The Power Is Unleashed

The power of the newly launched WallyCento "Magic Carpet3" was unleashed as she stole the show with a stunning performance at the Gaastra Palmavela Regatta which ran from the 1st - 5th May. She beat her closest competitor by 5 to 20 minutes in every race during the regatta and this is only just two weeks after she was launched. If she can do this now what will she be able to do later in the season? We think a lot of winning.

"I'm highly satisfied with the outcome of this groundbreaking project, that engaged myself and my team for over two years" says owner and helmsman Sir Lindsay Owen-Jones "Magic Carpet3 is precisely what I wanted and expected her to be, totally fulfilling my goals and briefs. She is the natural evolution of my breed of yachts: very fast, beautiful, comfortable, technologically advanced, and easy to sail".

The WallyCento is the newest generation of the racer-cruiser which is developed by Reichel Pugh Yacht Design and Magic Carpet3 shows the formidable Reichel Pugh race design pedigree as owner Sir Owen-Jones explains:  "As a truly passionate yachtsman and lover of performance and technology, the starting point of the development of Magic Carpet3, that is my third Wally, was the brief to design the fastest cruiser-racer in the World, with no limitations or other requirements." explains Sir Owen-Jones "We selected Reichel Pugh because they have great experience of designing very high performance maxi racers. They successfully interpreted the WallyCento box-rule and produced along with Wally, an explosively fast boat on all points of sail and in all wind conditions".
On deck she can accommodate up to ten guests comfortably for formal dining and down below the saloon/dining area, lounge, navigation and office separates the service area aft from the guest accommodation that includes two double en-suite guest cabins and the owners suite with en-suite and shower room.
