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.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.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 colors 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 color 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.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 440hp engines for predicted top speeds of over 40 knots.
