Wally unveils 24m Wallywhy150
Monaco-based luxury-yacht brand Wally has revealed renderings of its new Wallywhy150 model. The 24m yacht was created by Wally-Ferretti Group Engineering, while Studio A. Vallicelli & C penned her interior design.
The Wallywhy150 is the latest addition to the Wallywhy range, after the release of the shipyard’s first full-wide-body yacht Wallywhy200, in September 2021.
“After the success of the Wallywhy200 we were asked to offer the same characteristics of this breakthrough model in a smaller size,” says Stefano de Vivo, Wally’s managing director says.
“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 Wallywhy150 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 Wallywhy150 looks set to be seen all around the world, from top Mediterranean ports to remote islands in the Caribbean.”
Wally says it has placed ‘great emphasis’ on the yacht’s exterior areas, with the choice of sundeck featuring a complete dining option and a bar/kitchen with grill, fridges and all the open-air living amenities at sea.
“The design is based on her bigger sister, the Wallywhy200,” says Luca Bassani, Wally’s founder and chief designer. “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.”
Wally says another important feature of the Wallywhy150 can be found on the main deck aft, where the full-beam interior saloon is on the same level as the cockpit down to sea level, creating a close sense of connection with the water.
Many of the design features of the Wallywhy200 have also been applied to the Wallywhy150. These include her full wrap-around glass on the main deck, with the high bow presenting a 270-degree view from the unique forward master cabin. Wally says the Wallywhy150 will be the first yacht in its size range to exhibit this feature.
Sporting a curved ceiling, the living area also has the highest headroom in its class, reaching heights up to 2.5 metres.
Onboard accommodation is for eight guests across four bedrooms, with four crew members also housed in two large cabins. With optional three IPS1350 engines, the Wallywhy150 can reach a maximum speed of 23 knots, or 21 knots with standard propulsion of three IPS1200 engines.
