Ferretti Group has announced the latest addition to its offering of fast, fun and stylish luxury tenders from Wally, the 43wallytender, a runabout 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.
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. It will be unveiled at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2020, 8-13 September.
