Wajer Yachts has been creating elegant, powerful and luxurious open day boats for almost a quarter of a century. The yard made history with award-winning models such as the Captains Launch, Wajer 37 and Wajer 38. Today Wajer Yachts continues to be driven by innovation and a desire to offer owners an impeccable sailing performance.

As a family-owned business, Wajer Yachts is renowned for its customer focused approach, high standard of service and premium Dutch quality. Company founder Dorus Wajer has spent most of his life on the water. Being a perfectionist, he often used to come up with ways to improve the boats he saw. Following his heart, Dorus started building his own launches on the lakes near Amsterdam in 1992. The Captain’s Launch, still famous for its quality, craftsmanship and iconic lines, dates from this period.
Thanks to a constant emphasis on product development, Wajer Yachts went from strength to strength over the years. In 2010, Dorus’ son Dries, who shares his father’s vision, perfectionism and passion for watersports, joined the company. Together they have further developed the Wajer models and enhanced the company’s professionalism.
A new standard
One of Dorus’ career highlights is the introduction of the new Wajer 55 in the summer of 2016. Using innovative lightweight materials and state-of-the-art production methods, the Wajer craftsmen have excelled themselves to provide a perfect balance of dynamic sailing and extraordinary comfort. The Wajer 55 blends all the characteristics that have made the Wajer brand, including an excellent performance, first-class quality, eye for detail and elegant design. Dorus, Dries and the yard that bears their name will again set a new benchmark for this class of motorboat.
Wajer had a prominent presence in Monaco during the recent Grand Prix, with no less than 20 of our yachts transporting teams and guests for various parties from their superyachts and hotels to the F1 race track. Since the whole city is closed for traffic during the Grand Prix, transport by water tends to be the most efficient (and pleasant) way to move around during this iconic event.
Established in 1992 in Heeg (NL), Wajer is renowned for its forward-thinking approach. The yard has made history with unique models – the Captain’s Launch (Kapiteinsloep), the Wajer 37, 38, 38 S and 55 – each characterised by elegant design, impeccable sailing performance and excellent durability. All boats share the premium quality that customers expect from premium Dutch design and production.
