The European Yacht Boutique takes on a world leader of yachting innovation, debuting the Wallytender X at Yachts Miami Beach
Fort Lauderdale, FL – Since its arrival in South Florida merely 5 years ago, G Marine, has become the exclusive dealer of fine European yachts brands including Fairline, Astondoa, EVO Yachts and now adds Wallytender, one of the world’s most iconic brands. Based in Monte Carlo, Monaco, Wally has revolutionized yacht design with its unmarched boats, having launched over 45 sailing yachts and more than 120 power boats from 45’ upwards that uniquely combine the latest technology and contemporary design.
G Marine will display the newest addition, the Wallytender X at Yachts Miami Beach in its booth at Entrance 5 New Yachts Docks A1-5 / A14-19 (across from the Fontainebleau Hotel). The Wallytender X is the latest version of the Wallytender, which debuted in 2001 opening up a new market. The boat was created for high-speed lovers with its triple Mercury 400 HP outboards, originally developed for racing, providing 60 knots, combining speed and comfort. The 45’ boat has a 13’ beam and many luxury features like teak decking, carbon fiber trim and metallic paints.
The vast walk-around deck features two sun lounges, one forward that converts into a casual dining area, with a pop-up table, and one aft. The Raymarine-equipped central helm console incorporates all controls for easy single-handed operation, simplifying maneuvering and handling and enhancing safety. Two refrigerators exemplify some of the comfort features, and a below-deck cabin with head, adds overnight jaunts to the joy of open-air living on the water.
Designed by Luca Bassani, Wally founder and chief designer, the Wallytender X combines lightweight composite construction and advanced hull design to produce a boat that runs smoothly at speed in any seas and can carry 12 people in safety and comfort. The luxurious onboard experience is created by the clean and practical solutions, which are applied to every detail, using custom-made components that define the Wally approach to functional design with style.
G Marine believes that this boat perfectly fits into the performance center console growth market, that reflects the ever-changing lifestyle of today’s boater. The boat accommodates day cruising, watersports and even fishing; its hard top provides shade to the captain and helm seated passengers, and two optional awnings with carbon poles can shade both the forward social cockpit and the aft sun pad.
“We are very proud to be the sole dealer for Wallytender and to add the excellence and respect of the brand to our European lines from Spain, England and Italy,” says David Galante, G Marine COO, “The Wallytender is built for the most discerning clientele; it gives us the ability to best serve our current clients and the expanded needs of yachting enthusiasts across the Americas.”
“Wally is pleased to be part of G Marine’s portfolio of European brands for its sound reliability and reputation,” says Luca Bassani, “We are convinced that this new product with the outboard propulsion is the perfect fit for carefree days on the water of beautiful South Florida and Central America, offering the ultimate performance experience, blended with our distinguished style.”
