On board the wallywhy 150 with Luca Bassani at the Cannes Yachting Festival – Video by DN
Luca Bassani, founder of the Wally brand, accompanied us on board the fantastic wallywhy 150 during the French event
The wallywhy 150 was one of the stars of the Cannes Yachting Festival 2023. This splendid 24-metre yacht already debuted at the Venice Boat Show, but it certainly could not miss this international event. This was the fifth premiere that the Ferretti Group brought to the French show.
The latest model of the wallywhy range stands out above all for its large exterior space, the full length windows and the “amphitheatre” design of the owner’s cabin. There is a lot more to add and for this reason, while we were visiting the yacht, we were accompanied by Luca Bassani, founder of the Wally brand.
CONNECTION BETWEEN EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR
One of the most innovative elements of this model is the fact that the main deck is on a single level connecting the cockpit to the full beam interior saloon with an open place. The aft deck transforms into a terrace on the water, with a multi-use ladder and hydraulic platform. Owners can use this area as they wish, with space to store all types of water toys, in addition to a large 3.90 metre tender.
The main saloon has a dining table and, a few steps up, a large living room with a fantastic view of the water, thanks to the large windows throughout the yacht. This gives the feeling of being on a much larger vessel.
THE INTERIORS OF THE WALLYWHY 150
The interior layout of the Wallywhy 150 has an owner’s cabin to the bow, which, like an extraordinary “amphitheatre over the water”, offers a 270 degree view. In addition, as this is the furthest part of the ship from the engine room, silence is guaranteed.
The layout of the lower deck can be configured with a VIP cabin, double guest cabin, and a twin, or it can have two VIP cabins and a twin, each with its own bathroom. All of the rooms are flooded with natural light thanks to the large windows which, in addition to creating a bright and airy mood, give the rooms a modern and refined look.
