Following a period of strategic partnership, the iconic Wally brand is now fully owned by Ferretti Group. The acquisition has already resulted in sales with three confirmed orders for the all-new 48 Wallytender before the first unit touched the water. The two units were sold in Europe and USA, reflecting Wally’s global appeal.
“These sales confirm the vision of Ferretti Group in acquiring one of the world’s most renowned and innovative yacht brands,” says Stefano de Vivo, CCO of Ferretti Group and Managing Director of Wally. “In terms of research and development, engineering and production, Ferretti Group is in a position to develop Wally’s unique potential even further.”
The original Wallytender concept opened a new market as a standalone runabout, ideal for day or overnight cruising and not just as a tender for a larger yacht or private villa.
“Ever since we entered the power market in 2001, the Wallytender has been a symbol of the pure joy of open-air boating,” says Luca Bassani, Wally founder. “The new 48 Wallytender is proof positive that our very special design DNA continues to thrive under Ferretti ownership.”
