Custom 30.8m Wally 101 sailing yacht on track for summer launch

3 March 2023

Wally has released a construction update on its 30.8-metre custom sailing yacht currently in build in Forlì, Italy.

The Wally 101 was sold in April 2021 to a European client and is the first sailing yacht project to be built by Wally since the brand was acquired by the Ferretti Group. The lightweight sloop is designed by Wally and Santa Maria Magnolfi as a high-speed racing yacht inspired by the Wallycento with naval architecture courtesy of Judel/ Vrolijk.

Latest images from the construction shed show that the deck has been laid and is in the process of being fitted out ahead of her launch in the summer of this year. The yacht was first glimpsed in February 2022 when her carbon fibre hull was released from its mould, laid in a cradle and moved back into the construction shed. 

The custom Wally 101 was the first sailing project sold by the builder following its acquisition by the Ferretti Group

The Wally 101 is built from a carbon fibre sandwich and weighs nearly 20 per cent less than other yachts in her class. A lifting keel increases the draft from 4.7 metres to 6.8 metres for increased upwind performance and is responsible for 40 per cent of the boat's total weight.

Built entirely from carbon fibre, the Wally 101 is designed with a "family-friendly layout" featuring an open deck plan, with a dining table big enough for eight guests located in the spacious cockpit. Accommodation is for a total of six guests across an owner's cabin and two further guest cabins. Two ensuite cabins for four crew are found in the service area, which includes a crew mess, laundry and galley.

At the Monaco Yacht Show in 2022, Wally revealed more details of its new lightweight carbon-fibre wallywind line, comprising three new models, comprising a 33.5-metre 110 model, a 39.6-metre 130 model and a 45-metre 150 model.
