Fitted with Mercury’s state-of-the-art 450hp Verado R powerful engines, the lightest and most fuel-efficient outboards on the market, combined with dependable hull design and light carbon fiber construction from in-house experts at Wally and Ferretti Group, the 48 Wallytender X delivers high top speeds and very low consumptions for extended range. Preliminary sea trials have indicated maximum speeds in excess of 55 knots and a cruising speed of 40 knots with a range of 320nm.
Alongside the performance advantages of outboard engines, the 48 Wallytender X provides a quiet ride thanks to reduced noise and vibration, as well as being light and easy to maintain. With the engines repositioned outside the hull, vast space is freed up for storage, and – as with the inboard model – the 48 Wallytender X features user-friendly joystick controls for easy docking.
A challenge for owners of boats with outboard engines can be the access from the stern, with banks of multiple outboards prohibiting easy boarding or entry to the water from the aft. Not so with the 48 Wallytender X. As a first in its category, Wally has ingeniously split the four engines to the flanks of the boat, with two on each side, allowing the installation of the retractable hydraulic boarding passerelle/swim ladder to provide direct and easy access to the water or the shore.
The deck layout of the 48 Wallytender X is welcoming and comfortable and offers generous seating, sunbeds and alfresco dining catered to by the well-equipped galley unit. And with the sideways-opening bulwarks that boating enthusiasts have come to know and love from Wally, the open “beach” effect on the aft of the boat is a remarkable feature also included in this model.
