After all, what more needs to be invented among boats? Everything. At least, that’s what it looks like when a new Wally model arrives. The latest is called Wallywhy100 and, with unmistakable style, it ushers in a new strand among day boats.


If we look at the last 30 years of Wally (watch the interview with Luca Bassani, the man who reinvented the modern powerboat, here) we can safely say that the brand is among the best at thinking “out of the box.” The point, however, when daring, is to be able to meet the market’s taste as well. Because you can be bold even to the extreme in design, but the numbers want their share, too. Wally’s WHY dynasty is proving this: after the
and the
, comes a 21-meter “day boat.” And it does so how? Declining design in the service of function.

This new yacht from Wally relies heavily on a very distinctive indoor/outdoor area on the deck. Instead of bulkheads and closures, everything is open, open to the maximum so that interior and exterior are contiguous.

In fact, there is a single open space, covered by a superstructure termed“stealth-style,” with shapes typical of the range. Aft also has surprisingly much space and increased in turn by two fold-down decks that extend the surface area of the aft area by almost 50 percent. Suffice it to say that the beach area covers 14 square meters and has a platform for dinghy and water toys that reach 3.6 meters in length.


How fast is it?

This 21-meter Wally yacht has a top speed of 27 knots with two Volvo Penta IPS1350s or 25 knots with two IPS1200s. The interior dashboard is located under the superstructure in the “corner” part that also houses the hybrid lounge and dining area.

Wallywhy100 and the booths

Given the size, of course, a function from boats for sailing beyond the day is not excluded. The master stateroom is aft, full-beam and has a private bathroom with an electrically controlled glass window that can fully enclose the area or let light into the cabin. Hull windows give an important view out, while a wardrobe and storage options make this a practical space.

There are then two guest cabins on board. The VIP is on the port side and the other with twin beds is on the starboard side instead. They both enjoy private bathrooms and, as with the owner’s, ample hull space.

The crew area has dedicated access from both the main and lower decks without having to cross the guest areas, a remarkable feature for this size.
