Dries Wajer about

Welcome to Wajer

Welcome to Wajer Yachts. On this website you’ll find everything you need to know about our boats, the way we build them and how they can enrich your life. I’m hoping these pages will get you excited enough to book a sea trial on one of our yachts. Because to be fair, all the words and pictures in the world can’t prepare you for the real thing. But for now, enjoy the tour and feel free to contact us anytime if we’ve left you wanting more.


Best regards,

Family Matters

For almost three decades, the Wajer name has been synonymous with the best boats money can buy. In 1992, Dorus Wajer started building his own launches on the lakes near Amsterdam. The Captain’s Launch, famous for her quality, craftsmanship and iconic lines, embodies the Wajer spirit to this day.

Our craft

Design

With her fluent lines, deep riding cockpit and low window frames, a Wajer yacht looks like she’s slicing through the water even when she’s moored. Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design helps us create our timeless designs that are equally aesthetic as aerodynamic.

Innovation

When driving a boat is this intuitive, it’s easy to forget the innovative thinking that went into it. Like deploying and retracting inflatable fenders with the push of a button. Or dropping the anchor remotely from the steering console, watching it go on a screen in the cockpit. Everything about a Wajer gives you the feeling it has been designed around your needs.

Performance

Wajer yachts are among the fastest boats in their class. The Volvo Penta IPS system makes them faster, quieter and go further with less fuel and lower emissions. Docking is a piece of cake with joystick control. And every Wajer rides super smooth thanks to the deep-V hull design.

Quality

A boat’s exterior is only half the story – what is hidden behind the panelling and underneath the floors is just as important in the long run. That’s why a Wajer’s beautiful exterior houses the very best in technical engineering.

Handmade

All our boats are made by hand in the northern Netherlands. Wajer craftsmen are enormously dedicated and skilled in their own field. We have world-class specialists in woodworking, technological systems, design, epoxy construction, and more. And since they are handcrafted, no two boats are the same. What’s more, every model can be individualised and is built to order.

Made in Holland

Wajer Yachts are handmade in the north of the Netherlands by the most skilled of specialists. Something you can feel in the wheel in your hands, the support of the seats when you open the throttle. From the deck to the wiring below it, every detail is made of the finest materials.

The Yard

Our yard includes a 4,000 m2 production hall, 1,500 m2 of winter storage and 16 fixed boathouses. Located in the northern Dutch province of Friesland, we have access to a rich tradition of skilled boatbuilders. It’s here where some 55 craftsmen design, build, test and tune every yacht by hand until she’s ready for launch.
