Wider has announced that hull #1 of the Wider 150 has been sold to a Canadian client. The sale was assisted by Golan Levi from Swell Yachting.

Wider 150 made her world debut at the Monaco yacht Show in September. The yacht will return to the shipyard for minor works to tweak the yacht’s interior to the new owner’s specific requirements. Christened ‘Bartali’, she will be cruising the Mediterranean in the spring.

Commenting on the sale, Wider CEO Tilli Antonelli, says: “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.”

Wider currently has the 165ft Cecilia under construction. She is available for sale at €30m, with delivery in time for summer 2017.

The sale of hull #1 of Wider 150 follows on from the recent sale of the first Wider 125 and construction will begin in February. In addition, the shipyard has confirmed capacity to build a second unit in parallel, and is currently in advanced discussions with several interested parties. More information will be released in due course.

Constructed entirely in aluminium, the Wider 150 was created by Fulvio De Simoni in collaboration with Tilli Antonelli and the in-house Wider design team.

The design features a 7m indoor/outdoor swimming pool and a 75sq m master stateroom. She is equipped with Wider’s Diesel Electric Propulsion System and has the ability to run in near silence using only batteries.
