For the new WallyCento: Mark Mills, Persico Marine and interior design by Pininfarina

WallyCento-Pininfarina-2A 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.

Starting from the design of Mark Mills, Persico Marine is currently building 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 the new Persico 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, deck and structure.

WallyCento #4’s interiors will be designed by the renowned design house 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. “Thanks to our high quality production processes”, said Marcello Persico, managing director of Persico Marine,“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“.

“Pininfarina and the sea have a long relationship that has generated, over the years, jewels able to combine elegance and performance”

Affirmed Paolo Pininfarina, chairman of Pininfarina. “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”.
