A Stunning New Leisure Vessel from the Netherlands

Wajer & Wajer, the Dutch builder of sophisticated weekend cruisers and tenders, has launched its new flagship, the Osprey 38. Whereas the yard’s previous flagship, the Osprey 37, was more of a transport tender, the Osprey 38 is a true leisure vessel, with more padded deck areas for lounging and the ability to use it as a ski boat (with an optional rear-facing video camera). The Osprey 37 is also much sparser in its design, while this new model is more elegant, with cues taken from classic cruisers from Riva and Chris-Craft. Optional propulsion packages for the Osprey 38 include dual 435 hp Volvo diesel engines, which enable a 45-knot top speed, mated to a joystick-controlled pod-propulsion system that allows for easy docking and manoeuvring. The Osprey 38 can be customized with a selection of woods, leathers, and finishes, and a high-performance audio system. The boat is also available with powered Jetsurf boards and diving equipment with dedicated storage space. Wajer & Wajer says that deliveries of the Osprey 38, which starts at about $760,000, will be available in the United States in early 2014.
