Naval Architect Mark Mills of Mills Design was appointed for the first time for a Wally project and comments:

“Tango is our largest project to date and also we believe the most innovative, the most stylish, and certainly one of the most satisfying to develop in collaboration with the client, Wally, Pininfarina, and Persico Marine. We owe our involvement to the vision of Luca Bassani who suggested us to bring a fresh mindset to the Wallycento design question. 

We developed a radical proposal combining dramatic deck geometry with a novel interior layout for the most efficient result within the Wallycento box-rule, integrated with the structure to a level not yet seen in a yacht of this size. That proposal very quickly became Tango, after huge amounts of detail development, but very little deviation from the original vision for a sleek, light, and exciting sailing machine.”

Luca Bassani, Founder and President of Wally adds:

“A relevant  Tango’s technical attribute is to have the immersed volume of the hull more forward than the previous Wallycentos, and the aft lines are cleaner and more stretched: an hydrodynamic option that I much appreciate. Mark’s initial idea to have a displacement close to the minimum required by the box-rule, combined with the maximum sail plan allowed, would bring some advantages in the typical lights airs of the Mediterranean conditions.”

Wally is known for new ways, so Tango got the main salon at the aft area. Engine room and service area are placed amidships, guests can find their places forward. The interior was designed by Pininfarina.

Tangos’ cruising comforts equal those of the previous Wallycentos whilst her different interior layout further concentrates the weights over the boat center of gravity.”

Paolo Pininfarina says:

“The interior design of this Wallycento challenged our team to achieve the perfect balance of performance and comfort. Thanks to the selection of the materials and the innovative solutions of the interior decoration delivering both function and aesthetics,  we generated a true thoroughbred of the sea, ultra-light, and super performing, perfectly suitable for cruising as well as for racing. We are very proud of this accomplishment further confirming the excellence of our nautical division.”

“Tango turned out exactly how we envisaged her when we started developing the project: super sleek lines and aggressive overall appeal conveying her high-performance DNA.” proudly says Luca Bassani “Additionally, our form-reflects-function approach is epitomised in Tango’s sheer flush deck in the like of  the iconic Esense: besides enhancing the purity of the design,  it would facilitate the manoeuvres while racing.  We look forward to the sea-trials and test the predicted superior performance of our new superyacht.”
