Wally’s newest tender is the pared-back answer to the multipurpose needs of today’s yacht owners
Monaco, 16 July 2020 – 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-meter model, the newly created “center cockpit” design provides all the protection of a cockpit with the practicality and access of a walkaround. Those on board 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. 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.”Stefano de Vivo, Wally Managing Director
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 a 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”.Luca Bassani, chief designer and founder of the Monegasque brand
THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS: COCKPIT MEETS WALKAROUND
The jewel in the 43wallytender’s crown is its unique “center cockpit” layout, which provides the driver and passengers with supreme protection from the elements, especially at top speeds.
Alongside the protective benefits of the sheltered cockpit, thanks to the flanking walkways, passengers can enjoy convenient and safe access to the bow as well as the large sunpad on the foredeck.
THE SWISS ARMY KNIFE OF THE SEAS
Today’s yacht owners are more demanding than ever before, expecting vessels to perform a range of tasks and uses, adapting from season to season or even more frequently. The ability of the 43wallytender to change deck configurations as its owner’s needs vary will surely be one of its strongest appeals.
EVERY ELEMENT CONSIDERED
Twin Volvo Penta diesel 380hp stern drive engines with joystick control are an advantage for storage on a lift at a waterside home and give the added benefit of a shallower draft for exploration in remote areas. There is an option to upgrade to twin 440 hp engines for predicted top speeds of over 40 knots.
Naturally, a number of elements on the 43wallytender can be customized to the owner’s needs. For instance, the carbon T-top comes as standard to offer protection from the elements but it can be eliminated should the vessel need to be stowed in a tender garage without sufficient clearance.
The all-new 43wallytender will be unveiled at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2020, 8-13 September.
