WIDER 150' Project Update

24th Mar 2014

Camper & Nicholsons International Sales Broker David Seal recently visited the WIDER shipyard in Ancona, Italy to inspect the progress being made on the WIDER 150'.

The WIDER 150' aluminium built superyacht is designed with diesel electric propulsion, a 32' custom tender, and an indoor/outdoor swimming pool.

Seal reports that significant progress has been made, as the hull and deck sections are nearly completed and work on the superstructure is about to start. The WIDER 150' has a number of innovative features that are already taking shape on board. The vessel's "engine room" is located in the bow to make space for a huge tender bay/swimming pool area aft. The technical room that shall house the LiPo batteries and the power management system is already completed, and the unmistakable shape of the swimming pool/tender bay is clearly visible in the aft section.

Elsewhere in the new state of the art shipyard, a magnificent showroom has been fitted out with samples of the finest materials for clients to choose from when selecting the interior decor of their yacht. Poltrona Frau have supplied some sumptuous leathers and provide a suitably inviting ambience for this important decision making process.

One of the most innovative features of this particular yacht is it's ability to house a 32' custom tender in the transom. This entire area of the vessel folds open to create a "WIDER beach", and the tender reverses out using a wet launch system. The tender bay then converts into a shaded swimming pool and spa area, surrounded by generous platforms that lead on to the sea.

Work on the WIDER 32' is now well underway at WIDER's other production facility near Fano, a 30 minute drive from Ancona. The 32' will be offered as a perfect tender for the 150' or as a stand alone sports cruiser with distinctive styling and outstanding performance. Available in a variety of colours it has an axe bow, walk-around foredecks for easy access, and comes complete with a cuddy cabin, head, and cooking area.

With so much activity in the WIDER shipyard, and news that a WIDER 165' has been sold too, it is no wonder that the WIDER 150' is attracting so much attention. The 150' is still available for sale, with a delivery date scheduled for Spring/Summer of 2015.
