After spending some rare quality time with Luca Bassani, the creative and innovative founder of Wally Yachts in Monaco last year, I learned first-hand why his iconic sailing and power yachts have revolutionized modern yacht performance (and style) better than any other brand being built today.
So, I’m hardly surprised that Wally’s newest design—the 48 Wallytender—boasts the striking good looks and superior performance the Wally brand is known for. And of course this new design also features Bassani’s legendary style and innovative features including fold-down bulwark sections to transform the cockpit into a party pad. Large interior volume with a true cabin and a real shower cubicle to make weekend cruising easy and comfortable.
The view from on-deck galley will impress even the most demanding chefs. And the retractable passarelle that also functions as deep swim ladder will make it as easy to board the boat at the dock as it is from the water.
And the slick anchoring system is not only easy to use with a touch of a button from the helm station. But it looks sexy too. Leave it to Wally and Bassani to make an anchor look sexy!
Meanwhile, the Wallytender 48 boasts nearly 1,000 horsepower and is capable to hitting 38-knots at sea, but it looks so good, you may never want to take it off your private dock. And now that Bassani’s company has been acquired by the Italian yachting titan, Ferretti Group, this 48-footer only the beginning.
