Wally had unveiled the futuristic-looking 27m (88’ 9”) WHY200, the latest motor yacht to come from the visionary team headed by chief designer Luca Bassani, alongside Ferretti Group’s Engineering department, with naval architecture from Laurent Giles NA and interior design by A. Vallicelli & C Studio.The new compact yacht weighs in at 200 GT and under 24m (78’8”) load line length, but conveys the comfort and space of a much larger displacement yacht alongside the speed advantages of a semi-displacement yacht.By absorbing prized space conventionally used for exterior walkways into a full-beam salon, the WHY200’s 61-m2 open-plan contemporary living area is significantly increased. Being 50% larger than most salons in it’s category, the expansive space benefits from a structural central carbon fiber staircase, linking the accommodation on the lower deck to the upper deck’s stunning glass-encased sky lounge. Additionally, an informal show kitchen can be fitted as an optional layout.The WHY200 also provides more than 200 m2 of indoor living space, including a 22 m2 upper deck interior and a 100 m2 main deck interior. The lower deck has a typical footprint for the yacht’s length, given over to three or four double guest cabins (depending on the choice of layout), while the crew and service quarters have the largest capacity for its class, with a galley and three cabins for up to five crew members spread over 32 m2. A spacious owner’s suite located in the bow and offers uninterrupted 200-degree views through vast windows. “Providing owners with an elevated experience on board has always been central to our mission at Wally. We have had a longstanding vision to create a wrap-around main deck in glass that would provide so many lifestyle benefits to the owner, and now finally the technology has made this possible, unlocking game-changing extra interior volume on this deck. It has allowed us to create a sensational and unprecedented 37m2 (398 sq.ft.) owner’s suite at the bow, which takes the on-board experience to a whole new level. Imagine the feeling of waking up to uninterrupted 200-degree views through vast windows in the bow, as if you are floating above the water. It is a genuine marvel to behold; we are especially proud of what has been achieved with this revolutionary layout,” commented Luca Bassani, Founder and Chief Designer of Wally. This hybrid yacht can cruise at 20 knots in hyper displacement mode. The WHY200 will debut at the Ferretti Group Private Preview in Monaco at the beginning of September 2021.Wally is part of Ferretti Group. It was founded in 1994 in Monaco by Luca Bassani and is the only yachting brand to be a two-time winner of the ADI Compasso d’Oro, the world’s most important award for quality and design.

Cantiere delle Marche announced that explorer RJ 130 has been successfully launched.The exterior and interior of RJ range were designed by Francesco Paszkowski and naval architecture by Hydro Tec. The 40m explorer can accommodate 12 guests and seven crew members.“The RJ range of yachts is definitely a game changer for CdM. With three sales and five interior designs commissioned to Francesco Paszkowski, cooperation with multi-award-winning designers has already proven to be the right choice!” says Vasco Buonpensiere, co-founder and sales & marketing director at CdM.RJ features twin heavy duty MTU 10V2000M72 engines delivering 900kW each at 2250rpm, allowing a top speed of 14.5 knots. At an economic speed of 9 knots, she will have a range of around 5500nm with about 10% fuel left upon arrival.RJ 130 was sold to a European owner. “It was a great pleasure to work with an owner who was keen to bring his experience to CdM,” says Vasco. “Choosing CdM, he offered a serious statement of trust in our yard’s reliability and construction quality. I’d like to add that it’s inspiring and a reason for pride to see that a growing number of experienced and motivated owners prefer CdM to build their yachts,” Buonpensiere maintains. “Our clients have fantastic ideas for cruising, diving, luxury toys and serious boating. They are planning adventures, getting involved in underwater exploration, marine life observation, etc. As a shipbuilder, it’s exciting to be a part of making their ideas a reality, with this range merging the world of white yachts with that of real explorer vessels even more.”CdM’s story begins in 2010. Since 2015, the shipyard is the world’s leading builder of explorer yachts. Cantiere delle Marche builds long-range, luxury yachts and superyachts from 26m to 40m in length.Credits: Cantiere delle Marche

The ceremony for the Baglietto’s Hull Number 10238 keel laying, the first of 52m of the new generation of TLine yachts signed by Francesco Paszkowski Design, took place just before the Christmas holidays.The 52m Hull No. 10238 is a yacht that draws inspiration from Baglietto’s tradition – preserving its most classical stylistic features – but reinterprets it in a modern, contemporary key. The stern has been completely restyled and is now open, with a beach club on three different levels. The large pool can be “hidden” by an original up/down moving flooring system. Inside, the salon’s floor-to-ceiling glazing ensures a constant contact with the sea even when living indoors. The sky lounge on the upper deck can be opened on three sides. A retractable ladder directly connects the sun deck and the upper deck at the bow, making the latter a natural extension of the former. The yacht will be equipped with a standard hybrid propulsion system that will allow one to choose a more efficient navigation mode, reducing both costs and environmental impact. When cruising in electrical diesel mode, the T52 will have a range of up to 7,600 nautical miles and will be able to remain at anchor for up to ten hours just using batteries. However, her two MTU 16V2000M86 engines will also allow her to reach quite an impressive maximum speed of 17 knots and a range of 3,600 nautical miles in traditional navigation mode.Baglietto Spa is Italian boat builder based in La Spezia and specializes in the construction of new aluminum light alloy yachts ranging between 35m and 50m in length and steel and light aluminum alloy displacement mega-yachts starting 40m.Credits: Baglietto

Azimut 53 will make its official debut early in 2021. This new yacht from Azimut will compete in the mid-range Flybridge market segment. The yacht’s flowing lines hide surprisingly spacious interiors, making it perfect for a family who wants to enjoy long cruises in absolute comfort.The exterior design, by Alberto Mancini, is characterised by a sophisticated aesthetic. The elegant interiors are designed in a contemporary style by the Azimut Style Office.The generously proportioned day area is laid out on almost the same level, with the galley near the entrance and the living area separated by a difference in height of just 25 cm. The surprising sense of airiness and freedom of movement that this creates is enhanced by side windows that run uninterrupted, with no uprights, from right beyond the entrance area to the windscreen. As a result, natural light and the view over the water are the undisputed protagonists of the yacht, adding to the pleasure of spending time on board.The storage spaces, the depth of the armchairs and sofas, and the galley appliances have all been studied down to the smallest detail to ensure functionality, comfort, convenience and durability.The master stateroom amidships offers a full-height space. There are a lot of storage spaces in the suite, including a walk-in wardrobe.The lobby has been carefully designed to create space for a washer-dryer machine plus storage space without reducing the surface area of the third twin-bed cabin, while the partially verticalized bow makes the VIP cabin particularly roomy, with much more storage space and distance between the bed and the bulkhead than the market average.The exterior area is very convenient, with a long and comfortable L-shaped sofa in the cockpit. The setting can also be fitted with a bar unit with ice maker and bottle chillers.The foredeck and flybridge sunpad cushions have a shape, thickness and size that are an anthem to laziness and very hard to resist. The naval architecture, developed by the Azimut-Benetti R&D team, combined with the choice of a propulsion system featuring two Volvo Penta IPS 950s, ensures not only more volume on board, but also comfort, efficiency and manoeuvrability. The two engines deliver a top speed of 31 knots and a cruising speed of 27 knots.Azimut Yachts is an Azimut Benetti Group brand. With its Atlantis, Magellano Flybridge, S, Verve and Grande collections, it offers the widest range of 34 to 125-foot yachts.Credits: Azimut Yachts
