First WiderCat 92 catamaran Acali launched in Fano

15 January 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Wider Yachts' first multihull offering has hit the water in Fano, Italy. Christened Acali, outfitting on the WiderCat 92 will continue prior to sea trials and commissioning.

The 28-metre composite catamaran has been designed in collaboration with Luca Dini and built to RINA class. Highlights include a main deck dedicated to the owner, expansive beach club and hybrid propulsion system. 

Five models have already been sold less than a year after the WiderCat 92 was first presented

The WiderCat 92 offers large interior volumes granted by her 12-metre beam. The main deck, in particular, is dedicated to the owner's cabin and made complete with a private foredeck lounge that occupies nearly half of the total space. Accommodation is for eight guests across four cabins and a crew of four.

Equipped with a transom hatch, the tender garage can transform into a spacious swim platform, while the 67-square-metre beach club benefits from fold-down bulwarks, direct access to the VIP cabin and discreet water toy storage (including space for a 4.5-metre tender and Jet Ski).

"The WiderCat 92 is a collective masterpiece, a synthesis of vision, craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology," said Marcello Maggi, head of W-Fin Sarl (the holding company that owns 100 per cent of Wider equity). "Each designer, engineer and craftsman has poured their passion into this endeavour. As we celebrate this achievement, I have full confidence that, just as in our previous milestones, theWiderCat 92 will set a new standard in the industry."

The two hulls were last sighted en route to Fano in January 2023

The WiderCat 92 is also powered by a hybrid propulsion system that works in tandem with 150-square-metre solar panels to power both the propulsion system and hotel load. While at anchor, any unused power is sent to recharge the battery pack for consumption thanks to a dedicated Battery Management System. For limited periods, the yacht can run in full-electric mode for silent and vibration-free cruising. 

This hybrid system will allow for a top speed of 15 knots with a cruising range of 3,000 nautical miles at a speed of eight knots.
