Winner of European Yacht of the Year 2023. The Oyster 495 is a new breed of 50 foot sailing yacht
Introducing the award-winning Oyster 495.
A luxury, bluewater cruiser with half a century of Oyster experience and innovation running through her every inch.
The new Oyster 495 is a 50 foot yacht designed for ease of use and shorthanded sailing.
She embodies all the learning, insights and innovative features from Oyster’s larger models, intelligently integrated into this benchmark 50 foot sailboat.
For new yacht sales and our service operation in the Americas, visit our offices in the heart of the US East coast sailing scene, Newport, Rhode Island. We would be delighted to help.
Equipped for adventure
A true liveaboard bluewater cruiser, equipped to take you anywhere in luxury, comfort and safety.
Displaying all the hallmarks of Oyster’s exquisite craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail, the exceptional build quality of the Oyster 495 means she is built to last a lifetime.
Every inch an Oyster, the new Oyster 495 features instantly recognisable design cues – deck saloon, seascape windows and flush decks, combined with exceptional sailing performance.
The latest collaboration between humphreys yacht design and our in-house design studio, the new 495 50 foot sailing yacht is an evolution of five decades of iconic oyster design cues..
Her clean hull lines and wide beam aft are the foundation for the outstanding space and capabilities of the Oyster 495. She incorporates many of our big yacht features in a compact 50 foot yacht. Instantly recognisable as an Oyster, the Oyster 495 features our pioneering deck saloon, protected cockpit and helm stations, wraparound and forward-opening saloon windows. Flush decks, signature triple vertical seascape windows, foredeck skyscape windows, a powerful plumb bow and extended bowsprit complete the look.
We were the first boat builder to create a truly ergonomically designed cockpit and helm positions, with sprayhood and optional bimini for additional protection. Details like the cockpit table, with optional built-in refrigerated drinks locker, that comfortably seats up to eight people, is just one of the many triumphs of Oyster design thinking.
The Oyster 495 consistently delivers powerful, responsive and rewarding performance in safety and comfort.
Nine knots is her happy place and her well-balanced, stable wide-beamed hull form gives you confidence to keep the sails up in almost any conditions. Twin rudders make her light and agile on the helm, offering fingertip control even in the most boisterous seas. Her low centre of gravity keel offers substantial displacement for enhanced stability and handling, and she moves easily in cruising trim. Carrying significant sail power, you are guaranteed consistently fast cruising speeds and the optional sprayhood and bimini provide excellent protection from the sun, whilst improving all-round comfort.
This 50 foot sailboat for sale offers the range of innovative automated sailing technology. This includes in-mast furling with push-button controls and B&G instruments, all operated from the helm positions, making her the perfect choice for couples or young families.
The Oyster 495 features lots of space to relax and share good times with friends and family.
Her wide beam offers unexpected returns in space, both above and below decks – something you will not find on any other 50 foot sailboat for sale. The beautifully styled centre cockpit is perfect for entertaining up to eight people for alfresco dining. The aft pushpit seats are a great place to see all the action under sail. The wide teak deck at the stern and flush foredeck offer generous entertaining and sunbathing spaces.
The transom houses an innovative, push-button operated, cassette boarding/bathing platform. A choice of subtle mood lighting and integrated audio speakers let you set the tone for entertaining guests under the stars.
BUILDING THE 495
Join double Olympic gold medallist, sailor and respected journalist, Shirley Robertson, as we build and sail the first Oyster 495.
New generation interiors feature modern styling, integrated technology and equipment for truly luxurious entertaining and living spaces.
Contemporary luxury and comfort
The oyster 495 benefits from our new generation luxury, contemporary interiors that elevates her above the best 50 foot yachts..
With four interior designed themes, 495’s interiors set a new standard in her class. The well-equipped, seaworthy, u-shaped galley, saloon and cabins are well-proportioned, comfortable and luxurious. Her wide beam aft offers unexpected space compared to any other 50 foot yacht for sale.
She is eminently practical, making her perfect for liveaboard adventures. Intelligent interior space planning, combining insights and the acclaimed craftsmanship from our larger yachts, makes use of every inch of hull volume. The tasteful choice of materials, fabrics and integrated technology throughout, along with modern styling, creates truly luxurious entertaining and living spaces. The impressive owner’s cabin, with its deep luxury mattress, has excellent headroom and signature triple seascape windows, creating an amazing feeling of space and light throughout the new Oyster 495. Our new mood lighting system creates a perfect interior environment.
