Wally’s Newest Day Boat Redefines Fun In The Sun

The stylish tender can also hit a top speed of 40 knots.

By Bryan Hood 05/11/2020

Not all boats are conquerors the sea, some are just designed for long, lazy, sunny afternoons – drink firmly in hand. No boat builder knows that more than Wally Yachts, which is why its latest offering is basically one expansive, beautifully designed sun deck.

The just-unveiled 43wallytender is a watercraft that wants to bring your day-boating to the next level. The 13-metre vessel features an angular, athletic profile, with a cockpit defined by a hardtop and large open deck. That teak-covered deck–the star of the show–offers space for sunning, along with four benches and a table for socialising. Even better, bulwark wings in the aft quarters fold out to super-size deck space.

For privacy, the mini-deck in the bow seats two or three. All together, the yacht will seat twelve.

Of course, this new Wally is more than just a sunbathing platform. The 43wallytender is also loaded with yacht-like features and comforts. Chief among these is the cabin, with a plush bed for naps, and large head, with a separate shower compartment; the carbon composite hull, and LED deck lighting. The yacht maker will also customise features for each client.

The 43wallytender also packs a decent punch. The vessel is powered by twin 380-hp Volvo Penta sterndrives, which can be upgraded to twin 440-hp Volvos. Those can push the boat to speeds in excess of 40 knots.

Other technical features include user-friendly joystick controls and a concealed push-button anchor system.

Wally has yet to reveal pricing for its latest tender, but you can register through its website now. If you’re intrigued by the 43wallytender but prefer a little more punch, there’s also the brand’s 48 Tender X. Introduced at last year’s Miami International Boat Show, the Tender X isn’t as well-appointed as this latest offering, but it’s faster, thanks to four 450-hp Mercury Racing outboards.
