From Dream to Angel’s Share: Ethereal Evolution

Built to strategic high performance racing standards and the clean design eye of Wally Yachts, the 2009 launch of the svelte, 140-foot racing sloop Wally Dream captured the 2010 Nautical Design Award for best sailing yacht over 24 meters. Embracing the Wally signatures of high bulwarks, innovative clean deck design, and lightweight carbon hulls, making them both fast and easy to sail, Dream was seen by many as the epitome of evolution, with exceptional naval engineering by Javier Soto Acebal.

Wally Yachts, through 10,000 hours of research and development, created a movable ballast system specifically for Dream to improve performance while increasing safety. Eleven tons of water, pumped into tanks in three minutes and taking just 30 seconds to move from one side to the other, was a part of the design to give this 95-ton light displacement yacht improved stability. A six-meter keel fitted with trim tab was assigned to increase lift, while the draft could be minimized to four meters, allowing access into shallower waters.

DeepFlight, a San Francisco-area company that has been building personal submarines since 1996, has responded to these demands by building a submersible vessel that anyone can operate.
