3 August 2021• Written by Miranda Blazeby

Dutch yacht builder Wajer Yachts has launched its first 23.5 metre Wajer 77 yacht in the Côte d'Azur. 

The largest model in the Wajer fleet hit the water amid a gathering of 40 Wajer yachts and their owners. It comes after the builder announced it had sold 15 Wajer 77 models in May 2021. 

"It was an unforgettable day," said owner of Wajer Yachts, Dries Wajer

"It was an unforgettable day," said Dries Wajer, owner of Wajer Yachts. "The welcoming fleet showed how strong our community is. I can't wait to show her to the rest of the world." 

The Wajer 77 has an adjustable deck layout and automatic Targa roof

The Wajer 77 was designed in collaboration with Sinot Yacht Architecture and Design and Van Oossanen Naval Architects.

Built in aluminium, the yacht is packed with “Wajer innovations”, the builder said, including deck cooling technology, an adjustable deck layout and automatic Targa roof. The yacht also includes a hybrid fender system, which automatically inflates the fenders ready for use and deflates them for easy storage.

Accommodation comes for nine

Power comes from three Volvo Penta IPS 1350 engines for a top speed of 37 knots and a range of 400 nautical miles.

The Dutch builder has sold 15 models of the range

Accommodation meanwhile is for a total of nine, including seven guests in the master cabin, junior suite at the bow and port side guest cabin, which features a double and single bed. The crew cabin meanwhile sleeps a staff of two. The interior has a standing height of 2.35 metres and air conditioning in every room.

The Wajer 77 is focused on outdoor living and includes sunpads forward and large sofas and an al fresco dining area aft. The Wajer 77 is also equipped to carry Seabibs, jet surfboards, a Williams 325 Jet Tender and has plenty of room for diving equipment, kiteboarding gear and a Jet Ski.

The Wajer 77 is now the largest of the Wajer fleet