Like all our yachts, the new Oyster 495 is handcrafted by master craftspeople with a meticulous attention to detail, and a deep sense of pride and passion.
The learnings of half a century of designing and building bluewater cruisers feed into every detail, and the insights of our owners, skippers and crew, sailors and our own team help fine-tune every aspect of the design and build. The result is a unique combination of design, technology, engineering and hand-crafted build quality. Beautiful hardwoods run throughout every inch of this exquisite 50 foot sailboat, in everything from hand-built furniture to intuitively placed grab rails. This focus on detail reveals itself in the beautiful, hand-crafted cabinetry and the easily accessible, carefully labelled cables and pipework that run behind the scenes to make maintenance tasks simple.
The Oyster 495 is a truly connected 50 foot yacht with all the latest technology you need to stay in touch, however remote your location.
Not only does it make her an ideal liveaboard yacht, but it also makes her a work-aboard yacht. Every system is chosen for its ruggedness and fitness for purpose. The chart table is a technology hub, featuring an optional, innovative, foldout, integrated PC; lift-top desk; plotter; VHF and SSB radios; power management; generator control; switchboard; and plenty of power sockets. Oyster’s proprietary digital switching system – Oyster Command™ – lets you monitor and control various systems over a digital network and touchscreen. Optional WIFI can be accessed through the latest satellite technology, or 4G/5G cellular antenna when close to onshore radio masts. Entertainment systems are seamlessly integrated, with a concealed saloon TV and audio running throughout the boat.
The joy of Oyster ownership

50 Foot Yacht: Guide to Buying New and Used Boats
Boat owners will often move into the 50 foot yacht range when looking to do more than simple day boating excursions. While still typically owner-operated, a 50 foot yacht provides increased flexibility with regards to living spaces and can offer a wide array of amenities that suite your tastes and needs while on the water.
When moving from a vessel in the 40 foot range up to the 50 foot range, owners can begin expecting three stateroom layouts. Moreover, newer products such as the Carver C52 offer full beam master bedrooms which provides luxurious space while resting at sea. Once an owner experiences the full beam master bedroom, it’s difficult to go back!
Also of note to existing and future owners of 50 foot yacht vessels, Sea Ray announced in 2018 that they will no longer be producing sport yacht and yacht models above 40 feet. The announcement means that a large brand is exiting this particular space. Boaters looking for a new yacht in this class, however, still have a number of excellent options as other manufacturers and brands have responded with increased investment in current and future models.
If you’re considering purchasing a new or used boat, there are a few things you might consider as you narrow your options. First, what type of boating do you intend to do? This will provide some helpful direction towards the type of yacht you’ll require. How much time do you plan to spend on the boat? How many people do you plan to take with you, and how many will need to be sleeping aboard the boat? How important is speed and do you have any size restrictions based on where you plan to keep your boat?
Having an idea regarding how much you want to spend on your yacht will also help the process. As you consider the financial components of the purchase, don’t forget to consider the costs associated with care and maintenance. Not only are these important elements of owning and operating a yacht, they will also pay off down the road during a re-sale process.
Choosing between a new and used yacht is also a major consideration. While a used vessel will cost less, buying new means you can have access to the latest technology and amenities while also making specific selections tailored to your tastes and desires.
If you are a first time owner, a few other things to keep in mind before purchasing are: Where do you plan to keep the boat? You’ll want this lined up prior to finalizing a purchase. Additionally, do you have insurance? Make sure you have insurance coverage finalized before taking possession of the boat (if you’re financing the boat, this is required).
These are some of the initial questions and considerations to think through when planning your next purchase. A TGYG professional can help guide you through additional questions to further narrow down the best options and help ensure you’re purchasing the right yacht for you and your family.
New 50 Foot Yacht Options
Tom George Yacht Group is able to provide a number of options for individuals seeking a new or used yacht in the 50 foot range. Here are a few of our featured new yacht options:
Carver C52 Coupe
The flagship of Carver’s new modern, state of the art fleet of cruising yachts is the very extraordinary C52 Coupe. The C52 incorporates the spacious layouts and the elegant design features that Carver accomplished on the C34, C37 and C43 coupes, and then took it to the next level in this remarkable yacht. The C52 Coupe is the crown jewel of the company’s recent design rejuvenation efforts, applying modern technology combined with over 60 years of experience to meet discerning yacht owners’ expectations. Click here to learn more about the Carver C52 Coupe .
