A project

A unique combination of performance and comfort characterizes the new WallyCento.
The superyacht is the result of the collaboration among excellences in the sector: the yacht designer Mark Mills, the Italian boatbuilder Persico Marine and the renowned design house, Pininfarina, who signed the interiors.




Elegant, ultralight and high-performing

WallyCento #4’s interiors will be designed by Pininfarina, which has been working hand-in-hand with Persico to achieve the performance goals. The team’s interior design and construction methods aim to create the lightest possible craft with the optimal quality and resistance needed for a high-performance superyacht of the latest generation.The Pininfarina team authored all the interiors. The saloon – the most iconic space - is characterized by the stairs, having both a functional and an aesthetic function. The steps in fact, like waves, continue on the walls giving life to functional spaces resulting in a dynamic environment as the sea surface. The materials used, the black carbon fiber and the light wood create a contrast able to enhance the combination of sportiness and elegance. Fast and sporty lines, light and performing structures characterize all the spaces of the superyacht.

Work in progress

Starting from the design of Mark Mills, Persico Marine is currently constructing the fourth superyacht in the WallyCento box-rule class with the goal of delivering the 100-foot racer-cruiser in summer 2017. Persico began the building process by manufacturing the CNC female mould in its Nembro plant. Next the mould was transported to Persico’s Savona facility housing a new 45 m x 12 m oven, as well as other state-of-the-art equipment.

Now Persico has started laminating the yacht’s hull and deck. As Persico has been involved in several recent America’s Cup and Volvo Ocean Racing projects, Persico is now well established in the world of top-quality large-scale composite manufacturing. From precise tooling alignment to accurate fibre placement and quality control, Persico’s advanced processes guarantee the exactness of Mills’ hull shape, weight control and careful final composite part assembly.

A collaboration among two Italian excellences

“Pininfarina and the sea have a long relationship that has generated, over the years, jewels able to combine elegance and performance. Our philosophy is to conceive tailor-made projects, designing every single detail with the aim of fulfilling the need and the dreams of the customer. The WallyCento #4 is a new extraordinary chapter of this long-lasting story”.

Paolo Pininfarina, Chairman of the Pininfarina Group

"Thanks to our high quality production processes. I am confident that we will be able to optimize the yacht’s weight while complying with the box-rule limitations and the Wally spirit".
