Wider is currently working on the hull of the new Wider 165, their largest superyacht project to date. The Wider 165 was developed using the Wider 150, which is also under construction, as a starting point.
The beating heart of the Wider 165’ project is its diesel/electric propulsion system, which guarantees hugely reduced fuel consumption and nearly unprecedented range. This system has made it possible to replace the traditional Engine Room with a Power Generator Room and a Technical Room with LiPo battery pack located into the bow; the resulting space in the finest area of the ship therefore can be used to create larger, more comfortable guest cabins.
The Wider 165’ is expected to launch in 2016.
