Company history

Founded by wealthy Italian businessman Luca Bassani in 1994, Wally started out primarily as a sail boat design firm and have more recently branched out into designing cutting edge motor yachts[2], one of the most noteworthy to date of these power boats is the 118 WallyPower[3]. Wally's sailboats and motor yachts range from the recently introduced Nano 11-metre day sailer/racer through the 24-metre range, and often exceed 30 to 60 metres in length[4].

Wally is considered [5] to be one of the premier yacht builders, noted for its unique blend of stylish, sleek, minimalist design, power and comfort. Celebrities owning a Wally include Gianni Agnelli, Juan Carlos I of Spain, Marco Tronchetti Provera, and Lindsay Owen-Jones.

In March 2008, Wally unveiled its new luxury megayacht WallyIsland. At 325 feet long, it is one of the largest yachts in the world.[6]

In 2009 Wally & Hermes joined to create WHY-YACHTS (Wally-Hermès Yachts) which is dedicated to a new lifestyle of living on the sea.[7]

In film

The 118 WallyPower is the sleek yacht featured in the film The Island, starring Scarlett Johansson and Ewan McGregor. It appears in McGregor's character's mind as a distant memory.
