Castelvecchio (PU), Italy – 5th February 2017


We are extremely proud to announce that the WIDER 150 has been awarded two more prizes at the ShowBoats Design Awards held in Kitzbühel on Sunday 5th February. This brings the total number of awards for this exciting new yacht to eight, a remarkable achievement for a yard delivering their first superyacht. These latest awards were in the categories for "Best Exterior Design & Styling – Motor Yacht below 48m" and "Most Innovative Motor Yacht".

The event – attended by more than 300 of superyacht's senior figures, including most of the leading designers and heads of shipyards around the globe – honors the most creative, innovative and inspiring sailing and motor yachts delivered in the last year.

Amongst the many noteworthy features that were highlighted by the judging panel, the wings on the upper deck of the WIDER 150, allowing for full walk around whilst allowing a full beam sky lounge, put the WIDER ahead of the other finalists in the "Best Exterior Design & Styling" category.

Within the "Most Innovative motor yacht" category, the judges considered the WIDER 150 a clear winner and a real 'shapeshifter', declaring that "the corollary to the adage 'form follows function' is that when function changes, so must the form, and that is what the WIDER in-house design team have arranged throughout the yacht, allowing it to live bigger than its actual LOA.". The true innovation of the WIDER 150 is her diesel electric propulsion system which allows her to offer a completely new layout below deck. This frees up space to be used at the midship which can be given to the owner allowing this 47m yacht to include a 90m2 beach club with 7m swimming pool which doubles as a garage for a 32' tender, unique in this size range.

"WIDER started designing the project in late 2011 and wanted to do something a little bit different. Now that the 150 is delivered, it is extremely gratifying to receive the global recognition. Not only did we achieve our goal but also that this is appreciated by the market... anyone can do different, different and good is more difficult" quoted Jeremy Roche, Sales & Marketing Director of WIDER srl.
