Wally, part of the Ferretti Group in Italy, has sold three hulls of the 48 Wallytender before the yacht even makes its debut this September at the Cannes Yachting Festival.

The first three hulls will go to owners in Europe and the United States, according to the builder. Hull No. 3, along with Hull No. 4, are expected to be in Cannes—one with gunmetal gray paint, and the other painted “Sahara sand.”

The 48 Wallytender is a reimagining of the original Wallytender, which served as a superyacht tender as well as a day boat. The new version has teak decks, carbon-fiber fittings, raised freeboard, and fold-down bulwark sections that increase the size of the swim platform at anchor. The retractable passarelle doubles as a swim ladder.

How fast will she go? 38 knots, according to Wally, which is installing twin 430-horsepower Volvo Penta IPS650 engines.
