The Italian shipyard Wally has just unveiled the latest iteration of the WHY range, the Wally WHY150, a 24-metre version of the first wide body yacht, the WHY200, which was exhibited at the Monaco Yacht Show last year.
Created by the Wally-Ferretti Group Engineering, in collaboration with Studio A. Vallicelli & Cwho penned her interior design. Great emphasis has been given to all exterior areas, where the use of the outdoor space allows her to offer in the sundeck a complete dining option and a bar/kitchen with grill, fridges and all the open-air living amenities at sea.
The yacht features a similar set up to her predecessor with a full-beam saloon, on the same level as the cockpit which is right down at sea level, creating a close sense of connection with the water. Additional features include full wrap-around glass on the main deck, with the high bow presenting a 270-degree view from the unique forward master cabin.
The yacht accommodates as many as eight guests across four generous staterooms, with four crew members also housed in two large cabins. With her optional three IPS1350 engines, she can reach a maximum speed of 23 knots, or 21 knots with standard propulsion of three IPS1200 engines.
Set to make her world debut in spring 2023, the first unit of the series will be launched in February.
Stefano de Vivo, Wally’s Managing Director commented, “After the success of the Wally WHY200 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. The Wally WHY150 serves as yet another example of Wally being ahead of its time, setting new standards in yacht design. As an industry paradigm-shifting project, the Wally WHY150 looks set to be seen all around the world, from top Mediterranean ports to remote islands in the Caribbean.”
Luca Bassani, Wally’s Founder and Chief Designer explains the inspiration behind the model, “The design is based on her bigger sister, the Wally WHY200. The challenge was to incorporate some of the 200’s best features into a smaller package, while opening the door to new and innovative solutions in this size range. Most importantly, we have maximised and optimised her exterior spaces as much as possible – they are absolutely enormous and totally unique for her size in the industry.”
