18-19/10/2021, Saint-Tropez (FRA,83), Wally Yachts, WHY200


The first full-wide-body superyacht able to combine elegance and performance.

This innovative motor yacht WHY200, combining the comfort and space of a larger displacement yacht with the speed and performance of a semi-displacement one – was developed by Wally design team led by Luca Bassani, jointly with the Ferretti Group Engineering Department, in partnership with Laurent Giles NA Ltd for the naval architecture and Studio A. Vallicelli & C for the interior design.

In order to comply with the design philosophy, the aim is to combine form and function through distinctive and highly recognizable aesthetic elements, and to guarantee a new and immersive yachting experience with the water element. WHY200 features a spectacular 4.7-metre-high glazed bow, housing a stunning 37 sqm master suite overlooking the sea, with an uninterrupted 270-degree view of the horizon.

This cabin stands out also for its exceptional soundproofing, thanks to the positioning of the engine room, which is located at the opposite end of the boat.


The eye-catching upper deck boasts a futuristic glass and carbon dome, a Wally’s distinctive feature that calls to mind the clean and angular look of the legendary Wallypower.

The extended structural top with no supporting pillars on the upper deck is a masterpiece of design and engineering, thanks to its exceptional stability and strength. The first unit, displaying an exclusive “Wally Silver” colour, features a fourcabin layout: the master cabin with two separate bathrooms on the main deck, a VIP cabin and two guest cabins on the lower deck.

The brand-new spectacular staircasehas a load-bearing function, as well as being an extremely light element connecting the three decks. The walkways of the two living halls and the lower deck corridor are in teak.

The relaxing and natural colour palette of neutral tones creates a refined and timeless effect. This yacht boasts a highly performing hull, as all Wally hulls.


The first unit is powered by four Volvo Penta D-13 IPS 1350 engines1000 hp each. Thanks to these features, WHY200 can cruise at any speed (23 knots top speed), without reducing the guests’ comfort on board, an element of uniqueness among fast semi-displacement yachts.

Its width combined with the fin stabilizers – a standard feature that can be activated when at anchor or while cruising –, and with two Seakeepers ensures greater stability compared to conventional hulls.
