WIDER 165 SETS NEW RECORDS WITH RINA
Monaco Yacht Show provided a glamorous setting for RINA to present some ground breaking awards to WIDER for the construction quality of their 165' superyacht "Cecilia".
The first award related to the remarkable lack of noise and vibration achieved on the yacht, a trademark of the advanced serial hybrid propulsion system that WIDER have become known for. For the first time ever, RINA have awarded a perfect 100,100...
...in their Comfort Class for two consecutive yachts: the first one being the WIDER 150. This COMF (Y) 100,100 annotation is a testimony not only to the benefits of WIDER's propulsion system, but also a tribute to the engineering and craftsmanship that has made WIDER world leaders in their class.
In addition to the Comfort Class Award, RINA also bestowed upon WIDER 165 the RINA Platinum Green Plus Award. This Award is recognition of the fact that the 165' superyacht "Cecilia" surpasses every other yacht in her class for her green credentials. Fuel consumption and the impact of her construction upon the environment were taken into careful consideration. This Award too was given for the second time to WIDER, and is an important step in cementing her position as a revolutionary yacht builder for the 21st Century.
And, as the icing on the cake, RINA awarded us with the RINA AWARD 2018, given to the best and "greenest" yacht of the year!
