The new Wajer 55 S: explore the S-Factor

23 apr 2018

The S-Factor

The S-factor in the Wajer 55 S meets all the requirements of modern watersporters. Three powerful 435 HP Volvo Penta IPS600 engines for joystick driving and dynamic positioning, offering an impressive top speed of over 40 knots.

 “We find it very important to listen to the wishes of our customers,” says Dries Wajer, commercial director of Wajer Yachts. “We use this information to fuel the continuous innovation on our vessels. The Wajer 55 S is the logical continuation of the sales success of the Wajer 55, of which we have now sold more than 30.”

Fun en comfort
The new model features the finely tuned finishing, comfort and aesthetics to which Wajer owners are accustomed. The Wajer 55 S’s hardtop roof consists of removable panels and can be extended to provide shade for the lounging area aft of the captain's seats. The outdoor galley, with grill, refrigerator and icemaker, is another new feature pioneered by this model.

Navigation is very simple and clear thanks to the built-in Volvo Penta Glass Cockpit System. Four forward-facing Stidd captain's seats and two elegant Garmin touchscreens allow the whole family to take part in navigating. And the state-of-the-art custom-made audio system makes any stay on board a party.

The boat can be expanded as desired with a stabilising system, carbon finishing and a swimming platform for even more comfort.

Like its flagship sibling, the Wajer 55 S was designed in partnership with Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design, while Vripack Naval Architects designed the hull.

Other 55 S features of note include:
- Three powerful 435 HP IPS600 Volvo Penta engines with joystick and Dynamic Positioning.
- Volvo Penta Glass Cockpit System with two touchscreens by Garmin.
- Williams 2.80 MiniJet in storage.

- Four forward facing Stidd captain’s chairs.
- High-end custom-made audio system.
