On the evening of the opening day of the 29th edition of the Monaco Yacht Show, the Italian nautical company WIDER presented their new projects. During a press conference in the beautiful Hotel Hermitage in Eze, Marcello Maggi, Philip Zepter and Tiziano Giovannetti revealed to the press what they were working on for months. This was their first official public appearance after the recent acquisition in July.

A 54m yacht's project, WIDER 180 has already started and the first cut of the hull is planned at the beginning of the next year with a delivery foreseen for February 2022...

Andrea Vallicelli & C Yacht Design designed clean and essential lines and create huge volumes for a yacht of this size. The beach area – a distinguishing feature of the WIDER yachts – opens up to 160m2, an incredible space to sunbath and relax, with a seawater swimming pool, a spa and a gym. Moreover, thanks to its Floating Launching System, the area can recover a 10m tender making entry and exit maneuvers considerably easier for the crew when launching.

WIDER 180 represents, ça va sans dire, a step further in the constant WIDER enhancement towards a 100% electric technology. The vessel is equipped with one main generator and an emergency one leading to a weight reduction and consequently less consumption, less maintenance expenses and, in general, minor costs.

"I am enthusiast of this project, either for the beautiful clean modern lines either for its green soul – affirms Marcello Maggi, WIDER President – which is something we strongly believe in. We opened the way of the electric propulsion applied on leisure superyachts and this is the right path to cover, without looking behind."

WIDER 135 is the second project unveiled by the Italian team, a 41m superyacht entirely constructed in aluminum.

Centro Stile WIDER, headed by Michele Lubrano Lobianco designed modern and dynamic lines, always maintaining the focus on the direct contact with the sea. WIDER 135 keeps the distinguishing feature of her predecessors, the aft, in fact, completely unfolds creating a 90m2 multi-use platform at water level, ideal for sunbathing and with an infinity pool that stands out in the middle.

"I firmly believe in this niche, – declares Maggi – we manage to offer the volumes and the comfort of a displacement yacht and the enjoyment at sea typical of an open boat."

Besides these, WIDER team is also working on other custom projects from 100' to 200' and on new versions of WIDER 32 and WIDER 42, which will be unveiled later on. WIDER will strongly focus on quality and innovation, rather than quantity. For this reason, there will no more than two yachts built at time, with dedicated teams and sheds.

Philip Zepter and Tiziano Giovannetti were also enthusiastic to intervene at the conference. The strength is combining variegated experiences coming from different industries and fields: Maggi is a shipbuilder since 1986, Giovannetti's expertise relies on finance and green energy and Zepter is a worldwide industrialist, in charge of many world-renowned companies.

"One of our mail goals – states Tiziano Giovannetti – is to achieve a complete electric propulsion system without the actual limitations in range and speed and we will do this in five years' time". "Last but not least – continues Philip Zepter – as we have already announced, WIDER will be listed in the stock exchange within three years and we are working hard to attain it".
