Wally sail: flying on the crest of a wave

Wally's sailing heritage is legendary, and under Ferretti Group, the brand is redoubling its efforts on the sail side.

Besides three thrilling new performance cruisers in the 100ft-plus category, construction is well under way on the fully custom Wally101, inspired by the Wallycento box-rule design.

The outer carbon skin of the Wally101 hull has been completed and cured. Completion of the hull is scheduled for the end of October. At the same time, bulkheads, the keel trunk and other structures are under construction, and the engineering of the auxiliary systems is in progress. The rig engineering is due to be shipped at the end of 2022, with the new yacht on schedule for delivery in May 2023.

It is just one of several projects of the Wally world. With a proud track record in carbon fibre technology, Wally is leveraging all its know-how to create a new line of technically superior performance cruisers. Extensive use of pre-preg carbon construction ensures that these boats will be powerful cruisers that can hold more than their own on the racecourse.

The first off the drawing board is the Wally110. Displaying all the hallmarks of Wally's timeless style, the Wally110 is safe and comfortable, yet boasts a high performing pedigree. The raised saloon configuration and Terrace-on-the-sea concept maximise elegant living space, while the seductive lines signed judel/vrolijk & co., will deliver fast, comfortable passages and a turn of speed around the buoys.

The larger Wally130 and Wally150 are being developed to complete the visionary brand's range of new supersailers. Custom features and a range of keel and equipment choices will be available. But all the boats will share one thing: Wally's mastery of the most advanced technologies in construction, engineering and systems put to the service of a new generation of supremely capable boats.

"We at Wally are delighted to be able to present details of our new sailing range. Beautiful, innovative design is in our DNA, and all four boats presented at the Cannes Yachting Festival prove it once again. Under Ferretti Group, Wally is redoubling its efforts and focusing also on the sailing side, and the exquisite results of this will soon be cruising the world's oceans and winning races," says Stefano de Vivo, Wally Managing Director.

"Wally's new sailing projects aim to reach new levels of cruising convenience, thanks to redesigned cockpit areas and interior. The 110 has great volumes thanks to a raised saloon, while the flush deck hides the cockpits that are recessed below the sheerline. These are three times bigger than traditional ones and also safer, due to their depth. The larger 130 and 150 boast extra features, such as the comfort of a sleek deckhouse, a private owner's cockpit aft and ample tender storage," says Luca Bassani, Wally Founder and Chief Designer.
