Video: Wally Hermès Yachts – Luxurious ‘Floating Island’ Yacht

March 12, 2010 by yachtlover

Wally Hermès Yachts unveiled the designs for its WHY craft at the Abu Dhabi Yacht Show 2010.
With the cost around $160 million the ‘floating island’ is a team project involving the French fashion house Hermès and the Monaco based ship builder Wally.
More peaceful and more environmentally friendly lifestyle are the characteristics of this futuristic design.

“We hope to open a new path, to offer a new lifestyle that is different, serene, contemplative and respectful of the environment, moving slowly on the water, combining the pleasure of sailing and absolute comfort,” Hermès Artistic Director Pierre-Alexis Dumas said.

Although it’s spaciousness, the 58×38 metre yacht will welcome only 12 guests on board, with a crew of 20.
The top floor is entirely designed for the owner’s pleasurable use, with a suite of 200 square metres in size and a 25 metre wide private terrace.
The guest suits are situated below the owner’s suite, along with a 25 metre long swimming pool and 36 metre deck beach.

Wally Hermes Yachts designed this breathtaking yacht with an environment it mind. At the maximum cruising speed of 14 knots, in comparison to a yacht of the same size, WHY will save up to 200 tones of diesel per year, it’s designers stated.

The yacht also comes equipped with waste management systems made to handle both organic and inorganic waste.
The owners claim it could make four Atlantic crossings without any major maintenance.
It will be the first yacht created by Hermès.
