Stefano de Vivo Reveals 2020 Plans for Wally Yachts
by Miranda Blazeby
Wally Yachts will present a new motor yacht model this year, managing director Stefano de Vivo has revealed.
The Ferretti Group chief operating officer opened up about plans for the brand in the year ahead, revealing “several new projects” are in development for the brand.
The new motor yacht model, which is in the “pipeline”, will be revealed later this year, de Vivo told BOAT International.
De Vivo said the model had received “great feedback” and will be further developed by Øino in the coming months.
Wally also revealed plans for a 30.8 metre sailing sloop called the Wally 101 last year. Together the two new models have been “very well received”, specifically by “existing and potential new Wally owners in Europe and America,” de Vivo said.
He added: “Furthermore we have started gaining attention in the Asia Pacific region where enthusiasts are starting to reach out to us.”
It comes as Wally prepares to launch the outboard 48 Wallytender X at the Miami Yacht Show this week. The day cruiser was first revealed at the 2019 Boot Dusseldorf boat show.
