The world’s largest sloop in carbon fiber, uniquely classified RINA Green Star, the 50-m Better Place introduces innovative concepts in the round-the-world mega cruisers such as the big volumes associated with ultra light displacement -only 250 tons- providing very high performance also in light airs; the latest diesel electric propulsion to increase power efficiency and reduce consumption noise and vibration; the new simplified staysail system specifically developed by Wally R&D; the deckhouse with full height windows; the immense open-air living areas exceeding 400 sqm; the raised bulwark; the 62-sqm aft owner’s suite with portholes and hatches on four sides and direct access to the Terrace-on-the-sea. The overall design is astonishing compared to any other similar yacht with the exterior and interiors developed following the Wally concept of inside-outside living areas. The exceptional performance associated with the proven Wally easy-sail system, produces a true Fast and Easy mega yacht. .
