Wider Yachts launches 19m WiLder 60 chase boat

12 February 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Italian shipyard Wider Yachts has launched its first 18.6-metre WiLder 60 in Fano, Italy. Designed as a crossover between a chase boat and performance cruiser, the all-aluminium vessel was built entirely in-house to the European client's "exacting specifications".

"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," said Marcello Maggi, who led the group of partners in the acquisition of Wider Yachts.

The new vessel is fully customisable with a slender profile and Wider's signature engineering, reaching speeds of up to 40 knots. The aluminium hull ensures the day cruiser can stand up to all kinds of seafaring conditions while a shallow one-metre draught means it can operate in close proximity to the beach.

Accommodation is across two twin cabins amidships, plus a forward owner's cabin with centreline double and en suite. The saloon is equipped with a "designer galley cabinet" and lounge space with television and sofa seating. Interior details include beige leathers, marbles and "gloss finishes" for an aesthetic of "elegant debauchery", according to the shipyard. Up top, the WiLder 60 features a forward party deck, aft social deck with sunpads and al fresco dining area and a starboard helm.

"The WiLder 60 is a seductress for those owners who want to experience the very best in everything – design, quality, and wild fun on the water," added Maggi. "This is tailor-made taken to the next level in a model we think is transformative in its size bracket. The WiLder 60 was wild as a concept – the sort of challenge that Wider loves to embrace – but this first launch proves that we can build something beyond an owner’s wildest dreams, even at 19 metres."

The news comes after Wider's first multihull, Acali, was launched last month in Fano. Two more WiLder 60s are also currently in build at the shipyard's facilities in Venice.
