Wajer 38 S: Sporty Center Console

Posted Date: February 22, 2016     By: Wajer Americas

Pure Sports, Pure Pleasure
Wajer & Wajer presents the Wajer 38 S.  The most striking aspect of this new boat is the centrally located cockpit under a sturdy hardtop bimini.  The center console layout has freed up a great deal of space on board for comfortable socializing and relaxing, with enhanced freedom of movement for all passengers.  The helmsman has excellent visibility at all times – but this is where any comparison with conventional center consoles ends.

The challenge was to develop a yacht tender that would combine the characteristic Wajer & Wajer performance, superior sailing qualities and optimum handling performance, while providing ample space for relaxation and recreational activities. 
Because the new Wajer 38 S is intended as a day boat or luxury tender for superyachts, it has a completely redesigned forward deck.  It includes a robust towing eye, allowing the boat to be easily and safely towed anywhere. Sleeping accommodations have given way to a spacious sun deck with room for a large table with U-shaped sitting area.  The new arrangement has also created ample storage space below the forward deck for all cushions.
Central Cockpit
A centrally placed cockpit is new design element for Wajer & Wajer.  The Wajer 38 S can be operated with ease from two luxurious Stidd helm seats with springs, which are located behind a large windscreen and well protected from the heat of the sun by a tough bimini.  Full digital dashboard controls and a Raymarine 12-inch system with touchscreen are ergonomically designed with the needs of the helmsman in mind.
LED lighting in the bimini top makes for a cozy ambiance on board in the evenings.  The cockpit provides room for a large refrigerator to starboard and a concealed trash basket to port.  A comfortable toilet space with sink is easily accessed in the center console.     
The hull, spacious walk-in closet at the stern and broad sundeck aft have all been carried over from the Wajer 38. The equally reliable and powerful Volvo propulsion line is also featured on the 38 S.  Slender but highly effective spray rails dynamically incorporated into the design of the hull ensure that – in combination with the flared bow – the cockpit remains dry in all conditions without affecting the aerodynamics.
Sailing, Sunbathing and Recreation
Its unique functionalities mean that the Wajer 38 S adds a whole new dimension to the boating experience.  Storage areas integrated below deck and in the hull provide space for all kinds of recreation gear.  And there is room for all the toys: fishing equipment and water skis, paddleboards and surfboards, seabobs and diving gear for up to four people.  Elegant storage solutions ensure these items are out of sight when not in use – everything has its own dedicated place.
In addition to using high-quality materials and production methods wherever possible, Wajer & Wajer is increasingly focusing on sustainability, especially when it comes to fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.  This is why the new Wajer 38 S features a comprehensive Whisper Power system coupled with integrated monitoring by Raymarine. Wajer & Wajer again chose Volvo engines for this new model, resulting in an excellent weight/power (hp) ratio, silent rotation qualities and low fuel consumption and emissions.
Minimal Maintenance
Everything about the new Wajer 38 S is focused on minimizing maintenance and maximizing ease of use.  The bow, side deck and swim platform are therefore made of composite with teak structure, a material that is colorfast, slip & wear-resistant, and maintenance-free.  A rub rail placed around the entire boat protects all paintwork from scratches. And the Volvo engines have already definitively proven on the Wajer 38 that they need only minimal maintenance.  
In the standard Americas version, the new Wajer 38 S is fitted with twin Volvo IPS600 D6-435 hp six-cylinder diesel engines combined with dual IPS pod drives.  The IPS dual pod is a propulsion system that can be efficiently controlled with a joystick.  It ensures greater operational comfort, more precise steering and 10 to 15% higher performance than conventional propeller shaft propulsion, with the top speed being increased to some 47 knots.
Weight savings of over 2,115 lbs. compared to the Wajer 38 have been achieved through methods such as the use of innovative, lightweight materials, while the redesign of the bow section enhances the dynamic sailing performance. Unprecedented directional stability and controllability at high speed give a sense of total control.
There will be no two identical Wajer 38 S boats.  The numerous options available are as varied as they are useful. For instance, the hull, deck and/or cockpit can be painted in the owner’s preferred color, including metallic colors.  A rear view camera can also considerably increase cruising comfort, especially when maneuvering or water skiing.  And a special high-end audio system developed especially for Wajer, consisting of three amps, eight speakers and two subwoofers, delivers at least the same sound quality as at home or in the car.
