wally unveils a 43ft tender with a center cockpit for increased comfort and protection

monoco-based yacht brand, wally, has revealed its latest luxury tender called the ’43wallytender’. following the ‘tender X‘ and other earlier models, this 43ft (13m) cruiser is designed to suit a variety of uses: from family day boat to resort shuttle.

the 43wallytender carries up to 12 people and can travel at 40 knots. the tender is designed around a center cockpit, which provides all the protection of a cockpit with the practicality and access of a walkaround. this layout combines the enjoyment of being in the open air with the added security and comfort usually experienced on a more enclosed yacht. this yacht-like luxury is also extended to features such as the generous bathroom facilities with standing headroom and separate shower compartment, a cabin with bed, and a range of deck configurations.

‘thanks to wally’s iconic design heritage and innovation developed over more than 25 years, with the 43wallytender our team 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 evolved our offering to satisfy the yacht owners of today and tomorrow by elevating the day-boat yachting standards,’ comments stefano de vivo, wally managing director. ‘upholding wally’s customary cool aesthetics and extraordinary performance, this addition to the wally family is surely a benchmark of the future’.

developed alongside ferretti group’s technical engineering department, the tender is constructed in advanced composites with carbon fiber at wally’s new production site in forlì, italy. the 43wallytender is available in a range of head-turning colors. the first unit shown here has a striking iridescent green hull. the t-top is made from laminated sail cloth, drawing on wally’s sailing heritage, and is designed to maximize visibility from the cockpit while the semi-transparent material allows natural light to filter through.

the flush, open deck space behind the cockpit coupled with the standard wings provide the ideal platform to accommodate guests or to transport sails for a racing superyacht during a busy regatta season. the addition of a fold-out dining table, seating and raised sunbed convert the tender into a perfect family day boat, resort shuttle or yacht tender. further storage in an optional aft sunbed creates the ultimate platform for watersports activities, with space to stow wakeboards, scuba diving tanks and other small watertoys.

owners of the 43wallytender have a full armory of accessories and features at their disposal, which can be stored when not in use and then swapped in at a shipyard between seasons in just a day or two. ‘our team has worked tirelessly to create a 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,’ adds luca bassani, chief designer and founder of the monegasque brand.

the 43wallytender comes with a wide range of premium equipment as standard, including the carbon t-top, LED deck lighting, concealed hydraulic push-button anchor system, side-opening bulwark wings to extend the deck space (carried over from the 48wallytender), teak decking, and the classic wally wraparound fender system. the cruiser can also be customized to meet a client’s specific needs.