Carver C52 Command Bridge
The remarkable C52 Command Bridge has the distinction of being the largest flybridge cruiser in Carver’s growing feet of newly designed contemporary yachts. The C52’s impressive framework allowed her designers to capitalize on the special benefits and styling advantages created by employing a striking axe bow and high freeboard architecture. The extra space and performance benefits of this design carried forward from the smaller C36 and C40 with even more dramatic results on the C52.

50 foot yacht: guide to buying your next yacht.
- June 3, 2021
Boat owners will often move into the 50 foot yacht range when looking to do more than simple day boating excursions. While still typically owner-operated, a 50 foot yacht provides increased flexibility with regards to living spaces and can offer a wide array of amenities that suit your tastes and needs while on the water.
When moving up into the 50 foot range, yacht owners can begin expecting three stateroom layouts. With new technology and yacht design processes, owners can expect an impressive combination of interior spaciousness without sacrificing a sporty and sleek look.
Many new models in this size range are leading to extraordinary interest via buyers. Models such as the new Sunseeker Manhattan 55 and the Riviera 5400 Sport Yacht are very hot on the market today due to its gorgeous design and style mixed with incredible spaciousness and functionality.
BUYING A 50 FOOT YACHT
If you’re considering purchasing a new or used yacht, there are a few things you might consider as you narrow your options. First, what is your ideal day on the water? This will provide some helpful direction towards the type of yacht you’ll require. How much time do you plan to spend on the boat? How many people do you plan to take with you, and how many will need to be sleeping aboard the boat? How important is speed and do you have any size restrictions based on where you plan to keep your boat?
Buyers in this size range of yacht often will need to decide if they prefer a flybridge design or an express style yacht. While some buyers can’t live without the additional deck which enables 360 degree views of the open water, some buyers prefer the simplicity and ease of use of an express style yacht (or just the sleek and sporty look that many provide).
Answers to these functional questions often leads to the consideration of a few different manufacturers and models. From there, the style and design of both the exterior and interior of the yacht will often speak to the buyer and move him or her toward a buying decision.
Having an idea regarding how much you want to spend on your yacht will also help the process. As you consider the financial components of the purchase, don’t forget to consider the costs associated with care and maintenance. Not only are these important elements of owning and operating a yacht, they will also pay off down the road during a resale process.
Choosing between a new and used yacht is also a major consideration. While a used vessel will cost less, buying new means you can have access to the latest technology and amenities while also making specific selections tailored to your tastes and style.
If you are a first time owner, a few other things to keep in mind before purchasing are: Where do you plan to keep the yacht? You’ll want this lined up prior to finalizing a purchase. Additionally, do you have insurance? Make sure you have insurance coverage finalized before taking possession of the boat (if you’re financing the yacht, this is required).
Lastly, as you consider a new 50 foot yacht purchase, it’s worth noting that there are other parties involved when a buyer purchases a yacht. The quality of the manufacturer of the yacht you purchase and the dealer from which you buy are crucial considerations.
Does the manufacturer have a proven track record of financial stability, innovation and production quality? Can you rely on your dealer both to assist in the initial transaction and over the coming years with respect to service and guidance? Ensuring your dealer has the resources and commitment to be there every step of the way during your yacht ownership is critical.
One Water Yacht Group is committed to providing a unique approach to both yacht sales and service. Backed with unprecedented financial strength and an unrivaled network of dealers and service centers through the eastern seaboard and Gulf coast, One Water Yacht Group is there for you wherever your new yacht may take you.

Average Yacht Prices | 40, 50, 60, 70, 100 feet + Helpful Examples
How much do yachts cost? Let’s look at yacht prices per size.
SELECT SIZE ⇩
Note: We will look at yachts that are a few years old. Very few people buy brand-new yachts as the price comes down a lot after only a few years.
How much is a small yacht? Let’s start at 40 feet length.
40 Foot Yacht Cost
A 40-foot yacht can be found used for around $200,000 and new models can cost as much as a million dollars. There are always lots of used yachts for sale around 40 feet in length, which makes them more attractive to first-time buyers.
Technically, a yacht begins at 23 feet. However, yachts that size will more often be referred to as boats.
A 40-foot yacht is a great option for looking for relative simplicity and plenty of comfort and capability. This size is great for day trips in the Caribbean dedicated to speed boating or simple cruising.
