The first WiLder 60 has been launched at Wider’s new shipyard in Fano, Italy, the Wider Vision Hub.
The craft is the first of Wider’s new brand, WiLder, which has been developed to bring custom superyacht-standard design and build to an 18.9-metre all-aluminium model with an high level of finishing.
The WiLder 60 has been designed by Wider Centro Stile, the in-house design team and the performance hull, was developed by the naval architecture team at Wider Engineering.
“The launch of the first WiLder 60 in Fano is not just a milestone for Wider and for the WiLder brand, but also represents a leap forward in what a 60-footer can offer and how can be built,” says Marcello Maggi, who heads W-Fin Sarl, the holding company that owns 100% of Wider equity. “Everything about the WiLder 60 is extraordinary, from her 40 knot performance to her totally custom layout and finish.”
“This is superyacht-standard bespoke building but offered in an 18.9 metre all-aluminium model, with zero compromise on quality for zero-compromise owners. There’s simply nothing else like her.”
The craft has been built for a European owner and her custom layout and finish has been completed to the owner’s specifications.
She is propelled by twin MAN V8 1300 engines, achieving a cruising speed of 35 knots with a maximum speed of 40 knots and a 325-nautical-mile range.
While the first WiLder 60 was launched at the Fano Vision Hub, where the testing of new models takes place, the WiLder series will be built at Wider’s Superyacht Hub in Venice, where two more bespoke WiLder 60s are already in build.
The WiLder 60 also marks Wider’s second significant milestone in 2024, following the launch of the WiderCat92, the brand’s first multihull.
