Wider has unveiled a partnership with brokerage firm Northrop & Johnson to sell two of their models – the 51.86 metre WIDER 170 and the 64 metre WIDER 210 – with Joe Foggia managing the exclusive sales rights for the models in North America.
Marcello Maggi, who heads up W-Fin Sarl, the holding company that owns 100% of Wider equity, has said they look forward to working with Northrop & Johnson, saying “we have found their unrivalled expertise in yacht sales and management, coupled with a deep reach both within the industry and with potential buyers, makes them an excellent match for the vision we have for our superyacht division. Their work is unsurpassed in the industry, and a major reason why we decided to work so closely with them.”
The agreement mirrors one Wider recently entered with MarineMax, which focuses on their catamaran division. The partnership has been described as a “new milestone,” with Maggi commenting the match “will catapult Wider a step ahead” in their ambitious plans.
Both the WIDER 210 and WIDER 170 are hybrid and feature a zero-emission mode where the yacht can cruise, moor or rest using only battery packs or two generators. Both models can house 14 guests over seven cabins with the 210 featuring capacity for up to 17 crew while the 170 has room for nine.
It comes after the yard announced the steel had been cut on Wider’s 72m Moonflower superyacht in October.Read More/Marcello Maggi on the revival of Wider Yachts and its move into the multihull market
