Wajer & Wajer has just launched its new flagship, the Osprey 38. She’s a Vripack design that is said to be about 30 percent quieter than the builder’s Osprey 34 and 37 models, even while screaming across the water at 45 knots.

The Osprey 38 has sexy styling with teak and mahogany pretty much everywhere. Her high-tech cockpit is finished in leather and matte-black anodized aluminum, highlighting a 15-inch LED monitor that is designed for viewing even in bright sunlight. Seating is on supports with adjustable gas pressure springs and dampers, to ensure a comfortable ride at top speed, and the skipper will have joystick control of the 435-hp Volvo D6-DP diesels and IPS600 dual-pod propulsion system.

Options include custom paint in regular or metallic shades. A rear-view camera is available, along with a high-end audio system, integrated passerelle, and even a 40-hp Jet Surf board.

Base price is €575,000, or about $750,000 at the current conversion rate. Learn more at www.wajer.nl.
