Superyacht Design Symposium: 6 things we learned from Luca Bassani's 2017 keynote speech

Superyacht Design Symposium: 6 things we learned from Luca Bassani's 2017 keynote speech

1 of 6 1/6

The Wally philosophy

As the 2018 Superyacht Design Symposium draws near, we look back at one of last year's highlights, when Luca Bassani, founder and president of Wally, discussed his career so far — here's what we learned...

It has been well documented that Bassani founded his own company as he couldn't find the boat of his dreams. He expanded on this saying, "What I was looking for was simplicity and maximum sophistication. In my mind at the time, boats were too complicated, not comfortable at all, just designed and conceived to go through the oceans and the worst storms that usually you don’t want to find if you are sailing."
