The most competitively priced Wally Yacht in her size range, she is in superb condition. Dark Shadow is a tour-de-force when it comes to sailing regattas, proving her success at world-class events including the St Barth Bucket and Voiles de St Tropez. In expectation of the upcoming racing season, she was
equipped with a brand new set of racing sails. Outside of the regattas, Dark Shadow is a very popular charter yacht.
Wally is renowned across the world for its innovative design and state-of-the-art carbon fiber technology. Her clean, modern interior was designed by Foster + Partners. Her distinctive grey colour perfectly complements the black carbon-fiber floors, helm and sails. She is the result of a true powerhouse design team, with her exterior design by Luca Bassani and her naval architecture from German Frers.
Dark Shadow benefits from excellent volume for her size of 77 GRT, with her generous interior layout offering a full beam master forward and a very large interior social space. Her generous exterior areas include a formal dining space, a large seating area, sunpads, and a swim platform. She can accommodate up to six people with five crew members.
Located forward ahead of the saloon. Double berth to port. Sofa and vanity unit to starboard. Continue forward into the en-suite with full height shower over a custom carbon fibre bath.
There are two guest cabins located aft of the saloon each with twin berths and en-suite .
Located aft on the port side. There is provision for four crew in two bunk cabins and separated head and shower compartment.
