Another feather in the Wally cap
Founded in 1994 by Italian businessman Luca Bassani, Monaco-based Wally Yachts produces eye-catching, impeccably designed sailing and motor yachts. he revered brand’s newest undertaking is the 93-foot /27.7m Wally 93, a cruiser-racer that is being developed for an avid racing yachtsman.
Overseen by Judel Vrolijk naval architecture firm with interior design accents by Sans Tabu, the yacht showcases a distinctive profile and plenty of outdoor space. Guests can sit or lounge on the sizable teak deck as they enjoy a breezy day at sea and take in the gorgeous ocean views. A midnight-black hull and gigantic sails give the yacht a swanky, sophisticated look that sets it apart from other vessels in its class.
The posh interiors offer additional opportunities to relax. A secluded saloon promises privacy for everyone on board. A companionway leads to both the crew and guest cabins as well as the galley area. And in addition to an owner’s suite, the yacht features two guest cabins sure to provide rest and relaxation after a long day at sea.
The Wally 93 features a displacement of only 35.5 tons, and is a light and powerful specimen. Performance is optimised for light to medium conditions, and the yacht can be wind-driven with 16 knots of wind, thanks to an upwind sail area of more than 5,400sqft and a downwind sail area of almost 11,400 square feet. If there is no wind to be found, a 255 hp Steyr diesel engine will provide cruising power.
Capable of accommodating six guests and two crew members, the Wally 93 is scheduled to launch next summer. The sporty yacht will then debut at the 2018 Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup, guaranteeing a sailing experience that is equal parts speedy and swanky.
