WIDER 165 “CECILIA” APPROACHES COMPLETION
Tremendous progress has been made on the WIDER 165 following her launch in May. "Cecilia" has begun the list of sea trials which will continue throughout next month to ensure that every system on board is in perfect working order when she is sold to her future new owner.
From the Veth pods propelling the yacht to maximum speed of 14.1 knots in vibration free silence, to her Lithium Polymer battery banks charged by 4 variable speed generators, every system and every piece of machinery is being tested and re-tested. The eye catching 49m super yacht has been conceived to house a submarine in the transom, and so load tests were carried out on the crane earlier this week. Upon request this area can be converted for use as a sauna and spa area. The final jewels that complete the crown will be the various items of exclusive loose furniture, to be embarked and positioned in the next days.
Her smaller sister ship WIDER 150 "Bartali" raised the bar of yacht owner's expectations when she debuted at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2016. "Cecilia" is expected to repeat and even exceed this performance as she offers even more features and benefits from a fresh and contemporary interior that will undoubtedly surprise and thrill attendees to the 2018 Monaco Yacht Show where she is scheduled to attend.
