After you see this vessel, I think you will agree that a Wendon boat is a solid boat, a beautiful boat – she is a yacht.
Based on the original highly successful Tollycraft designed hull, this boat offers luxury, ease of handling, and performance that must be experienced to be appreciated. Reliable propulsion and control systems matched to a solidly built and proven hull ensures that this is a seaworthy vessel with exceptional performance.
At a nominal length of 48 feet (54 feet overall) there is sufficiently large interior space for comfortable accommodations and entertaining.

Purchasing a yacht is a big expense - buy one through a broker who really cares!
Wendon Yachts are not well know on the east coast of the USA. But one short visit on board will immediately impress the most fastidious boat owner.
Designed for the luxury market and built in Sydney, British Columbia, Canada, she is a yacht that will be a delight to own.
"Two Marrtinis" has been owned by her current owner since she was built. One look and you will immediately see how beautifully she has been maintained.
A few word from the builder:
At Wendon Manufacturing Ltd. we take great pride in building fine boats. I started building boats some years ago for myself when I could not find what I wanted in the marketplace. After building a number of boats I found that I enjoyed producing quality boats and that there were potentially many customers who had the same set of values as I did. Thus, Wendon Manufacturing Ltd. was born.
To me, building a boat is not just an exercise in production. I derive great satisfaction in creating something of beauty and function, and am closely involved at all stages of the production. Those that work for me and with me understand my philosophy and also have a deep love and respect for boats.
I think you will agree that a Wendon boat is a solid boat, a beautiful boat – it is a yacht. I am sure you will take great pride and pleasure in owning a Wendon Yacht, just as I have had great pride and pleasure in building it.
Al Owen, President
The master helm resides in the raised Pilothouse and features full instrumentation, controls and displays. Big bold windows allow for the perfect panoramic view for captain and crew while underway.
Ample room is provided for charts and other reference material. Next to the Pilothouse table and settee a sturdy ladder/staircase rises to the Command Bridge - with a wrap-around nicely upholstered sectional sofa to comfortably seat seven guests. There is abundant stowage in the settee and the open bridge deck provides access to the aft deck and outer stowage lockers. Because of the complete enclosure it allows for an entirely protected space from the elements. This allows for year round enjoyment.
The fly-bridge on this vessel is particularly impressive. Because of the complete enclosure it allows for an entirely protected space from the elements. This allows for year round enjoyment. The seating wraps around the entire space and lots of storage is located underneath. It’s the perfect place to navigate and enjoy the view!
The on-board entertainment center includes VCR/Television and AM/FM/CD stereo with antenna system. The bright open salon is finished in-house in beautifully detailed, cherry wood decor, joinery and cabinetry and is much what you would expect in mega-yacht styling, airy and spacious. The darkly tinted windows let in plenty of light while also preserving privacy.
A spacious aft deck is accessed by a large sliding glass door from the main salon and leads to the swim deck boarding platform at dock level.
This breathtaking Galley is forward on the same level, but partially separated from the salon by a cherry paneled island and overhead china cabinet. The gourmet galley is fitted with a 7 cubic foot refrigerator/freezer, electric 3 burner ceramic range top, a full size convection/microwave oven and Corian solid surface counter tops and sink. Drawer and cabinet storage is abundant, and the quality is hard to compare. The cook can work efficiently and still be a part of the social scene.
The lower accommodations level is accessed via a delightful spiral staircase starboard of the main helm. At the foot of the staircase the VIP Stateroom is forward and the Master Stateroom is aft. The Master Stateroom berth is positioned about dead center of the yacht where the motion is least. Both staterooms feature island queen-size berths, efficient use of lighting, aromatic cedar lined closets and en-suites with showers and Vacuflush heads. The storage is impressive in each stateroom.
On modern yachts great expectations are placed on electrical systems. The systems must be safe, meet or exceed recognized standards, provide trouble-free operation, and have all the wire runs and connections neatly installed. Wendon Yachts is confident that electrical installation on its yachts sets a very high standard for craftsmanship and is the best you will find anywhere.
The 480 is an incredibly well built yacht with uncompromising quality.
The roomy cockpit is the main engine access. There is a hatch in the sole for access to the lazerette and the engine room below. The transom door is wide and leads down two steps to the large integrated swim deck.
The engine room - entered from the aft deck - is the heart of the Wendon 480. The generator provides ample power and is enclosed in a sound shield cabinet for a very quiet operation. Powered by twin 420 horsepower Caterpillar 3126 turbo diesels the 480 performance pilothouse yacht cruises comfortably at around 16 knots. The engine room clearly makes a statement of integrity for Wendon Yachts. When you inspect the perfection of the mechanical and electrical systems, you then understand the degree of excellence to which Wendon Yachts are constructed.
