A famous French shipbuilder ship company and one of Monaco joined hands together to build this yacht with enormous dimensions: the WHY 58x38.

A piece of land with a beautiful villa partly fulfills this aspiration because it is static. A yacht offers the freedom to move, but does not have the space of a property. WHY has it all: space, stability, movement, independence, peace.
WHY goes even further. This revolutionary concept of the moving island is developed with the latest and most advanced sustainable technologies, recycling thermal energy, as well as any organic and inorganic waste. The architecture of the whole project fits perfectly in the environment — there are no excesses, nothing is superfluous, the impact on the sea is minimum.
A new and unique way to live on the sea while caring about it, protecting it, and loving it.
WHY is a joint-venture created in June 2008 between Paris-based luxury goods designer Hermès and similarly-positioned yacht constructor Wally Yachts, to develop a new type of motor yacht redefining the art of living on the sea. The venture was conceived as an equal partnership whereby each company becomes fully involved in all aspects of the concept and design of each project.
"We are currently in the phase of carrying out the project, which is technically complex and which requires on-the-spot decisions," said Hermes CEO Patrick Thomas.
"It seemed a good idea to us to have only one decision-maker and we naturally decided to hand the reins over to Wally."
