Since 1965, Wauquiez has been building efficient, oceangoing cruising yachts. The brand has come to be recognized for being comfortable, fast, reliable and beautifully styled. The specifications for Wauquiez designs have been based on efficient hull design, ergonomic deck layout, top of the line equipment and comfortable living spaces.
Wauquiez living spaces are designed for long stays, so all the functions expected of a great cruiser will be found on every yacht in the Wauquiez range: natural light, soft color shades, integrated quality equipment, extensive working and storage spaces and comfortable areas for relaxing whether sailing or at the mooring.
The Wauquiez engineering and design team work alongside notable naval architects, and take part in designing new models which incorporate the latest technology. Hulls are developed to optimize speed, both under sail and power. Deck fittings, equipment and rigging are sourced from the highest quality suppliers and brands.
Contemporary styling makes these yachts a head-turner in any port.
Wauquiez hulls are molded using bisphenolic resins for the external layers, to ensure long terms protection. They are built with a balsa sandwich using the infusion technique, for an optimum resin/fibre ratio. This process achieves great weight reduction, excellent rigidity and good sound and thermal insulation. The hull structure is also reinforced manually.
All lateral bulkheads are fiberglassed and bonded to the hull and deck, thus further reinforcing the overall structure of the yacht. The deck is fitted to the hull using polyurethane bonding and mechanical fastening.
