Without a doubt one of the most graceful yet exhilarating sailing yachts on the planet. Luca Bassani and Hoek Design collaboration in full carbon construction, she has the quality to match her looks and pace. NIJI is a very special yacht with the benefit of extensive recent refit and upgrades.
FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS: Launched in 2009 and hull No.2 of the Wallynano fleet, NIJI has been extensively refitted in recent seasons to become a comfortable cruising ‘weekender’ as well as a formidable competitor to the Wallynano fleet and Spirit of Tradition class at PalmaVela or Les Voile de Saint Tropez event.
Her specification highlights include:- • Repainted topsides, coamings, and superstructure – 2018 • New Volvo D1-20 3-cylinder engine – 2018 • Hall Spars carbon mast (2-part for transport) and boom – inspected 2023 • Cariboni hydraulics for genoa, backstay, and vang – serviced 2023 • Elvstrom EPEX sails from 2021 • Furling Code 0 • Gennaker • Self-tacking jib with full beam track on foredeck • Raymarine electronics including Wi-Fi chart plotter and mast mounted MFDs • Raymarine integrated autopilot • Fusion Bluetooth stereo system – 2020 • Recently replaced batteries (3x service batteries) • 220vAC shore power and battery charger • Pressurised hot and cold fresh water • Marine heads • Fridge/freezer • Full winter cover • Cockpit and sunbathing cushions • Capable of fitting inside a standard 40ft shipping container with all its gear (dismounted) including rudder, keel and mast (designed to be split in two parts).
EU VAT paid and German-flagged, NIJI represents the perfect opportunity to gain immediate and convenient access to this stunning and exciting one design fleet. NIji is about the only Wally Nano with extended motoring capabilities and range up to 250 nm for island hopping and simple day cruising across bays.
Perfection in form rarely comes with such impeccable performance attributes. The wallynano37 is an object of profound beauty, with lines drawn by the redoubtable André Hoek. But in step with Wally’s core values, Hoek’s stunning naval architecture means the hull is totally geared for sailing speed and handling below the waterline.
Plumb bows and long overhangs aft look good, but they also give the boat extra buoyancy forward to punch through the waves and additional waterline length for greater speed on the heel. A single spade rudder and deep 2.6m bulb keel combine to offer incredible stability and control, even with the full 75sqm upwind sailplan.
Downwind she is a rocket as well, capable of sustaining 20 knots with a big Code sail or gennaker. And her lightweight carbon build means that she performs well under sail even in light airs.
The wallynano37 will bring home trophies, but it also makes a wonderful dayboat for cruising with family or picnicking in a deserted bay. Her beautiful interior is a flexible open space, offering a berth for up to four and a head.
