Wally Yachts has revealed a new 27-metre (88-foot) motor yacht design named WHY200.
Set to debut at the Ferretti Group Private Preview in Monaco this September, the WHY200 has been designed by Wally founder Luca Bassani in collaboration with the Ferretti Group’s in-house engineering department.
Naval architecture has been penned by Laurent Giles NA while A. Vallicelli & C Studio is behind the interior design.
Maximising space is at the forefront of the design, which boasts up to 50% more living space than other yachts this size, Ferretti said.
More than 200 square metres of living space is found throughout the design, including a 22-square-metre upper deck interior and 100-square-metre main deck interior.
The space, traditionally reserved for exterior walkways, has been incorporated into maximising the full beam, 61-square-metre main saloon. The saloon also features a carbon fibre staircase, connecting it to the lower and upper decks.
Accommodation inside the 200GT interior comprises three or four guest cabins on the lower deck and a 37-square-metre owner’s suite at the bow with far-reaching ocean views thanks to wraparound glass.
Speaking about the owner’s suite, Bassani said, “Imagine the feeling of waking up to uninterrupted 200-degree views through vast windows in the bow, as if you are floating above the water. It is a genuine marvel to behold, we are especially proud of what has been achieved with this revolutionary layout.”
The galley and crew accommodation also sits on the lower deck and includes three crew cabins for a staff of five.
Elsewhere, the yacht includes an enclosed bridge, which includes both the wheelhouse and skylounge, and extending beach club thanks to fold-out wings.
Two concealed garages can hold a four-metre tender (13-foot) and multiple water toys. Elsewhere, the WHY200 features al-fresco dining and lounging areas on the main deck with unobstructed views on three sides.
Speaking about the new model, Wally managing director, Stefano de Vivo, said, “Through the WHY200, we are challenging preconceived notions of what a yacht should be and how it can be used. It is a platform that can be enjoyed by the whole family or groups of friends without compromise.”
