Wally designs innovative new sailing yacht

ADVERTISEMENT

Wally has designed its first new sailing yacht since becoming part of the Ferretti Group.

The 101-foot (30.6m) high-performance sloop also introduces the brand’s trademarked Wally Magic keel, which allows a varied draft of more than 2m for optimal racing performance and access to secluded anchorages, has a dumping feature for extra safety in case of grounding, and increases flexibility in interior design, according to the company.

A new hull shape, powerful sail plan and carbon composite construction add to the yacht’s elevated performance. 

“Following the original spirit of Wally, the 101 is a yacht offering tremendous comfort inside and outside combined with swift performance while being simple and easy to sail,” stated Luca Bassani, Wally’s founder.

Deck and interior layouts are based on a flexible platform that can be adapted to the needs of different owners. An aft garage provides room for a 4m tender.

The Wally 101 has an upwind speed of 12 knots in 12 knots of breeze with a 75-degree tack, and at least 20 knots downwind, according to the company. Naval architecture is by Judel/Vrolijk, and exterior styling has been developed in collaboration with Pininfarina.
