Wajer 38: Wajer & Wajer Flagship

The Wajer 38: A Contemporary Yacht with Unrivalled Luxury

Wajer & Wajer in the Netherlands flagship, the Wajer 38 has a spacious walk-in aft and a large three-person sundeck forward are two of many unique features of this clever design. And behind the elegant streamlined windscreen with its striking wooden frame lies a contemporary and exceptionally stylish interior.


The Wajer 38 motor yacht perfectly combines the performance and quality for leisure sailing. As the luxury day boat was mainly built for long sailing trips and seated passengers, this powerful vessel also offers ultra-comfortable boarding and more space to relax. “With its unique mix of power, elegance and luxury, the Wajer 38 marks the start of a new and superior class of yachts,” says Dries Wajer.

Expanding the family

The harmonious proportions, flowing lines and stunning use of teak and mahogany make the Wajer 38 a very welcome addition to the Wajer & Wajer fleet. The story began with the Wajer 37, which was named ‘Motorboat of the Year’ soon after its launch in 2006. The line was expanded in 2010 with the practical Wajer 34. New technologies have helped make the Wajer 38 faster, more efficient and around thirty percent quieter than the two earlier models. Its comfortable walk-in and spacious sundeck are unique for this category of luxury motor yachts.

Unrivalled luxury

The interior and cockpit have been given a complete makeover, evolving from the classic, stylish luxury of the Wajer 37 to a more contemporary ambiance with smooth, symmetrical lines that enhance the feeling of spaciousness and freedom. The central dashboard is a skipper’s delight, with a 15-inch LED monitor that is easy to read, even in bright sunshine, and an electric anchor that can be controlled from the steering position. The high-tech cockpit is predominantly finished in leather and matt-black anodized aluminum. The captain's chair and both seats have been placed on supports specifically designed for the Wajer 38, with adjustable gas pressure springs and dampers ensuring optimal comfort.


In addition to the use of top-quality materials and production methods, yacht building is increasingly focused on sustainability with regard to fuel consumption and CO2 emissions as well as reliability and maintenance. The Wajer 38 is therefore equipped with a complete Mastervolt system linked to integrated Imtech monitoring. These two specialist Wajer & Wajer suppliers have excellent reputations due to the superior reliability of their products and many years of experience in commercial yacht building.

Wajer & Wajer once again selected Volvo engines for the Wajer 38. These offer an excellent weight/kW (hp) ratio, silent operation and low consumption and emission values, in combination with a powerful performance and minimal maintenance.


The Wajer 38 can as an option be fitted with two powerful Volvo D6-DP 435 hp six-cylinder diesels in combination with IPS600 dual pod propulsion. This extremely efficient joystick-controllable propulsion system provides greater ease of operation and more precise steering compared to conventional propeller shaft propulsion, as well as a ten to fifteen percent higher performance and a remarkable top speed of 45 knots (approx. 85 km/h). Weight savings of over 300 kg have been achieved by the use of new lightweight materials, among other things. The exceptionally strong hull optimizes the dynamic sailing characteristics, while the unprecedented course stability and maneuverability at high speeds provide a sense of total control.


No two Wajer 38 yachts will be alike. The options program from the yard in Heeg (Friesland) provides plenty of practical and interesting choices, such as spraying the hull, deck or cockpit in a favorite unicolor or metallic paint. A rear-view camera can optimize the ease of operation during maneuvering or waterskiing, while a high-end audio system developed specifically for the Wajer 38 (including three amps, eight speakers and two subwoofers) can offer the same level of audio quality as at home. A gangway integrated within the aft ship is another option. The majority of the first seven Wajer 38 owners chose 40 hp jet surf boards and diving equipment seamlessly incorporated within the storage space.

Yachting pleasure

The unique cockpit layout of the Wajer 38 ensures that the helmsman has perfect lines of sight all round without being isolated from family, friends or guests. The elegant convertible hood provides protection for up to nine people in all conditions. The slender and effective spray rails are dynamically integrated within the hull design. Combined with the flared bow, the cockpit is kept dry without affecting the yacht’s performance.
