Espen Øino and Luca Bassani join forces to create a daring new yacht concept that is fast, cool and contemporary.
The 165 Wallypower, Wally’s first power superyacht concept by Espen Øino and Luca Bassani, features clean lines and open decks; large interior volume; seamless indoor-outdoor lifestyle; and smooth sailing experience. Stefano de Vivo, Wally Managing Director, expressed, “With the 165 Wallypower project, we believe that the essence of Wally as interpreted by Espen has completely transformed how we will see the Mediterranean cruiser yacht, which up until this point has been a market lacking in innovation. The new project is a cutting-edge product in its category.”
Luca Bassani, Wally Founder, added: “Wally products must always be innovative and deliver the unexpected. I am very happy and proud to have worked with Espen on this exciting new project. He completely understood what was needed to bring the Wally ‘wow factor’ to the fast open boat market. There is no mistaking it: this is a pure Wally design for a new purpose.” The 50-metre superyacht with a tonnage of 499 GT has all the convenience of a medium-size cruising yacht, the spaciousness expected on a larger vessel, as well as speed and smoothness.
