Wally Reveals Espen Øino-Designed 165 Wallypower

Wally Reveals Espen Øino-Designed 165 Wallypower

Superyacht designer Espen Øino has teamed up with Wally founder Luca Bassani to develop a 50 metre motor yacht.

Revealed at the Monaco Yacht Show, the 165 Wallypower takes inspiration from the radical look of the 118 Wallypower, resulting in a Mediterranean cruiser with a piercing bow, uncluttered lines and open decks.

It is the first motor superyacht concept to be unveiled by the brand since its acquisition by the Ferretti Group earlier this year and follows the unveiling of a 30.8 metre sailing sloop at the Cannes Yachting Festival earlier this month.

Designed for owners intending to cruise the Mediterranean, the 165 Wallypower incorporates “Wally DNA” with a “sharp, angular look”, according to the yard.

The 499GT interior includes accommodation for a total of 10 guests including an owner’s stateroom on the main deck and four further guest suites on the lower deck. The crew and service areas are located forward towards the bow.

The main deck also features a large saloon, dining area with double fold down balconies and a swimming pool flanked by sunpads.

Port and starboard staircases lead down to the beach club aft, which is extended thanks to fold-down bulwarks. The 15 metre sundeck includes a large raised sofa, central U shaped bar and high glass bulwarks.

Power will come from diesel engines and waterjet propulsion, making the 165 Wallypower capable of reaching a top speed of 30 knots.

Speaking about the concept at the Monaco Yacht Show, Øino said he was a long-term admirer of Bassani and the Wally brand.

“Luca and I share the same vision and approach, rooted in a profound passion for the sea and sailing. With the 165 Wallypower, two like-minded, driven brands have now finally come together to create a new icon,” he said.

Bassani added; “I am very happy and proud to have worked with Espen on this exciting new project. He completely understood what was needed to bring the Wally ‘wow factor’ to the fast open boat market. There is no mistaking it: this is a pure Wally design for a new purpose.”
