Italian shipyard Wally Yachts, a Ferretti Group brand, has announced its 24.1-metre wallywhy150 will make its international debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2023.
First premiering at the Venice Boat Show, the yacht is the smaller sister of the wallywhy200 and harnesses the same design team to deliver a high-volume platform from the drawing boards of the Wally-Ferretti Group Engineering team and Studio Vallicelli Design.
The 150GT superyacht has a number of features unique in her size bracket, including an owner's cabin located in the bow which offers 270 degree views from an unrivalled position. The use of glass continues in the main saloon, where there are generous windows on both sides of the space and a direct connection to the aft cockpit from the dining saloon, which is on a level slightly recessed below the forward saloon.
Additional accommodation is found on the lower deck, which can either be configured as one VIP, one double and one twin cabin or in a twin-VIP cabin layout.
Al fresco living is a key component of the wallywhy concept, and the yacht benefits from a sizeable aft deck with a hydraulic multipurpose ladder and a rising platform. Owners are able to configure this area as desired, with the capacity to bring a range of water toys on board, as well as a large 3.9-metre tender.
Meanwhile, the sundeck spans almost the entire length of the yacht, with a sunbathing area and a shaded lounge.
When powered by three IPS1350 engines (as chosen on hull one), the wallywhy150 can reach a maximum speed of 23 knots, or 21 knots with the standard propulsion of three IPS1200 engines.
She will be joined at the Cannes Yachting Festival by a number of other debuting yachts from Ferretti Group's portfolio of brands, including Riva's brand-new 82 Diva.
