Eye Candy of the Week – Wally Hermès Yachts

Wally Hermès Yachts - WHY is the result of the joint-venture signed in June 2008 between Hermès and Wally, to develop a new type of motor yacht redefining the art of living on the sea. The iconic Parisian house and the iconic Monaco yacht brand formed an equal partnership whereby each company is fully involved in all aspects of the conception and design of each project. - Press Release.

I am always amazed in how Hermès takes something so classically beautiful and creates an equally, if not more stunning, modern version.
