New-build Wider 125 superyacht sold
by Malcolm Maclean
Italian yard Wider has sold its first 38.02 metre Wider 125 motor yacht to a Northern European client introduced by broker Georges Damonte at Damonte Yacht Consulting.
To be built in aluminium to RINA class standards with exterior design by Fulvio De Simoni, the first Wider 125 is due for delivery in late Spring 2019. Accommodation will be for 12 guests in five cabins. Taking advantage of the yacht's high bow, the main-deck master suite is forward while four guest suites are located on the lower deck, each with en-suite bathroom facilities. In addition, there will be quarters for crew in three twin cabins and a crew mess with the captain's cabin above, adjacent to the wheelhouse.
Floor-to-ceiling windows on either side of the main saloon will create a particularly inviting and open space while, on the upper deck, sliding full-height windows can divide the bridge deck aft and skylounge, or open to create one indoor/outdoor sundeck.
Importantly, the Wider 125 also benefits from the same diesel electric technology as her larger cousins in the range, allowing for greater volume and better located guest suites than on other similar sized yachts.
A range of 2,600 nautical miles is expected at 12 knots, increasing to 3,400 nautical miles at the economical speed of 10 knots. The yacht has a top speed of 14 knots and can also run solely on batteries when in zero emission mode, meaning no vibrations, no noise and no smoke.
The Italian yard has confirmed that it has the capacity to build a second unit in parallel and discussions with several interested parties are currently at an advanced stage.
