Imaginative and solid. Disruptive in any approach, from design to engineering.
Ever since its foundation, Wider has been all about visionary ideas and projects aimed at expanding the frontier of the yachting industry.

Architects of
the future

Ideas change products.
Vision changes everything.

Since 2010, a history of creative
and lateral thinking.

Today, Wider is one of the most innovative yacht design atelier in the world, led by a management team committed to grow as a company by constantly questioning the status quo, and by challenging unsustainable and unfutureable ways of designing yachts.


From its first appearance in the sector, with motorized yacht docks and a lateral approach to comfort, to the first hybrid yacht projects in the nautical world, Wider has always been a naturally evolutive brand.

Wider was founded in Castelvecchio di Monteporzio, Italy. Its first project, the Wider 42, an innovative and high-performance 13m yacht with apatented system to open up the cockpit, immediately received worldwide recognition.

The first Wider 42 was launched. The yacht was featured in the prestigious ADI Design Index, and won both the AIM Marine Group Editor’s Choice Awards and the Robb Report Best of the Best.

The project for the Wider 150, the first superyacht from the shipyard and the first one to incorporate serial hybrid propulsion with azimuthal thrusters in the whole nautical world, was officially presented.

Wider opened the Ancona shipyard, equipped specifically to build superyachts, and started the production of the first Wider 150.

Wider presented its second superyacht, the Wider 165, and the Wider 32, an Express Cruiser in its own right as well as a tender for the Wider superyachts. It immediately won the AIM Marine Group Editor’s Choice Awards.

The first Wider 150 was launched and presented at the Monaco Yacht Show, where she was visited by Prince Albert II of Monaco. She became the first motor yacht in history to receive a perfect COMF (Y) 100/100 score.

The Wider 165 was launched. She received general acclaim around the world, raising the standards of the Wider 150 and winning the prestigious RINA Comfort Class (COMF (Y) 100,100), the RINA Green Plus (Platinum) and the World Superyacht Award “Displacement Motor Yachts Below 500GT – 48m and above”.

Wider is acquired by Marcello Maggi. Is the beginning of a new chapter in the history of the shipyard. At the 2019 edition of the Monaco Yacht Show Wider presented the projects for two new superyachts, the Wider 180 and the Wider 135.

Wider presented the WiderCat 92, the 28-meter future-conscious, sun-powered, limitless-inspired catamaran, the first multihull in the history of the shipyard.

First announced in May 2022 followed by the keel laying three months later, new renders of the MOONFLOWER 72 project by Nauta Design currently under construction at Wider Superyacht Hub in Porto Marghera, Venice.

Wider launches a new project conceived and designed by the in-house Centro Stile Wider, that borrows from visionary and adds provocateur: WiLder, the shipyard’s alter-ego conceived to indulge the wilder side of lovers of superyachts and the sea. A sign of Wider’s urge to create and will to conquer new territories, WiLder’s first creation will be a daring 18.6-metre, all-aluminium thrill machine that serves as its own hybrid between chase boat and performance cruiser.
