Wally 145 (44m) with Hybrid Propulsion

Wally announced the order of the new Wally 145

The new Wally 145 is a creation by well-known industry people like Luca Bassani (founder and president of Wally) and Germán Frers for exterior design and naval architecture. Studio SculliDroulers Architecture, and the Wally in-house team are responsible for the interior.

Thanks to the use of the latest carbon fiber technology, the yacht has a light displacement of just 171 tons.

Hybrid Propulsion System

The Wally 145 features a hybrid propulsion system with lithium battery pack that allows full autonomy including air condition over the night. The yacht offers also a silent mode to run all yacht operations fully electric to reduce the use of diesel engines. With the use of Diesel, she will have a cruising speed of 15 knots.

Luca Bassani comments:

“The new Wally 145 is the perfect yacht to enjoy sailing round the world. She epitomizes our credo of uncompromised performance combined with timeless appeal and providing the owners with the pleasure of truly sailing in any wind condition, from the very light to the strong airs, in complete comfort.”

Germán Frers explains:

The new Wally 145 has been created for a distinguished, knowledgeable, person who really enjoys driving a sensitive, well balanced, pleasant and fast sailing yacht, while cruising with his family but also, and most important,  while racing around the cans. The initial brief was for a larger yacht and contrary to the norm, the new design decreased in size and got simpler during the design process, in search of agility, speed and a closer vicinity to the sea and the elements. Extensive research was conducted in order to get the best performance while striving to produce the lightest weight within its specifications, a pleasant and ample interior, three different and separate deck areas and a very sophisticated sail handling system”.


The master suite with two queen size beds, his and hers ensuites (one with bath tub), office and double walk-in wardrobes is located on the aft area and has the typical “Terrace on the sea” including an own cockpit. The cockpit at the helm station serves as a kind of bimini that provides more privacy and a shaded place.

The salon with sofas, dining and the navigation desk coalesces with the outside. The yacht features a guest accommodation for up to six. There are two twin bed and one Pullman cabin. The forward area houses the crew mess and four double crew cabins (with ensuites).

Under construction at Persico Marine, the launch is scheduled for May 2019.

“We are very proud of this collaboration that leverages the Wally know-know developed in over 20 years of experience in lightweight building technology and system engineering, and our renown leading edge quality in high-performance construction.” declares Marcello Persico, CEO of Persico Marine. “We are sure that this mega yacht will raise the bar of the yachting industry and is the start of a successful story.”
