Tom Brady Trades Up With His New $6M Wajer 77 Yacht

NFL legend and 7-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady made a surprise appearance, via video link, at Dutch boat-builder Wajer’s announcement of its latest luxury yacht in the Netherlands last week. And confirmed he will be one of the first to take delivery of the new 77-foot offshore vessel. He said “I enjoyed the waters of New England, but when we moved to Tampa, with its beautiful bay, I said to myself, ‘I need a boat,’”. He goes on to day “I love what (Wajer Managing Director) Dries Wajer is doing. When we first started working together, I was able to try-out a Wajer 38, then I got my Wajer 55S, and now I’m looking forward to continuing my ‘captainship’ on a Wajer 77…which Dries tells me I’ll get before the end of the year.” The Tampa Buccaneer Brady famously skippered his $2 million Wajer 55S during the water-parade Super Bowl celebration in Tampa after the team’s victory in February. And more famously made a stunning pass completion of the hefty Lombardi Trophy from his boat’s stern to the bow of the boat that team mate and tight-end Rob Gronkowski was aboard. The live-prototype Wajer 77 build is dubbed “The World is Not Enough;” not only the name of the 1999 Bond film, but also the motto of James Bond’s family per the Sir Ian Fleming novels. And there is a certain secret-agent international mystique to the vessel, to be sure. Significantly longer and beamier than the previous Wajer 55 flagship, while the new 77 also rises higher from the water line, her lines are low, swept back and elegantly aggressive. Some Q Branch-worthy technology includes an auto-calibrating anchor drop that calculates the length of chain needed, a hybrid fender system that can quickly inflate/deflate bumpers for easier stowage, a water-cooled under-deck temperature system so your bare feet don’t get too toasty, and an automatic wheelhouse roof that can expand, contract, and front-elevate to allow more air flow into the cockpit. Accommodations include a 16-foot, 5-inch wide Master Suite mid-ship, a bow Junior Suite with a double bed, and a port-side guest cabin with a queen-size and single bed. All suites have their own ensuite and showers. A crew cabin sleeps two. Expect a fully-equipped galley and a below-deck work area, and expect it all to arrive with a modern, light- and dark-wood blend on a minimalist gleaming white interior design approach any luxury boutique hotel would envy (and 7 feet to 7 feet, 9 inches of headroom other boaters will envy). Spacious circular deck seating, bow deck sun pads, large sofas and an aft al fresco dining area provide ample relaxation for even large groups of passengers. And expect ample stowage for seabobs to electric surfboards, diving to kite boarding gear, and more to join the Williams 325 Jet Tender for water fun off-board. Brady said he plans to call his new Wajer 77 yacht “Viva a Vida,”.
