WHY: Wally-Hermes Yacht 58


Wally and Hermes have been working hard together to create a series of luxury and environmental-friendly yachts. Back in June 2008, Wally and Hermes signed a join-venture to develop a new type of motor yacht redefining the art of living on the sea. The Wally-Hermes Yacht 58 is the first yacht in the series and was designed with the motive ‘form-equals-function’. The WHY 58 offers comfort, privacy, stability, space, and sustainability in a sleek design.
