Wajer Yachts introduces the Wajer 44. A yacht with optimal proportions and a perfect balance between sportiveness and comfort. The new model has considerably more volume than the Wajer 38, but at 13 meters she's more compact than the Wajer 55. A spacious, open day boat that is also suitable for comfortable overnight stays for two people. Connectivity is the keyword because this model is fully equipped for smart boating via the Wajer Owners App.
In the summer of 2023, the first Wajer 44 will be launched, of which more than 20 have been pre-ordered. The 44S and 44HT will also become available.
When design connects
The Wajer 44 is completely focused on the Smart Boating concept. The owner can use the Wajer Owners App to connect to his Wajer 44 remotely. For example, to check the anchor position of the yacht during lunch on the beach. The air conditioning and hydraulically operated swimming ladder can also be easily operated via the app to ensure everything is ready when you step on board. The connectivity is not only available in the technical gadgets but is also implemented in the deck layout. The outdoor benches form a U-shape allowing the guests on board to literally connect together more easily.
Undeniable Wajer DNA
In terms of looks, the Wajer 44 is clearly family. The design and the sheer have many similarities with those of the Wajer 77. As with all Wajers, the lines of the 44 have been kept as clean as possible. The swing-over anchor arm fully retracts into the anchor hatch and even the cleats are seamlessly incorporated for the sleek and high-quality appearance that is characteristic of the Wajer fleet. The captain operates the boat through three flush-mounted Garmin screens that completely fill the dashboard. The cockpit is further equipped with a custom Wajer-design steering wheel and three sprung carbon shell seats.
Thanks to two Volvo IPS650 engines, a cruising speed of 26 knots and a top speed (half load) of 40 knots can be achieved. Owing to the optimised construction philosophy, the Wajer 44 is even quieter than its counterparts.
The interior of the Wajer 44 is furnished with a full double bed (1.60x2.10) that transforms easily into a sitting area with a (dining) table. Of course, there is also a bathroom with a shower and toilet.
The pantry is equipped with a refrigerator, a sink with hot and cold water, a coffee machine and an ice machine.
Fun in and out of the sun
There is plenty of room for sun worshippers, both at the front and rear of the Wajer 44, on the spacious lounging areas with ergonomically designed back supports. For those who prefer the comfort of shade, the redesigned bimini is perfect. The easily removable carbon brackets ensure that the bimini is in keeping with the sleek design of the yacht.
For water sports enthusiasts, the stern has ample storage space for toys, such as seabobs and electric surfboards.
Dries Wajer: “We are proud to welcome the Wajer 44 into the family. A yacht with ample outdoor space and the possibility for two people to overnight. The Wajer 44 is not only state-of-the-art in terms of design but also in terms of connectivity. As an owner, you can view all data in the Wajer app and operate your boat remotely, no matter where you are.”
