It could only be Venice-and its Boat Show-the perfect venue for the premiere of the new WiderCat 92(28.04 x 12 m). In fact, the Fano-based shipyard has its shipyard in Venice, and has decided to preview its new catamaran right here, in anticipation of its world debut scheduled for the upcoming Cannes Boat Show.The catamaran is born in the new era of Wider, controlled by Marcello Maggi, president of W-Fin Sarl, a holding company that owns 100 percent of the shipyard’s capital. This is what WiderCat 92 looks like.

The interior blends with the exterior

The WiderCat 92, a collaboration between Luca Dini Design and the Wider Style Center, is a new addition to the shipyard’s fleet. This 28-meter fiberglass yacht is the first example of an innovative series to be presented by the Marche-based shipyard, combining refined aesthetics, advanced functionality and cutting-edge technology.

WiderCat 92 offers seamless integration of outdoor and indoor spaces, providing a harmonious and welcoming environment. The master suite, located on the main deck, is a true oasis of relaxation, taking up almost half of the total deck space.

On board, where they can board up to 8 guests plus a crew of 4, we find two VIP cabins and a double guest cabin that both offer plenty of comfort and ample volume and are located on the lower deck, where we also find (at the furthest end of the hulls) crew cabins. In the aft area, on the other hand, is the tender garage (18 square meters), which converts into a large aft beach, and together with the fold-down bulkheads forms a generous 67-square-meter Beach Club.

On the main deck we find a large common area, with sofas and sundecks, communicating with the outside aft, where there is also a dining area, and a full kitchen. Further along is the large master suite with center bed, which benefits from plenty of space to provide relaxation for its guests and has a large separate private bathroom. The forward common area houses two other relaxation areas with sundecks, sofas and fold-down tables.

The upper deck is a huge flybridge equipped-both fore and aft-with common areas, tables, and sundecks to accommodate all occupants, both outside and inside. In the middle of the boat, however, is the large command post.

Hybrid propulsion

On board the WiderCat 92 a major innovation is the propulsion, which is delegated to a hybrid system. Technology already seen on the shipyard’s superyachts was used on this catamaran-more small-scale. Two motors with permanent magnet technology of 240 kW each are connected to the propellers, while power is produced by two 300kW Nanni Diesel variable speed generators. Energy is stored in 30 LiFePO4 (lithium iron phosphate) batteries managed by a state-of-the-art system that constantly monitors operating parameters.

The entire propulsion system provides a cruising speed of 12 knots, which reaches 15 knots thanks to Electric Boost. In power-saving mode, the speed is 8 knots with a range of more than 1,600 nautical miles. And at 6 knots of speed, it can reach up to 2,400 nautical miles thanks to the Wider Serial Hybrid System.

WiderCat 92: 100% green mode

The catamaran also includes ZEM – Zero Emission Mode. In this case, the Wider technology allows the boat to travel about 27 nautical miles at 6 knots in complete silence or provide a 12-hour range on battery power alone, without recharging, when at anchor. On sunny days, the 170 square meters of solar panels provide energy self-sufficiency for on-board services. Unused energy is in fact stored in batteries and used overnight.