The size remains manageable, but the vessel can be updated with extra living spaces and amenities as desired, with a more affordable price than larger options.
The maintenance prices will remain lower as well.
Make sure you are considering the age of your yacht. Even if it is on the smaller end, it will be more expensive if it is new and custom-built to your wants.
Even if you think a 40-foot yacht is the cheapest option, these small factors make for a sliding price scale.
You might find that a smaller, new, custom yacht is more expensive than an older, simpler, larger yacht. One benefit of an older yacht is that it should have the improvements and equipment that make it comfortable to operate and will not have those additional costs.
For sailboat prices specifically, check out this article .
Our Pick: Viking 42 Convertible: Cruise and Fish (2014)
- Cushioned seats
- Underwater lights
- Flybridge fiberglass hard-top
- Recent engine and service
- Joystick control
- Cockpit shade with poles, freezer, and step-up box
- Custom chairs
- Coach roof overhang to provide shade
- home theater setup
- Freshwater wash area
- Cockpit freezer and drink box
- Forward-facing viewing windows in deckhouse
Here’s a great example of a yacht with differing ages and year models. It has twin diesel engines, 600 hp each, and cruise at 35 mph (pretty fast!).
Yacht Price Examples for Three Other 40-50 Foot
- 42-foot Grand Banks 42 Classic; trawler-cruiser style yacht; twin diesel, 350 hp each, cruising speed is 13 mph. Price: $370,000 for 2004; $124,500 for 1986; older ones for less
- 45-foot Sea Ray 450 Sundancer or Sedan Bridge; single or twin diesel, about 1,000 hp total; cruising speed about 26 mph Price: $472,000 for 2012 twin-engine
- 41-foot Back Cove Downeast; single diesel 715 hp; cruising speed is 26 mph Price: $619,000 for 2016
50 Foot Yacht Cost
50-foot yachts are normally owner-operated, so you wouldn’t need to pay for a crew. Now we are around the size of 2-bedroom yachts.
They can provide more living space giving the owner flexibility for more guests and making it a more permanent residential option. With more space comes the opportunity to install more amenities as well.
The biggest difference between the 40-foot vessel and the 50-foot is the accommodations.
Expect three-cabin layouts, which give plenty of space for rest. The opportunity to create guest rooms, owners’ suite, and entertainment spaces are better with these yachts.
Our Pick: Hatteras GT54 Convertible Sportfish
The price for the 2017 model of this used yacht starts at $2,249,000.
This yacht is 53′ 10″ long and weighs 75,000 pounds! It has twin diesel engines, 1,300 hp each, cruising speed of 35 mph.
It has a 1200-gallon fuel capacity with three staterooms. It sleeps up to 6 people, so it is perfect for entertaining without being so large to the point where maintenance becomes very difficult. It is known for its great propulsion rates and is very smooth and agile.
It specializes as a fishing boat but allows plenty of room for guests. In addition to the three staterooms, it has a large salon deck, a spacious galley, and plenty of indoor and outdoor seating.
Yacht Price Examples for Two Other 50 Foot
- 51-foot Azimut Magellano 50; express cruiser; twin diesel engines, 425 hp each, cruising speed 16 mph Price: $670,760 for 2013
- 52-foot Carver C52 Command Bridge; twin diesel engines, 600 hp each; cruising speed 18- 26 mph Price: $1,149,000 for 2017; $1,750,00 for 2021 with bow thrusters, gyro-stabilizer
How much is a large yacht? Let’s step up to 60 foot.
60 Foot Yacht Cost
Now we’re looking at 2-bedroom yacht prices. A yacht in this range approaches the upper end of the owner/operator criteria.
This means that owners need to decide whether they can handle this size yacht on their own or if they need to hire outside help from a crew.
If you’re thinking of buying a boat this size, the cost may not be an issue, but understand that adding crew members adds substantial extra expenses! Crew salaries start at around $3K /mth for junior members and $10K for captains and experienced crew members.
This size is great for longer travels beyond day trips and adds more and more space for extra amenities. Hosting guests becomes easier.
Here are some examples:
Our Pick: Hatteras M60
The average base price for this model is around $2,995,000.
The Hatteras M60 is great for someone who wants the luxury of a larger yacht but still wants to be an owner-operator. The deck’s layout below and above is spacious, with a large salon and a full master suite. It can be customized to order with hardwood floors or specific carpeting and amenities like TVs, a bar, a full kitchen, etc. It is a motor yacht, meant for pleasure cruising.

