WIDER Yacht, based in Ancona, (founded in 2010), is an avant-garde company that has a unique and particular design focus: ergonomic and organic designs that fuse to create a very futuristic style. WIDER is a yard that has pioneered hybrid propulsion applied to superyachts, and specialises in the design and construction of exclusive yachts
The company’s philosophy is based on a deep-rooted love for the sea, a desire to go beyond the limits and the passion for innovation.
WIDER excels in building yachts that give much more to their owners, in every way. The yard has created not just a new concept of vessel but a new category of yachts.
The company produces high-quality yachts and superyachts that combine high level performance with low consumption, always guaranteeing great flexibility and plenty of room to move, conceived to reflect the style of contemporary customers. Every WIDER yacht emphasises contact with the marine environment, providing plenty of room to relax close to the water: expandable cockpits on board the Express Cruisers and Superyachts with the most spacious beach clubs in the category. The first WIDER 42 was presented to the public in 2011 stop it was an exceptional model that allowed the yard to distinguish itself and spread its innovative spirit. The patented system that allows the cockpit to extend over the sea is an avant-garde element from the yard as well as their core business linked to projects for yachts with electric propulsion. In 2014 came the customisable day cruiser WIDER 32, and from the first Wider 42 the range Grew, with the Wider 150 being launched in October 2015.
In May 2018 came the launch of the WIDER 165, recently recognised at the Boat International World Superyacht Awards in the category “Displacement motor yacht between 300 and 499GT – 48m and above”.
WIDER: the range
In the design of superyachts, indispensable conditions for WIDER are the intelligent use of space on board and the search for solutions that improve systems integration, reduce emissions and the use of fuel, while ensuring maintenance is easy.
The model that began the new WIDER range and from which later models were developed is the WIDER 150. Made entirely in aluminium, the silhouette of the WIDER 150 is designed by Fulvio De Simoni and was created in collaboration with the WIDER design team. Right from the beginning the project had a precise aim: to intensify contact with the sea and, at the same time, to seek ingenious solutions for creating space, increasing the living space on board compared with what other superyachts of the same size had so far offered. What is unique about the WIDER 150 is also that it succeeds in offering a large number of exclusive pluses that are generally found only in larger superyachts, for example:
The Beach Club of almost 90 m² houses an interior salt water swimming pool, something unique in its category
The 32 foot tender is a design day cruiser designed for reaching shallow water bays in the maximum comfort
The 75 m² master suite includes a 5.6 m² terrace facing the sea, an amount of space that has no equal
An elegant covered saloon forward offers complete privacy for relaxing with guests
The avant-garde bridge, a perfect mix of design and technology, has instruments and monitors placed in a semicircle around the Captain’s station
The diesel electric propulsion combined with azimuth pods: WIDER is the 1st yard to offer all the benefits of a complete diesel electric system in a yacht of this size
It can use just the energy of the batteries for a whole night or while the Beach Club is being used, eliminating noise, vibrations and exhaust fumes.
The WIDER 150 was launched in October 2015. After having completed several sea trials before its final fitting out, it left Ancona for its first voyage towards the Costa Azzurra towards the end of April 2016. After going on tour between the Costa Azzurra and Italy, it was presented at the Monaco Yacht Show at the end of September 2016 and sold immediately afterwards. A very successful yacht!
