Naval architecture was completed by Judel/vrolijk & co., while the exterior and interior yacht design was finished by Wally’s sailing design team led by Luca Bassani and Studio Santa Maria Magnolfi.
“The new full custom yacht features the Wally Enhanced Hydraulic System comprising multiple hydraulic pumps technology to further speed up sail handling. The lifting keel increases the draft from 4.70m (15.4ft) to an extraordinary 6.80m (22.3ft), for unparalleled upwind performance.”
Combining a high-performance platform with family-friendly exterior and interior layout, the yacht’s deck plan features an amidships cockpit with a table for eight and an aft sunbathing area to take in the sunshine and views. A spacious owner’s cabin features an ensuite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. Two further ensuite cabins complete the guest accommodation for six, while there is a large crew mess, laundry and galley with accommodation for four crew. The saloon includes a living and dining area with roomy seating for up to 12. While not under sail, the 425hp engine will provide a top speed of 11.5 knots.
The Latest Full-Carbon Superyacht
“Following BARON D, NAHITA and the Wally 144 Full Custom of the last few years, this is the 48th full-carbon sailing superyacht built by Wally, continuing the company’s remarkable contribution to the advancement of sailing design and technology,” says Stefano de Vivo, Wally Managing Director. “Launching a fully custom 101-footer is a great milestone for us, which demonstrates once again the ability of Wally and Ferretti Group to always place themselves at the forefront, even in the competitive market of sailing superyachts.”
Luca Bassani, Wally Founder and Chief Designer shared the design details, “I’m extremely proud of the results achieved with the wally101 Full Custom. The light ship displacement is just 55 tons, almost 15% less than yachts of similar size and configuration, and with 40% of the total weight placed in the keel. This achievement is accomplished thanks to the latest carbon fiber technology pioneered and developed over the years by Wally, using a high-tech sandwich composite with pre-preg carbon fiber.”
