WHY stands for the partnership between Hermès Yachts and Wally. This new joint venture has conceptualized a motor yacht that redefines the art of living on the sea in green style. In an attempt to move beyond the horizon of the current trend, WHY has shaped up a boat that is contained in a triangular hull measuring 58m x 38m. Powered by a diesel-electric engine, it is also fitted with 900 square meters of photovoltaic panels. These solar panels provide juice to most of the boat’s auxiliary system needs. Cruising on the most efficient motorization requires less power at cruising speed than a boat of equal size. Turning our attention to the luxury aspect, this designer yacht will boast of a 25 meter-long swimming pool and a 36-meter aft deck beach. The interiors also scream of luxury with water-resistant buffalo leather décor.
Since Hermès was involved in every step of the process from concept to realization, the boat WHY promises to render luxury sailing with cutting edge technologies.
