Love me tender, love me true...
The WallyDinghy is the 10-meter (33-foot) motorboat developed along the same successful concepts of the WallyTender: a boat to enjoy open-air living and the sea, running smoothly on the waves at 30-35 knots.
This boat serves as a perfect runabout or a comfortable tender for mega yachts, with an engine locker under the aft cushion that covers a 200 bhp, strong Mercruiser Motor. The anchor is stored in the forward locker, leaving the deck clear and the boat can comfortably seat six to eight people. The navigation console is located amidships to enhance safety, providing the driver with a clear field of view both under way, and while docking. The console also incorporates all controls to provide single handled operation, and hosts a head with shower and sink.
A built in handrail offers safe holding at speed, while the wrap around fender keeps the occupants of the boat comfortably dry when moving quickly; it also provides a practical solution for boarding and docking. The speakers of the hi-fi are integrated with the hull of the boat, and the deck is made of teak that dries out very quickly and is easy to maintain.
Of course (Wally) individuality has its price: around 310.000 Euro.
