Wider Yachts and MarineMax have recently cemented a partnership that will be highly beneficial for both brands. The American dealer will now be the exclusive North American distributor for Wider's production line of catamarans.

Wider's catamaran division already has five units of the new WiderCat92 under way, all primed to splash in 2023 and 2024 — two of them for the American market. All of the models will have the much-celebrated Wider Serial Hybrid Propulsion System, which makes them highly efficient and eco-friendly. Importantly, distribution of the catamaran division at Wider will be separate from the company's superyacht division, which includes the recently unveiled full custom project Moonflower 72 as well as some exciting upcoming projects.

"We are thrilled to be working with MarineMax," says Marcello Maggi, who heads up W-Fin Sarl, the holding Company that owns 100% of Wider equity. "Their vast network of dealerships and deep experience with yachting and yachtsmen is unsurpassed in the American market. We believe that MarineMax will be able to make Wider a household name among American boaters. Furthermore, we were very impressed by MarineMax's service capabilities as well as their aftercare, including after-sales assistance and spare-part services. We are confident that MarineMax will keep our catamarans running smoothly, and our customers happy, for many years to come."

MarineMax Chief Revenue Officer Chuck Cashman comments, "Wider's cutting-edge technologies and luxurious Italian design style strengthen our ability to provide the best customer experience to boat and yacht owners around the world. Their unique offering fits perfectly in our brand lineup, and I know our customers, and team members for that matter, will be excited to get some hands-on interactions with the new WiderCat 92."

With over 100 locations, MarineMax is one of the largest boat dealerships in the world. It wields unrivaled heft in the realm of boat sales, and makes for an excellent match with Wider, which is an industry leader in building ultra-luxe, green-friendly yachts unlike any the world has ever seen before.
