An extra €4/minute charge can further be applied to clients wishing to utilize the watercraft for any longer than 2 hours.
From Cannes to Lerins Islands, Wajer will control the entire service panel, a Dutch shipyard which for the most part assembles 37-38ft GRP boats in collaboration with Vripack. Two of Wajer’s models which will be used here, Wajer 37 and Wajer 38, can reach a max speed of 45 knots, and a cruising speed of 28 knots.
