    As we speak Wajer has delivered one Wajer 38 in white as a tender for a superyacht in
    St Maarten.
    And there is one underway for the miami show.
    I spoke withe the owner of the yard and it's an exciting, but also a finacial risk to go overseas.
    It' a financial healthy company without banks involved.

    What will be the color scheme of the Miami boat?

    IMHO she will be very well received at Miami and on this side of the pond in general.

    How could people anywhere not help but fall in love with such beautiful craft??!!

    Went to the Wajer display at Palm Beach Boat Show. Having read the previous 27 posts, I was looking forward to seeing in-person. Went to the display and stood on the dock at the transom admiring the much written about paint job. Didn't want to board without permission and waited several minutes for the 5-6 guys at the display to make a move. Went next door to the Lyman-Morse display and caught up with an old friend. Made another pass at Wajer and no one was interested in getting up to welcome me aboard or at least yell out to help myself. I know, I could have walked over to the nearby group comfortably seated and asked them rather than vice-versa but whether it was arrogance, disinterest, or whatever, it just felt rude. Maybe someone will read this post and call a sales protocol meeting before the show is over. Oh well... :(

    I just texted the Dutch guy at the stand and he told me that he is very sorry to hear that you were disappointed that nobody approached you.

    Well, in contrast to what JWY posted, I too visited the Wajer display at the Palm Beach Show. And let me say, I cannot afford this boat in my wildest dreams. However, I still wanted to stop by their display as I have seen their boats via social media and wanted to see them in person.

    I was approached immediately by a salesman and I told him I cannot afford the boat. He said that's fine and spent 15 minutes with me answering all my questions. He even introduced me to one of the guys from the factory in Holland.

    They all were very professional and accommodating and I was grateful for the time they spent with me.

    Lastly, the Ospreys look incredible!

    Yea! As much as I detest negativity and am not known to be a complainer, let alone publicly, I hope my post early on was the catalyst for change. I also distain cynicism so no detailed comments about a new member/first time poster coming to defense. I hope you continue to post and I hope the brokers continue their excellent behavior shown to you. A beautiful boat (on the outside from what I could tell) and it deserves positive attention!

    Hey, Franz, I was typing when you posted but glad to see I'm not the only one with a raised eyebrow or two. Another clue was changing from the singular salesman to the fully inclusive "all", uh-oh, maybe I am being cynical. Signing off on this thread as it seems to have taken an even worse turn...

    You just happen to be at the show yesterday, then found this thread today? What an amazing coincidence! I'm glad to hear you had such a positive experience. MAYBE because your name isn't "Ross Kamm". MAYBE because you're name is Grant Henderson, a yacht broker formerly employed by 4 Yacht, a brokerage house with a less than stellar reputation. I'm amazed you were able to post such a legible response because apparently you can't read. Our rules clearly state if you pose as an independent 3rd party to endorse a product you will be exposed. This is fraud!

    I'm sure the Wajer is a nice boat, but now we have serious reservations about their business conduct, therefore this thread will be closed and we will not provide any further coverage for this builder. There are many fine boats in this category, most of which are built by people that don't engage in clandestine conduct to lure a buyer.

    A search for Wajer&Wajer Yachts puts this thread on the first page of Google's results...
