Ferretti Group has announced the latest addition to its growing offering of fast, fun and stylish luxury tenders from Wally, the 43wallytender.
On this exciting 13-m model, the newly created “center cockpit” design provides all the protection of a cockpit with the practicality and access of a walkaround. Those onboard can enjoy the feeling of being in the open air with the added security and comfort usually experienced on a more enclosed yacht.
“Thanks to Wally’s iconic design heritage and innovation developed over more than 25 years, the team has introduced a fresh new take on the middle part of the boat and its use, creating the new ‘center cockpit’ concept. At the same time, we have once again succeeded in evolving our offering to satisfy the yacht owners of today and tomorrow by elevating the day-boat yachting standards,” said Stefano de Vivo, Wally Managing Director.
“Upholding Wally’s customary cool aesthetics and extraordinary performance, this latest addition to the Wally family is sure to be a benchmark of the future.”
A new original
Drawing on the highlights of earlier Wallytender models, the 43wallytender displays an abundance of design features that make it the ultimate multipurpose performer. The result is a very fast, robust and practical runabout that is designed to be pure, simple and magnificently seaworthy, suiting uses as diverse as family day boat, superyacht tender, resort shuttle and sailing yacht support vessel. The 43wallytender has the capacity to carry up to 12 people (Category B) at speeds in excess of 40 knots.
“Our team has worked tirelessly to create a new tender that perfectly meets the multifunctional needs of today’s owners while also staying true to our Wally design philosophy. You will not find a single item onboard that does not serve a purpose in its purest, simplest and most beautiful form. I am very proud of what we have achieved with the 43wallytender, which surely deserves its place cruising alongside our wider family of Wally yachts and tenders,” added Luca Bassani, Chief Designer and Founder of the Monegasque brand.
When creating the new model, Wally’s design team extensively consulted owners of its existing tender fleet to understand how the vessels’ various features have benefited day-to-day use. The new boat consequently fills a niche that will strike a chord with yacht owners the world over, delivering a sheltered passenger and driver experience, excellent handling, high-speed performance, generous bathroom facilities with standing headroom and separate shower compartment, a cabin with bed, and a range of deck configurations.
Staying true to Wally’s distinctive style and spirit, the 43wallytender simultaneously drives the company’s offering in a new direction while taking inspiration from the design heritage of its best loved models of the past two decades. In particular, the similarities to early generations of Wally tenders including the Wallytender, WallyOne and 47wallypower are most evident.
The 43wallytender also draws on Wally’s sailing heritage through the laminated sail mounted across the T-top’s carbon fiber superstructure. This brand’s signature solves the problem of simultaneously delivering the sensation of open-air living and providing shelter from the sun. Made from laminated sail cloth, the chic, contemporary “Wally” look of the T-top is highly practical, being lighter to reduce displacement of the vessel, and semi-transparent to allow plenty of light shining
on those in the shade underneath.
Developed by Wally and Ferretti Group’s technical engineering department, the 43wallytender is constructed in advanced composite with carbon fiber at Wally’s brand-new facilities in Forlì, Italy.
As with all the brand’s tenders, the 43wallytender will be available in a range of head-turning colours that cannot be found elsewhere. The first unit, which is currently in production and due for completion in August 2020, has a striking iridescent green hull. The colour has been dubbed “Gator Green”, in honor of the company’s first sailing yacht, Wallygator, which was also green; as the landmark yacht that initiated Wally’s illustrious history, 2021 will mark the 30th anniversary of her launch.
The all-new 43wallytender will be unveiled at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2020 from September 8 to 13.
