The new Wally models will be built at the Ferretti Group shipyards, in particular the shipyard in Ancona will be the reference plant for Wally’s largest yachts.

And with the same energy and creativity that have lead Ferretti Group the top of the yachting world. As yachting enthusiast, I’m looking forward to discover the boats that will come from the exclusive collaboration with Luca Bassani: it is easy to foresee that they will push the frontiers of innovation and aesthetic avant-garde to new echelon.”
