Wider Logbook Extra – December 2016


Dear Readers,

This is the second time in a month that we have needed to send you a Logbook Extra with additional exciting news about our progress… and this one is especially thrilling and satisfying for me personally.

The first child is always particularly special, even if we love all of our subsequent children equally dearly, and this is just how I feel about the yachts we build. It is therefore with genuine delight and no little pride that I announce that we have now concluded the sale of the WIDER 150, the first of our superyachts to be delivered.

Of course, work doesn’t stop here: we are pushing ahead with the plans for the recently sold WIDER 125, which starts construction in the New Year, and the production of the 165’, which is due to be launched in late spring and is available for sale.

Given how much is to be done we will be working up until Christmas so if you would like to make a late visit to the yard, please don’t hesitate to let me or my sales team know.

Kindest Regards,



Hot on the heels of the recent sale of the first WIDER 125, the Italian shipyard based in Ancona is delighted to announce the sale of their larger WIDER 150 just two months after her world premiere at the Monaco Yacht Show in late September. The Canadian customer was assisted in the purchase by Golan Levi from Swell Yachting.

“We are thrilled that our new line of unique yachts are getting the recognition we believe they deserve… the new owner was attracted to the range of features we have included on board, particularly the diesel electric propulsion system which offers such a quiet mode of operation…something the new owners value extremely highly,” commented Tilli Antonelli, CEO & Founder of WIDER srl.. A range of 2,600 nm is expected at 12 knots, increasing to 3,400 nm at the economical speed of 10 knots. The yacht has a top speed of 14 knots and can also run solely using batteries in Zero Emission Mode.

The WIDER 150 will return to the shipyard for minor works to tweak the yacht’s interior to the new owner’s specific requirements and will be cruising the Mediterranean in the spring, newly christened M/Y Bartali.

“The new owners are passionate about water sports… They loved the design and layout of the WIDER 150 but I believe the huge owner’s tender in the beach club was the final element that won them over to WIDER,” added Antonelli.

WIDER currently have the 165’ Cecilia in construction, available for sale at 30m euro, with delivery in time for summer 2017. Construction of hull #1 of the WIDER 125 will begin in February. WIDER have confirmed that they have the capacity to build a second unit in parallel, and are currently in advanced discussions with several interested parties. More information will be released in due course.

Additional information on the WIDER 150

Constructed entirely in aluminum to increase performance and allow for greater freedom and flexibility during the build process, the WIDER 150’s elegant silhouette was created by Fulvio De Simoni in collaboration with Tilli Antonelli and the in-house WIDER design team.

The remarkable design of the WIDER 150, which includes a 7m indoor/outdoor swimming pool, 75 square meter master stateroom, and her ability to run in near silence using only her batteries, has resulted in unprecedented levels of interest and a collection of awards from the most prestigious organizations, including the World Superyacht Awards, World Yachts trophy and RINA.
