The WHY Super-Yacht

When Hermés yacht brand executive Pierre-Alexis Dumas met Wally builder Luca Bassani Antivari they hatched a dream- to combine the terrestrial luxury of your own island with the aquatic bliss of yachting.  The fruit of their efforts is WHY (Wally Hermés Yachts), a 36,000 square foot, energy-saving, sustainable yacht unlike any seen before.
Antivari: This revolutionary concept of the moving island  is developed with latest and most advanced technologies, recycling thermal energy, as well as any organic and inorganic waste.  The architecture of the project fits perfectly in the environment- there are no excesses, nothing is superfluous, the impact on the sea is minimal.

Dumas: We hope to open a new path, to offer a new lifestyle that is different, serene, contemplative and respectful of the environment, moving slowly on the water, combining the pleasure of sailing and absolute comfort.

"Thankfully, it's just a concept, and hopefully none will be buildt"

Guess you didn't look at their other video then because it is being built!

I think it's gorgeous...I want one, if I had enough money and owned my own house I would sell up and buy one!
