Italian boatbuilder Wider has partnered with luxury broker Northrop & Johnson to sell two of its superyachts, a 170ft and a 210ft, that currently make up the builder’s superyacht range.

Northrop & Johnson, specifically Joe Foggia as yacht broker, will have exclusive sales and management rights for the two models in North America.

“We look forward to working with Northrop & Johnson in North America,” says Marcello Maggi, who heads W-Fin Sarl, the holding company that owns 100 per cent of Wider equity. “We have found that 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.

“Furthermore, this agreement mirrors the one that Wider recently entered into with MarineMax, though that partnership is focused on the builder’s catamaran division.”

The ‘vision’ Maggi mentions includes Wider’s new facility in Venice, which is dedicated to the production of superyachts. Construction also began this month on a new 11,000 square-metre shipyard in Fano, on Italy’s Adriatic coast.

All design and engineering for the yachts is done in-house by the Centro Stile Wider.
