The new cruiser-racer Y3K is a Wally 101 Full Custom.

Judel/vrolijk & co. collaborated with Wally’s sailing design team, led by Luca Bassani and Studio Santa Maria Magnolfi, to provide the naval architecture, exterior, and interior design for the new full custom yacht. The vessel boasts the Wally Enhanced Hydraulic System, which utilizes multiple hydraulic pump technology to expedite sail handling. Additionally, the lifting keel allows for an impressive increase in the draft from 4.70m to 6.80m, resulting in unparalleled upwind performance. The wally101 Full Custom can achieve high performance in all speeds and configurations and reach a top speed of 11.5 knots with its 425hp engine when not under sail.

This cruiser racer integrates a high-performance platform with a family-friendly exterior and interior design. The yacht’s deck plan showcases an amidships cockpit equipped with a table that can comfortably accommodate up to eight individuals and an aft sunbathing area that provides the utmost relaxation. The owner’s cabin boasts an ensuite bathroom and a spacious walk-in wardrobe. Two additional ensuite cabins complete the guest accommodation, allowing for six guests. The saloon encompasses a living and dining area, providing ample seating for 10-12 individuals. The service area consists of a crew mess, laundry facilities, a galley, and two ensuite cabins that can accommodate a crew of four.

“Following Baron D, Nahita and the Wally 144 Full Custom of the last few years, this is the 48th full-carbon sailing superyacht built by Wally, continuing the company’s remarkable contribution to the advancement of sailing design and technology.,” says Stefano de Vivo, Wally Managing Director. “Launching a fully custom 101-footer is a great milestone for us, which demonstrates once again the ability of Wally and Ferretti Group to always place themselves at the forefront, even in the competitive market of sailing superyachts”.

“I’m extremely proud of the results achieved with the wally101 Full Custom. The light ship displacement is just 55 tons, almost 15% less than yachts of similar size and configuration, and with 40% of the total weight placed in the keel”, adds Luca Bassani, Wally Founder and Chief Designer. ”This achievement is accomplished thanks to the latest carbon fiber technology pioneered and developed over the years by Wally, using a high-tech sandwich composite with pre-preg carbon fiber”.
