is out and about conducting her sea trials so the launch was recent. The flush-deck yacht has fairly spacious interiors and boasts accommodation for up to six in three cabins - a master suite that is located forward- and two double cabins with ensuite facilities. Two cabins are also available towards the bow for the crew. Luca Bassini, Wally founder and company President, said: “The wallycento formula is indisputably successful because these superyachts proved to be highly competitive, very technical, extremely fast in all conditions, and exceptionally cruiser friendly. With all these characteristics, the wallycento superyachts currently reflect the highest technological expression of the world of large sailing yachts continuing the tradition of the true Maxis, which is racing in an homogeneous and competitive fleet.”
