The power yacht at the end of The Island ?

Hello guys,
I am new to the forum, and desperatly trying to find the designer name of the yacht that you see at the end of the movie The Island.

For those who didn't see it, but might have an idea, here is a (vague) description: must be aprroximately 120/150 feet, dark green body, looks very very futurist, dark (black smoked glass) cabin, and some kind of side parts at the back of the boat that can expand when berthing.

Thank you so much !
Laurent

The Wally is an extraordinary vessel.
Though the 118 is not without its flaws - for instance, it is apparently impossible to see the horizon, let alone the water from the helm whilst the boat is at speed!
More importantly - was it a good film?

3 RR turbine engines !!! one can only immagine what the fuel consumtion will be plus you will probably need a day to learn how to start them. Real macho stuff but of all the boats that have ever been called a millionares boat,-- then this must be it.

Its ugliness is beyong description , but its ugliness becomes confusing to the mind to the point that you have to re calibrate ugly, untill its ugliness doesnt matter. Its as ugly as a tank, some people like tanks.

A very strange boat-- you iether like it or you dont.

Well, Jack, it's always the same questions.
When facing a Honda Civic, everybody will agree on a common well designed car that rolls.
When facing a Lamborghini Murciélago, some will love it, some will hate it, but none will stay "feelingless".
So ... is it what we call art ? And is the WallyPower 118 a work of art ?
However, I totally understand that someone would hate it ...

I certainly agree with Will, for me, it is a beautiful vessel ....
And I actually hapened to see it in real this summer in Bonifacio, Corsica, crusing in a turquoise bay....
And ..... wow.


As for the movie, I loved the photography of the film .... very esthetic. I also liked the story, but this is debatable )

World's most outstanding yachts

There was a television tour of this yacht on a program whose topic was world's most outstanding yachts. It does have that love/hate reaction on people; certainly expands the universe of yacht types. The fuel bill must be it's most impressive statistic.

If you go on the website, there is a promotional movie you can watch.
Besides showing how esthetic this boat is (for the ones on the love side ), they also show in detail the how functional it is intended to be.

AND to answer your question, they give the consumption .... and as I know nothing about the powerboat world .... I didn't really understand
But I am sure you'll find it interesting !

The fuel capacity is 5,812 gallons. Fuel consumption at top cruising speed is one liter per second, or about 15 gallons per minute!

no thanks not with the gas prices in CA.

Stealth "sex appeal" Boat

This VanDutch boat may interest those that liked the boat featured in the Island. It has a stealth sex appeal with the same avant garde genre.

I never could understand : sex appeal ...for a boat !
But if you compare the forms of the Wally and the forms of Adastra
In my point of view I found the second one more 'avant garde genre'
and I don't ask about the the comparaison of the consumption betwen each of them !!

'Sexy boat' usually means sleek nonsense of 100+ feet in length. It is like a 'sexy' woman - impractical, with terrible character and needs a lot of money to own/maintain

lol. well, this sexy one is not at 100+ feet.

She must have wings (she was Redbull sponsored). She flies at an excess of 45 knots. She is for a type of personality, definitely not for everyone.

The practicality depends on what you're looking for: if you're asking fuel consumption, depends on the model (i.e. engine choice).

Character: what you see, no hidden agenda (unlike a sexy woman).

Maintenance: the designer's choices had practicality in mind based on all the articles I've read about it.

If you want her to strattle then take an Adastra because VanDutch's flexibility is measured in other regards.
