In Italy, the construction of a high-speed 30.8-meter sailing yacht made of carbon fiber continues.

This is the first project for the shipyard since its takeover by the Ferretti Group. Wally 101 is being built to order - the project was sold to one of the shipyard's European customers in the spring of 2021.

The carbon fiber fast racing yacht was designed by the Wally and Santa Maria Magnolfi teams, with the naval architecture by Judel/Vrolijk. Last week, construction reached a major milestone as the yacht's hull takes on its true shape.

“At this point, the concept of a yacht first takes on a tangible form and you get an idea of the vessel that it will become. It's a breathtaking sight. In this case, her purposeful nose and powerful lines promise breathtaking performance and mesmerizing looks,” commented Wally Managing Director Stefano de Vivo.

After completing the molding process, the bow of the yacht was moved to a new space for the next stage of transformation. Bulkheads will soon be installed on Wally 101 to separate the interior space.

The yacht will weigh less than other vessels in this class by approximately 20% and the lifting keel will increase the draft from 4.7m to 6.8m. The yacht is designed with a “family friendly layout” with an open deck where the spacious cockpit has a dining table for eight guests. The owner's cabin and guest cabins can accommodate six passengers, while the crew cabins provide four more places.

“We are thrilled to be one step closer to welcoming the stunning new custom-designed Wally. Our specialists have been working with Wally since the early days of the brand and are among the best in the world,” commented Wally founder Luca Bassani.
