Sold in December last year, the 47.05-metre superyacht recently christened Bartali has been delivered to her new Canadian owner. Built by the Italian yard Wider and completed in 2016, Bartalifeatures exterior design from Fulvio de Simoni, with her contemporary interior coming from IdeaItalia, who worked together with the Wider in-house design team.
Having completed works at the Ancona based shipyard to customise the yacht to her new owner’s specific wishes, including the addition of a new walk-in-wardrobe in the master stateroom and changes to the galley, Bartali will soon depart to the Cote D’Azur where her new owners plan to move aboard for the season.
“This is a significant milestone in the history of the shipyard,” says Michael Hackman, Executive Vice President - Marine Operations with Genting Hong Kong and interim Chairman of Wider. “The Wider 150 represents a number of firsts both to us and the yachting industry as a whole. We believe the Diesel Electric propulsion system installed on board – the first time this has been done on a yacht of this size – is the future of yachting. The multiple benefits this system offers clients, among them low noise and vibration but equally the reduced carbon footprint thanks to her remarkable fuel efficiency is increasingly appealing to customers. The automotive market has transformed client’s outlook, a growing segment of the market is looking for increasingly green solutions.”
At the shipyard, work continues with the construction of the Wider 165, project Cecilia, which remains on schedule for an early 2018 launch. The Wider 165 is listed for sale at an asking price of €30,000,000.
