The future is all about classy superyachts if Wally’s latest concept is to be believed. Nothing short of a spectacle, the marquee’s latest edition is a uber fine vessel that is designed to offer up to 50% more living space compared to others of her size.
Called the Wally Hybrid Yacht 200 (WHY200), the concept is brought in place by Monegaque, headed by chief designer Luca Bassani alongside Ferretti Group’s Engineering department, with naval architecture from Laurent Giles NA and interior design provided by A. Vallicelli & C Studio.
It features a 22-square-meter upper deck interior, a 100 square-meter main deck interior, concealed garages for stowing a 4-meter tender and multiple water toys, and an unprecedented 37-square-meter owner’s suite at the bow.
The spunky vessel will further accommodate a structural central carbon fiber staircase, which will link the lower deck’s accommodation to the upper deck’s stunning glass-encased sky lounge, an optional informal show kitchen, an extended pillarless overhang for protection, and flanking glass panels.
Commenting on it, Stefano de Vivo, Wally’s Managing Director, said, “More than ever before, we are finding less time to gather with our loved ones, so when we can get together, it needs to be special for everyone no matter what their age or interests. Through the WHY200, we are challenging preconceived notions of what a yacht should be and how it can be used. It is a platform that can be enjoyed by the whole family or groups of friends, without compromise.”
Complete with an adaptive Volvo multi-propulsion system that can hit an impressive 20 knots in hyper displacement mode, the WHY200 is Wally’s first hybrid yacht. It will debut at the Ferretti Group Private Preview in Monaco this September. Well, the future of yachts sure looks bright!
