Wally Just Launched Its First 110-Foot Sailing Yacht

Wally Yachts is entering a new sailing era.

The Italian yard just delivered its first semi-custom sailing superyacht since joining the Ferretti Group in 2019. The new Wallywind110 hit the water on Saturday, June 1, becoming the first vessel in Wally’s new performance cruiser range to leave the yard. The Wallywind line will also include a 130-foot and 150-foot model, suggesting the yard is ready to make another big splash in the sailing sector.

“We have always been a leader in this segment, and we aim to continue anticipating market trends by creating yachts capable of becoming true benchmarks in both yachting and design,” Wally managing director Stefano de Vivo said in a statement.

Founded by Italian entrepreneur Luca Bassani in 1994, Wally initially specialized in sailing boats but has since expanded into building high-tech motor yachts. The new wallywind110, which was fittingly launched on the yard’s 30th anniversary, honors that sailing legacy yet is thoroughly modern in design.

Measuring 100 feet from sheer bow to open stern, the newcomer features a sleek carbon hull, a low-profile coachroof, twin rudders, and a telescopic keel. Showcasing naval architecture German firm Judel/Vrolijk & Co, the first hull is finished in a bright metallic paint that changes color depending on the light.

Wally’s in-house design team worked with Italian firm Santa Maria Magnolfi to create an exterior and interior with a spacious feel. The team decided to relocate all the technical equipment to the stern in order to create a large, 860-square-foot cockpit comparable to that of a sailing superyacht of 197 feet or more. The interior layout includes multiple entertaining areas, an open-plan salon, a full-beam owner’s cabin, three guest cabins, an office, and accommodation for five crew.

The 110 offers not only the comfort of a cruiser but the speed of a racing yacht, too. Powered by 355 hp Cummins engines, the sloop makes quick work of ocean crossings, according to Wally. (No top speed or range has yet been shared.) “The wallywind110 is not just a superyacht that promises impressive performance,” adds Wally founder and chief designer Luca Bassani. “Wally has always been synonymous with both performance and design.”

The second wallywind110 is already under construction, with delivery expected soon.
