When you imagine a superyacht of any kind, you probably already imagine a pretty strong degree of luxury. Italian design team Wally will more than likely still challenge your standards with their stunning new superyacht design, the wallywhy200. This futuristic-looking watercraft challenges everything you thought you might know about yachts.
Sleek and irresistible design
From whatever angle you look at the wallywhy200, what you get is a stunning view of the future of pleasure cruising. The exterior design features a powerful and imposing front end, out of which emanates a grand, sweeping, and sleek body design that looks like a knife cutting through the water like butter.
The design team was led by Luca Bassani along with the Ferretti Group. They partnered with Laurent Giles NA for naval architecture, and studio A. Vallicelli & C for the interiors. One might look at it thinking that it’s all form and no function, but they’d be completely wrong, of course.
Its ultra-contemporary and stylish exterior might not look natural – some might say it’s “supernatural” – but the wallywhy200 is in fact a superyacht that’s designed to blend beautifully with its watery surroundings. We’ve mentioned its cutting-edge shape that helps it glide seamlessly through water at speed, but it’s the extendable exterior portions that really seal the deal.
The beach club area can be expanded with folding wings, providing access to the water on 3 sides, and expanding the lower living area to a total of 32 square meters, a number that grows to 61 square meters when you include all the other living space. Sit on or dive off one of the folding side wings to enjoy the water, or take the steps down to the rear platform that can be lowered right into the water.
The upper decks of the wallywhy200 are made with an open plan, including a stunning dome of glass and carbon that stands as if by magic with no supporting pillars. Owners and their guests can also enjoy a comprehensive 5G wireless network throughout the craft.
Luxurious as it may be, the wallywhy200 is also a performance craft. It’s powered by 4 Volvo Penta D-13 IPS 1350 engines, each of which delivers a rather impressive 1,000-hp. Put that together and you get a maximum cruising speed of 23 knots.
On a superyacht, you’d expect fantastic attention to detail, and the wallywhy200 does not disappoint. The design of the craft itself as a single wide-body structure – rather than having a walkway as many similar craft do – instantly creates more space to accommodate the stunning interiors. Designers have incorporated fairly neutral tones as the standard, which lends to the open-air feel. Furniture on the craft is made from open-pore teak, and fills a living room complete with 55-inch TV, a full kitchen, four cabins, multiple bathrooms and even a 5.1 premium sound system throughout.
The master cabin is a whopping 37 square meters – larger than most standard luxury 5-star hotel rooms – and boasts an elevated position 4.7 meters above the water with an unmissable 270-degree view of the surrounding lake or ocean.