70 Foot Yacht Cost
We’re now looking at 3-bedroom yachts. Once you reach this size yacht, it is almost guaranteed you will need a crew to help operate it. A crewed yacht is very different from an owner-operated yacht.
This is just shy of the superyacht category, so if you settle on this size, know you are almost there!
As previously mentioned, as the yacht size gets larger, so do the number of factors that make the purchase more layered and complex.
When yachts reach this size, the interior layout begins to change more drastically. They often have a spacious main deck perfect for dining and entertaining guests, whereas below, the yacht would likely have four or more cabins and crew quarters.
With more rooms comes more cost and more opportunity to customize the space to make it your own.
Here are some great options for this size:
Our Pick: Hatteras GT70 Convertible Sportfish
The 2017 GT70 model runs around $4,500,000, but keep in mind the extra costs of maintenance, furnishing, and a cabin crew to help it run. It’s great for a long vacation and far-away destinations.
The GT70 convertible sportfish is known for its speed and agility, and high propulsion power. It has twin diesel engines, 1900 hp each; cruising speed over 30 mph.
It is 70′ 6″ with 2,140-gallon fuel capacity. The inside is lavish, with a galley, a huge salon, and five staterooms.

100 Foot Yacht Costs (and up):
You are officially in the superyacht range.
These yachts come in all styles and shapes, allowing for cruising along coastlines or focusing on watercraft and speed boating.
Since this is likely the peak size boat for practical use, you can expect a lot of additional costs for hiring a crew, maintenance, docking, as well as stocking your boat full of amenities.
You’re likely to spend the bulk of your costs furnishing this size boat as bigger yachts typically are sold without furniture. The previous owner will want to hold on to designer furniture and other expensive interior.

How Much is Yacht Insurance?
Insurance on a yacht is around 1% of the purchase price per year. It can go higher if you have lots of expensive designer furniture. This can add up over the years. It’s often cheaper to insure a sailing yacht but the price range is still within the 0.7-1.3%.
What Other Expenses Do Yacht Owners Face?
Harbor fees is another expense for yacht owners. It’s also a yearly fee that varies but as a rule of thumb, you can expect to pay around $100 per foot per year, depending on how popular the marina is. You will also have to be on a waitlist if you want a good location.
How Much Does a Luxury Yacht Cost?
A super yacht fall under the category of “luxury yachts” or “mega-yachts”.
The world’s largest private vessel belongs to the Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s Azzam. It is 590 feet long and costs $600 million to build!
It is outliers like these that increase the price average for yacht owners, perhaps scaring potential owners when they start their research.
As a luxury yacht price guide, however, we need to look at averages.
Currently, the average superyacht costs $275 million. This does not even account for maintenance costs, either.
Superyachts are large and luxurious, needing a professional crew to help them run. They are designed to emphasize comfort, speed, and longer expeditions – depending on the yacht builders.
They might have:
- swimming pools,
- water toys,
- diving and fishing poles,
- fully furnished rooms,
- helicopter landing pads,
- and smaller support vessels
Just to name a few amenities. They are truly the epitome of the elite.
What Size Boat is Considered a Yacht?
The normal yacht length starts at around 23 feet, and can extend hundreds of feet. If the boat meets 23 feet, it can be considered a yacht.
A boat does not need luxury features to be considered a yacht.
It can be minimal and stripped of the “extra” stuff to fall into the yacht category, so long as it meets the size and length criteria.
11 Things to Consider Before You Purchase
When making this purchase, the yacht size you buy needs to reflect what you hope to get out of the vessel.
Some important questions to ask yourself before you buy are:
- What does your perfect day on the water look like?
- How long will your average day on the water be?
- Will it be more boating/watercraft focused or long cruise focused?
- Will you use the yacht for fishing?
- Will you be on the yacht every day of the week or just on weekends?
- How many people do you hope to fit on the yacht?
- Do you plan to stay on the yacht overnight?
- Where will you dock the yacht?
- How much boating experience do you have?
- How fast do you want the yacht to go?
- How important is it to have extra amenities like furnished rooms, water toys, electronics, etc.?
These questions will guide you to understand the size you really need and will be able to realistically maintain versus what your most ideal yacht would look like.
When Do You Need a Full-Time Crew?
