48 Wallytender, avant-garde design and thrilling performance

The new model retains the stylish solutions of the original Wallytender that define the Wally philosophy of combining form and function, but introduces innovative new features to enhance the yachting experience.

The 48 Wallytender has generous interior volumes with an elegant suite combining the sailing heritage of teak decking with panels and fittings in carbon fibre, a material introduced to the yachting world by Wally in 1991. The challenge here was to raise the freeboard without losing the purity of the hull lines associated with all Wallys.

The 48 Wallytender is the only one in its segment to offer as standard fold-down bulwark sections to increase the swim platform for relaxation and party moments at anchor, an evolution of the innovation introduced by Wally in 2002 on the 118 Wallypower.

A relevant feature is also the retractable passarelle that doubles as a swim ladder, included as standard too. On deck, the layout has been designed to let family and friends relax in convivial comfort with generous seating and sunbeds, and alfresco dining thanks to the well-equipped galley unit.

To fully enjoy the on-the-water experience both at anchor and underway, the aft seating can be configured to face either forward or the dining table. A special anchoring system 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 wraparound fender is a trademark feature of Wallytenders and provides a practical docking solution instead of bulky fenders.

The propulsion package comprises the twin Volvo IPS 650 engines (totalling 960hp) for a top speed of 38 knots and is equipped with user-friendly joystick controls for easy docking. Last but not least, the 48 Wallytender is a great family boat and child-friendly with a single-level teak deck as standard and deep bulwarks, so that you always feel “in” rather than “on” the boat.
