• 80ft pure racing yacht for the Wally//Class, the world's leading Maxi series
• Extraordinary performance in one design
• Easily transformed from racer to day cruiser in a matter of hours
• Superstructure can be adapted further to become a racer/cruiser
• Otto's versatility extends the vessels lifespan and strengthens residuals
Once again, Wally has redefined a yachting concept with the launch of a new boat. Wally//Otto has been designed to offer owners a highly competitive racing boat for the Maxi Yacht Class. Built to one design, Otto offers a no-compromise solution that can be campaigned with a realistic budget and a minimal crew.
Crucially, the innovative design means that Otto can be transformed into a comfortable day cruiser within hours. Longer term, the hull and superstructure can be adapted to become a racer/cruiser. This new approach to racing yacht design extends Otto's life to one beyond competitive sailing, adding to the high residual values already enjoyed by Wally yachts.
Speaking at the launch of Wally//Otto during round four of the FT Wally Grand Prix Series in Porto Cervo, Wally founder and President, Luca Bassani Antivari said, "Otto is the purest racing yacht produced by Wally. It will allow owners to compete at the highest level alongside the Americas Cup and Olympic standard sailors already competing in the Wally//Class. This cleverly designed boat dispenses with the ownership challenges associated with a traditional racing yacht, as its inherent flexibility means owners will enjoy stronger residual values as well as owning a yacht with a longer-term prospect as a highly rewarding racer/cruiser."
