Wally has been manufacturing innovative sail boats and power yachts ever since the brand started activity, back in 1994. The name, originating from Monaco, has quickly become one of the most significant in the industry of sea cruising. The Better Place is an extremely relevant example which proves all the aforementioned.

The most recent addition to Wally’s fleet, the lovely Better Place yacht, boasts with in-house design and manufacture, in cooperation with Wetzels Brown Partners and Tripp Design. The largest carbon fiber sloop in the world, the 50 meter long Better Place was awarded a famous RINA Green Star classification.

The magnificent yacht sports a look which is similar to the original Wally ships. The Bugatti blue hull alongside a sleek, contemporary look makes the yacht excel trough confidence and sailing efficiency. In addition, the Better Place really helps making this world a better place, being an environmentally friendly vessel without compromising performance.

Given this yacht’s capabilities, greenness, sleek shape and performance, you’re probably thinking its constructors needed to make compromises in terms of amenities and interior spaces. You’re entirely wrong – it boasts with lavish, 300 square meters interiors, penned down by Wetzels Brown Partners, 400 square meters of exterior living spaces designed by Tripp Design and a plethora of top notch amenities.

The deckhouse houses navigation instruments, saloon areas and dining spots, with immense windows which allow huge quantities of natural light to get inside and shine on the superb interior surfaces. Covering a total of 86 square meters, the lounge, wheelhouse and dining room make up a really nice place to be.

And going further, a large, superbly appointed main saloon shares superb panoramas and provides an entire array of lounge seating for up to 20 guests. Boasting with daybeds around a central table and L-shaped lounge sofas, it opens up towards the aft deck. A large cockpit is tied to the main saloon, shaping up a unique inside-outside living area.

The main lounge is located within the half sheltered aft cockpit, tied to a large, 30 square meters terrace-on-the-sea, which is also accessible via the aft master suite. The terrace can either serve as a swimming platform or a lounge spot, and can as well be used as a tender boarding area.

Found within the starboard hull, an additional tender boarding and swimming platform can be seen. Furthermore, the central coffee table in the aft cockpit can be converted to support alfresco dining, which is quite a must on such a nice vessel.

A 60 square meter, naturally lit master suite is found below the aft deck, with a modern central entrance, minimal lighting schemes and a variety of storage places and cabinets. The master stateroom has been designed in a minimalistic manner, with mirrored glass aft on top plus starboard and port bull’s eyes.

This area boasts with a large port side lounge and TV area alongside a queen sized starboard bed. In addition, the master stateroom sports an adjacent desk area, a few low cabinets, lavish drawers, curved sofa positioned aft and plenty of refinement. The ensuite provides has been garnished with jaw dropping contrasts, a similar level of luxury and a slightly futuristic appearance.

And there is the sun deck, covering 100 square meters, accessible from both the exterior and interior staircases.
