Monaco – The wallytender48 is the first new project born from the partnership between Wally and Ferretti Group, and carries all the distinctive Wally hallmarks, confirming that the brand DNA – signature design, proven performance, fun and flexibility – continues under the new strategic alliance.
The restyled version of the original Wallytender iconic design takes the unique onboard experience a step further with new amenities and features, while keeping the same stylish solutions that define the Wally approach to combining form with function, which are applied to every detail of the lightweight composite construction.
The the fold-down bulwark sections increase the size of the swim platform, which is served by a retractable passarelle that doubles as a 5-step swim ladder. The new larger interior volume offers more comfort and increased functionality, providing a true cabin for an afternoon nap, and a real shower cubicle to freshen up comfortably. On deck, family and friends can relax in convivial comfort by sinking into the generous seating and sunbeds, and enjoy al fresco dining thanks to the galley unit equipped with two cooking rings, a sink and two fridges.
The aft seating can be configured to face forward when under way and to face the dining table when at anchor. The entire aft sunbed can be raised to access the engine compartment, or just the top section that has storage space underneath. More storage is under the forward sunbed and in a locker for water toys in the unit behind the helm seating. A special Besenzoni anchoring system with an extending arm to simplify anchor operations, is hidden behind a flush-fitting hatch in the bow and can be operated at the touch of a button from the helm station.
The standard propulsion package comprises the new Volvo IPS 650 engines (twin totalling 1020 Hp) with user-friendly joystick controls for a top speed of 38 knots. The optional gyroscopic stabiliser is housed in a separate technical compartment, which also houses the electrical switchboards.
The first unit of the wallytender48 is currently under construction at the Ferretti Group construction site in Forlì-Italy, and will be ready before the summer. Get ready and watch the video of the new must have of the day cruisers!
