WHY or Wally Hermès Yacht
or WHY I want to marry a gazillionare…haha!
in an interview with Pierre-Alexis Dumas:
And now you want to build yachts?
That’s a very large-scale design.
What is the price tag on that?
Between €80 to €110 million ($109 million to $150 million). The industry standard is €1 million ($1.4 million) per meter. A super-yacht is about 100 meters long. Our boat, which we make with the Wally [yacht-building] company, is 56 meters. And this is why it’s very original: Our boat is extremely wide.
We have this odd shape because we decided to [build a boat that would travel] slow….Speed is so passé. What is the luxury for tomorrow? One of them is time.
