Italian shipyard Wider Yachts has recently released the following renderings of the Wider 165’ Project Cecilia. Currently under construction at the yard’s facilities in Ancona, the 50 metre superyacht has been designed by Fulvio de Simoni, and is constructed with an aluminium hull and superstructure. Upon completion, Project Cecilia will be the largest superyacht to come from the Wider yard, taking the title from the Wider 150, of which the first hull, the 45 metre Genesi, was launched in October last year.
The 165’ has been developed for an owner who had several specific requests, including the addition of a submersible vessel on board to explore the depths of the ocean. Amongst her stand out features include a touch-and-go helipad, diesel electric propulsion, a wide beach club area and an interior seawater swimming pool.
Though based upon a similar design brief to her predecessor, Cecilia will display several key differences with the Wider 150’. This includes the aforementioned hosting of a submersible vessel, as well as a T-Top with crystal sliding doors to enable the owner to be able to use the sun deck in all weathers, and the altered foredeck that incorporates two circular tables and seating areas together with a hot tub.
In regards to her interior, she showcases bright and airy spaces combined with warm colours, linear and clean design and a balance of wood, glass and leather together with several details linked to oriental culture. She accommodates guests over five luxurious staterooms, including a full beam owner’s suite complete with a private terrace overlooking the sea and four en-suite cabins on the lower deck. A crew of 11 are also accommodated for on board.
In regards to her performance, she has a maximum speed of 15 knots, and a cruising speed of 13 knots. At an economical cruising speed of 10 knots, she has an impressive range of 5,600 nm.
Founder of Wider Yachts, Tilli Antonelli, comments on the 165’, stating: “Our new flagship will represent the finest marriage of aesthetics, innovation and cutting-edge technology that the yachting world has seen so far.” Project Cecilia is scheduled to be delivered in a year’s time.
