Wally has successfully launched the 50-meter sailing yacht Better Place, the world’s largest carbon fiber sloop developed on the lines of Tripp Design with the interiors by Wetzels Brown Partners, and classified RINA Green Star.
The exterior and interiors are developed following the Wally concept of inside-outside living areas, whereas the interiors open onto the exteriors. The saloon, dining room and wheelhouse forms one continuous, 86 sqm open space under the deckhouse, while one aft master cabin with four double guest cabins accommodating up to 12 guests are located on the lower deck.
Better Place is the first sailing yacht ever developed to meet the environmental requirements of the RINA Green Star Design additional class. Equipped with the latest diesel electric propulsion technology to increase power efficiency and reduce consumption, noise and vibration, it has a top speed of 14 knots.
