Wider Yachts has announced that the new Wider 150 superyacht currently under construction at their facilities in Ancona, Italy, has been named Genesi, and is on track for a late September delivery. The completion of the Wider 150 marks an important milestone for Wider as it is the largest vessel to be completed by the shipyard to date. She is currently available for sale.
Amongst her notable features on board is an expansive beach club measuring 90 sqm, an interior 7 metre seawater swimming pool, a 32’ rigid tender, a large foredeck with an opening roof, and a state-of-the-art, full ECDIS bridge with push button system to give wrap around controls for the Captain. The owner’s suite is also particularly impressive, with 75 sqm of space and an exclusive sea terrace.
She will be powered by a diesel-electric propulsion system combined with Azimuthal pods and the latest technology in Lithium polymer battery power. This arrangement is widely used on much larger yachts and commercial vessels, and offers numerous benefits including increased reliability, fuel efficiency, greater range, reduced noise, vibration and maintenance, a shallow draft, greater flexibility of interior layout and 12 hours of complete silence at anchor using battery power alone. She will have a top speed of 20 knots and a cruising speed of 13 knots.
Though the 150’ will be the largest Wider superyacht to be completed upon her delivery, she will soon be surpassed by the Wider 165’ model, which is also currently under construction and expected to be delivered in mid 2016.
