Tango, the fourth sailing superyacht of the Wallycento series, was awarded the Honorable Mention to the ADI 2018 Compasso d’Oro Award.
Over 1,200 products have been nominated for the preselection of the prize in the two-year period 2016-2017, 283 products submitted to the international jury.
Of these, 16 received the Compasso d’Oro award and 56 others received an honorable mention from the international jury. Finally, 11 Compasso d’Oro career awards were awarded, as well as 3 prizes and 10 Targa Giova certificates of merit, the latter being awarded to projects carried out in Italian design university schools by young people at the beginning of their career.
The awards, assigned by the ADI (Industrial Design Association) to both designers and producers, represent since 1954, the year of establishment of the award, the highest recognition for Italian design.
In the Italian design term all the forms of industrial design invented and realized in Italy are included, including interior design, urban design, fashion design and architectural design.
The Award Ceremony was held in Milan on June 20th this year at the Cortile della Rocchetta, inside the Castello Sforzesco, where Tango together with other products that took part in the prize giving ceremony were the protagonists of an exhibition open to the public from 21 to 26 June.
The Compasso d’Oro Award is awarded after a laborious pre-selection activity carried out by the Permanent Design Observatory, which includes critics, historians, designers and journalists who are specialized members of the ADI or external to it, all engaged with continuity in the collection, year after year, information and in evaluating and selecting the best products which are then published in the ADI Design Index yearbooks.
Every 2 years, an international jury selects among the objects reported in the biennial yearbooks preceding those to which the Compasso d’Oro award is awarded.
The almost three hundred projects awarded in over sixty years of the award’s life, together with almost two thousand selected with the Honorable Mention, are collected and kept in the Historical Collection of the Compasso d’Oro ADI Award, whose management has been entrusted to the ADI Foundation, established specifically by ADI in 2001, in collaboration with the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities and with the Regional Superintendency. The design of Tango will thus enrich this collection alongside the other products awarded during the 64 years of the Compasso d’Oro Award.
About this, Luca Bassani, founder and President of Wally, says:
Tango is exactly the boat we wanted to achieve when we started to develop the project: extremely clean lines and an aggressive look, reflecting the high performance of its DNA “, then continues, ” The Honorable Mention validates the design path that generated this superyacht and at the same time ratifies the identifying styles of our brand, thanks to which Wally has become a reference for nautical design and not only “.
Marcello Persico, CEO of the Persico Marine shipyard adds:
“We are very satisfied with this cruise superyacht: Tango weighs only 47.5 tons thanks to the optimization of the entire boat from the beginning of the project. Specifically, we worked hard to lighten every element of the boat. Not only working on the main composite structures but also on the interiors, also using carbon fiber and coated Nomex sandwich panels for these, and developing ultralight solutions to realize, for example, hinges and veneers “.
Paolo Pininfarina, President of the Pininfarina Group ends:
“The awarding of such a prestigious award is a source of immense pride and certifies the quality of the work of a real team of excellence in the nautical sector” “The aim was to once again be innovators, going to combine aesthetics and function, enhancing both aspects. Every detail is the result of an obsessive search, the result is a true Fuoriserie del mare, elegant and ultra performing, which will define a new benchmark in this sector “.
It is the fourth time that Wally is included in the list of winners of ADI Compasso d’Oro, won in 2004 with Tiketitoo and in 2008 with Ryokan 2, while Black Sails in 2011 and Tango this year received the honorable mention . A truly exceptional result.
If a shipowner wants to make the yacht of his dreams where the needs are met and exceeded the first thing to do and identify the right design team.

The whole yachting world is eagerly awaiting to know how the waves will cut the modern version of a 81-meter (266-foot) three-masted schooner currently under construction at Vollenhove, the Dutch shipyard of Royal Huisman.The project is called RH400 and has as its final objective to build the largest aluminum sailboat in the world.The exterior design of the yacht is signed by Dykstra Naval Architects and Mark Whiteley Design, while the interiors are designed by Mark Whiteley Design.
This particular sailing yacht is also the largest ever built by Royal Huisman in aluminum that has had to adapt the work areas of the yard to meet the needs of this impressive project.The schooner will be built in compliance with the LY3 standards, a series of construction, maintenance and quality standards that the project must consider in the construction of the yacht.
Once built si will also rank among the top 10 largest sailing yachts in the world.shipownershe is Asian, andaccording to the construction site, “build my dream” was his first invocation.
Delivery to the shipowner is scheduled for 2020. The project was presented for the first time at the Monaco Yacht Show 2016 and was designed according to the precise instructions of the owner or to create a unique fast and comfortable boat for long cruises around the world.A yacht that can be used both for recreational use of the family and for business meetings.
From the latest widespread communication it would seem that at present the shipyard has completed the planning and planning phase of the construction and a large partof the yacht engineering.In addition, work has also started on the aluminum frame of the main deck.
The hull will be able to accommodate 12 guests and 13 crew members on board and there is no information yet about the layout and layout of the cabins.What is known is that on the upper deck (flybridge) there is a platform with a large and panoramic sunbathing area equipped with comfortable sofas together with a complete command station covered to allow guests to enjoy the sun watching, for who is interested, all navigation maneuvers.
The cockpit on the main deck is sheltered by a superstructure with side glass panels.Below this superstructure to the bow in the later part develops the main salon reserved to the owner and his guests consisting of a bar area from a seating area with sofas and a living area with a dining table for 16 people.
This area has been designed in complete harmony with the other outdoor spaces and is easily accessible through a unique system of sliding doors.The bulkheads will be light wood and oak floors to create an elegant and comfortable contemporary environment to create a perfect atmosphere for socializing, entertaining and doing business.
Under deck aft is a huge garage to park all the means of entertainment on board such as water scooters, a large tender, equipment for diving and various tools for water sports.But the most pleasant one will almost certainly be a hydraulic platform to get on the central tree to enjoy a breathtaking view of all the places you will visit.
Dykstra Naval Architects, in charge of the externals together with Mark Whiteley Design, has issued the following declaration on the project that is being carried out:
“It might look like a modern modern sailboat now, but in 50 years it will be a classic”,
While Mark Whiteley, also responsible for the interiors, said he “has a classic and timeless profile with a clean and modern interior”.“It’s a yacht that will never go out of fashion”.
Finally, Thys Nikkels, of the architectural firm Dykstra Naval Architects who collaborated in the design of naval architecture added:
“The vertical arch, the long waterline, the thin hull and the large sail surface will give the yacht the speed and good performance required”.
We remember that the schooner that had a great popularity at the end of the nineteenth century was the most famous sailing boat among the owners and represented a large part of the medium and small tonnage navigation at the time of the sailing marina, moreover it is a schooner dated or still today is one of the most beautiful boats that sail our seas.
Therefore we just have to wait for the water tests of this schooner of our times.
