Esense is a 43m high-performance sloop built in 2006 by Wally.

Esense has a radical design. Wally typical: No deck houses appears on her flush deck and only the bare necessities. That makes her to the biggest keel jolly boat of the world. In German, we would say: Die wohl größte Kieljolle der Welt.

Her exterior lines were designed by Wally in-house by the visionary founder Luca Bassani. The naval architecture work was done by Tripp Design.

Her Hall Spars rig carries a sail area of 836 m².

The interior was created by Odile Decq from France. She gave her very modern lines compatible with her exterior design. Esense can accommodate 8 guests and a crew of 6 on cruising tours. She has three guest cabins which can be opened to the saloon. Table and seats are available for people of 10 – 12.
