WHY – Wally Hermes Yacht



No man’s an island – no more. This ‘moving island’, built by Wally’s President and CEO Luca Bassani Antivari as well as Hermes artistic director Pierre-Alexis Dumas allows man to travel with unsurpassed comfort and spaciousness. It has been described by the former as having the ‘freedom of the yacht with the space of a property’. Perhaps another one of the many compelling reasons to own this yacht is that it is environmentally friendly. The Wally Hermes Yacht (WHY) is equipped with state-of-art sustainable technology and it uses recyclable thermal energy, making travelling on the WHY guilt-free.

The WHY which is 58m x 38m wide is delineated with continuous fluid lines that perpetrates a strong sense of fluidity and flow. The interior decoration primarily uses sustainable wood in nude, neutral shades that contrasts with the heavily tainted roof of the vessel. It has a master space, a guest space, a common space and a 50m pool located at the top deck. The master bedroom has a retractable roof that opens to unravel a breath-taking sight of the expansive sea. Unlike most cruise ships, this WHY is meant to travel; it is capable of going up to 14 knots. Well, I suppose it’s not just a mere island.

This beauty leaves us in sheer wonderment and saying WHY not.
