Wally, a brand of the Ferretti Group, has added a new model to its portfolio of powered yachts named the wallywhy150. The 24 metre motor yacht builds on the success of its bigger sister, the wallywhy200, which made waves at the Cannes Yachting Festival and Monaco Yacht Show in 2021.
The wallywhy150 was masterminded by Luca Bassani and the Wally-Ferretti Group Engineering department, with Studio A. Vallicelli & C creating the interior concept.
Stefano de Vivo, managing director of Wally, said: “After the success of the wallywhy200 we were asked to offer the same characteristics of this breakthrough model in a smaller size. We decided to develop this model to be 24 metres in length and 150 GT and added in some tailored and unique features to give her own identity."Read More/On board the spaceship-style wallywhy200 superyacht from Wally
“The challenge was to incorporate some of the 200’s best features into a smaller package," said Luca Bassani, founder and chief designer of Wally, "while opening the door to new and innovative solutions in this size range."
One such feature is the award-winning forward master cabin, which enjoys wraparound windows and a 270-degree view. Another is a full-beam saloon that is on the same level as the cockpit and extends down to the sea to create a closer connection with the water. The space is also smartly designed with a curved ceiling offering the highest headroom in her class with a maximum height of 2.5 metres.
Accommodation is for eight guests across four generous staterooms, with four crew members also housed in two large cabins.
The wallywhy150 offers two propulsion packages: her optional three IPS1350 engines can reach a maximum speed of 23 knots, or 21 knots with the standard propulsion of three IPS1200 engines.
Construction on the first wallywhy150 is already underway and is scheduled to launch in February 2023 with a global debut in spring. "As an industry paradigm-shifting project, the wallywhy150 looks set to be seen around the world, from top Mediterranean ports to remote islands in the Caribbean,” de Vivo added.
