in the film. And as it happens, today I stumbled upon the very maker of that boat, Wally Yachts.
This is the Wally Power 55, arguably a smaller, lesser version of the one in the film, the 118 WallyPower. Measuring over 55′ in length, this boat has a max cruising speed of 40 knots (about 46mph) thanks to four Volvo IPS600 engines. Not too shabby for a vessel of this size. A generous amount of deck space surrounds the cockpit, which is wrapped in a massive windscreen. A hydraulic ladder, which is fitted seamlessly into the deck, lifts and extends into the water for those looking to cool off on hot summer days. Underneath is a surprisingly roomy interior, with space for up to two or three cabins.
Cost you ask? Likely millions.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