At length over 50 or 60 feet, you may need a full-time captain or crew.
A full-time crew person will be needed to keep all the varnished woodwork looking good and all the little things maintained.
Sometimes, you must be honest with yourself about what you want and what you actually need. Be self-aware about your abilities (or lack thereof) in taking care of a specific size yacht.
If you don’t know much about boats and navigation, you will need more help to use your vessel.
Hopefully, this comprehensive guide gives you a good starting point as you begin your yacht price research process.
Important Things to Consider As Well
Although there are many factors to consider when understanding a yacht’s prices, it is an exciting purchase nonetheless and should be enjoyed as much as possible.
At the end of your research, you’ll be the owner of a beautiful yacht you can use for leisure, cruising, sports craft, fishing, or all of the above.
Although this article is a good starting point, we would also recommend getting in touch with a yacht broker who can help you find your best fit , model, year, and the price is given your personal budget.
They are great sources of knowledge in addition to personal research.
Make sure you are as patient as possible in this process to make sure you are covering all your bases, but most importantly, enjoy the process!
Here’s How Much Yachts Cost on Average:
Yachts start around $300,000 for smaller 40-foot models and can go as high as several hundred million dollars for superyachts.
These are the main contributing factors to the price of a yacht:
- The size of the yacht
- The age of the yacht
- The brand and type of yacht
In general, the larger the yacht is, the more important the quality of the build becomes.
Also, potential owners need to understand the cruising speed and propulsion of different yachts.
The yacht type is also broken down into two categories:
- Mediterranean Style Open style expresses yacht with maximum space for sun, little-to-no shade on the deck.
- Hard-top express Semi-enclosed or fully-enclosed space on deck for the operator
- Flybridge yachts
An express yacht is often referred to interchangeably as an express cruiser or sports cruiser .
It has a single deck above the hull with a living space below.
They are much sleeker, too.
A flybridge yacht is often referred to as a sedan bridge or sport bridge, and it is typically used for fishing. It has additional space above the main deck.
Since the flybridge area has more space on the second deck, the main deck is normally made up of enclosed spaces and rooms.
It can have an open-air layout but can also have a hard-top.

This Sleek Aluminum 60-Foot Yacht Packs All the Punch of a Bigger, Faster Boat
Less than a year after unveiling the WiLder 60 , Wider has launched the first example of the new model.
The 60-footer, which the yard rather boldly describes as an "apogee of boating brilliance," is a mix between a chase boat, a performance cruiser, and a superyacht. Penned by Wider's in-house design team, the newcomer is said to combine thrill-a-minute performance with exquisite styling and exceptional finishing.
The model is smaller and, well, wilder than the big boats Wider has historically delivered, signaling the start of a new design era for the Italian yard. (Wider was recently acquired by marine heavyweight Marcello Maggi and is embarking on a rebrand.)
"The launch of the first WiLder 60 in Fano is not just a milestone for Wider and for the WiLder brand, but also represents a leap forward in what a 60-footer can offer and how can be built," Maggi said in a statement.
Built to her European owner's exacting specifications, the first example has a custom layout and bespoke finishes. The interior features two twin guest cabins amidship and a large owner's suite forward. Between the accommodation lies a sprawling salon with a designer galley and relaxation area. Wider says the decor hints at "elegant debauchery," with luxurious leathers contrasting sleek marbles and sumptuous fabrics.
Outside, there's a party deck forward and a social deck aft with sun pads and an alfresco dining area. The helm sits neatly at the center, with a windshield protecting seafarers from the elements. This speedster is sure to generate some spray, too.
Crafted entirely from lightweight aluminum, the sleek performance hull is engineered to slice through the waves. The 60 is equipped with a pair of 1,300 hp MAN V-8 engines that give it a cruising speed of 35 knots, a maximum speed of 40 knots, and a range of 325 nautical miles. The yacht also has a shallow draft of just over 3 feet, enabling cruising in shallow waters.
"Everything about the WiLder 60 is extraordinary, from her 40-knot performance to her totally custom layout and finish," adds Maggi. "This is superyacht-standard bespoke building but offered in an 18.9-meter all-aluminum model, with zero compromise on quality for zero-compromise owners. There's simply nothing else like her."
The inaugural hull was launched at Wider's Vision Hub in Fano, but the rest of the WiLder series will be built at its Superyacht Hub in Venice. There are already two more bespoke WiLder 60s under construction, too. Stay tuned.
