Moving Island by Wally-Hermes Yachts

WHY Wally-Hermès Yachts is the new company created by french luxury brand Hermès and Monaco based yacht maker Wally, dedicated to a new lifestyle of living on the sea.

The boat is contained in a triangular hull measuring 58m x 38m. There is no superstructure. The initial idea of this hull was confirmed by the ramform hull which they discovered, redesigned and adapted to fit the concept of the wheel house that emerges from the silhouette of the ship. the interior of the yacht is fitted out with water resistant buffalo leather using the calpinage technique. The yacht which took years in the making has been tested in Gotebourg, Sweden, in a specialised tank testing facility, to see how it would perform in big seas. The outcome is that, in full swell, the bow moves a tiny bit and the stern stays completely still. Anchored, the boat creates a totally flat surface behind it, like an olympic-size pool where you can swim in total peace. On the bow, there's a seawater pool 25 metres long that follows the curve of the bow. The environmental and ecological advantages are a strong point of the boat WHY. Different sources of energy are managed by a central computer. The yacht is powered using a diesel electric engine. A surface of the photovolatic panels which measure approximately 900 square meters provide the solar electricity generated which covers part of what is needed to subsist the boat.

Cost around £90million to build.
