This new 164-foot (50-meter) sailing yacht, with a stunning Bugatti-blue hull is the world’s largest carbon-fiber sloop. Wally built the yacht based on naval architecture by Tripp Design. Wetzels Brown Partners created the modern interior. Color-changing LED lights throughout can be adjusted to change atmosphere and mood. The aft owner’s area has direct access to the terrace on the sea. The foredeck has a Jacuzzi, and the sun deck has more dining options and sunbathing space. Better Place, which has a diesel-electric propulsion system, is the first sailing yacht developed to meet the environmental requirements of RINA Green Star Design.
