Wajer & Wajer has introduced their new flagship, the 11.30 metre Osprey 38. Mainly built for long cruising trips, she offers comfortable and spacious areas for up twelve guests.
New technologies on board have resulted in the Osprey 38 being faster, more efficient and 30% quieter than the shipyard’s two earlier models, the Osprey 37 which was launched in 2006, and the Osprey 34, launched in 2010. A spacious walk-in aft and a large three-person sundeck forward are two unique features of this new design.
The interior and cockpit have been given a complete makeover, evolving from the classic, luxury of the Osprey 37 to a more contemporary ambiance with smooth, symmetrical lines that enhance the feeling of spaciousness and freedom. The high-tech cockpit is predominantly finished in leather and matte-black anodised aluminium.
Fitted with two Volvo D6-DP 435 hp IPS600 engines, she boasts a top speed of 45 knots. The engines were specifically selected due to their excellent weight/kW (hp) ratio, silent operation and low consumption and emission values, in combination with a powerful performance and minimal maintenance. Dries Wajer of Wajer & Wajer comments, “With its unique mix of power, elegance and luxury, the Osprey 38 marks the start of a new and superior class of yachts.”
The shipyard offers significant room for customisation, including spraying the hull, deck or cockpit in a favourite unicolour or metallic paint; a rear-view camera which optimises the ease of operation during manoeuvring or waterskiing; a high-end audio system developed specifically for this vessel; and a gangway integrated within the aft ship. Representatives have perceived that the majority of the first seven Osprey 38 owners chose 40 hp jetsurf boards and diving equipment seamlessly incorporated within the storage space.
The unique cockpit layout of the Osprey 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 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.
The Dutch King has recently purchased an Osprey 38 from Wajer & Wajer. The yacht, named Aldebaran, will be moored at his holiday house in Greece.
