50m Wider Motor Yacht Cecilia Sold

14 September 2020• Written by Malcolm MacLean

The 49.98 metre motor yacht Cecilia, listed for sale by Camper & Nicholsons International, has been sold in an in-house deal.

Designed by Fulvio De Simoni, Cecilia was built in aluminium by Italian yard Wider to RINA class and delivered in 2019, going on to collect a coveted Neptune trophy at the 2019 World Superyacht Awards

Cecilia was asking €25,900,000

Accommodation is for 12 guests in five cabins comprising a main deck master suite, two VIP suites and two twin cabins with Pullman berths. All cabins aboard this yacht for sale come with entertainment centres, television screens and en suite bathroom facilities.

The main saloon is full of natural light thanks to sets of full-height windows. These windows can also open up to allow a breeze into the seating area, which features chocolate-brown leather sofas. The wooden floor creates a feeling of flow between the interior and the aft deck, out through broad glass doors. The upper saloon, with a games table and more seating, has a similar set-up with its own sliding doors. In both spaces there are surprises – in the main saloon, a glamorous bar is disguised as a cupboard, and in the upper saloon there is a small pantry space with a dumb waiter to the galley, again behind fold-away panelling.

Fold-out balconies are something of a signature on Cecilia. Balconies open up in the full-beam master cabin as well as in the gym and sauna area, both on the main deck. Each has two opening mechanisms: a window and, with that closed, a whole terrace, complete with teak decking that slides out to sit flush plus railings that pop up electrically.

This highest level is separated into three areas for sunbathing, conversation and dining, featuring a bar that contains a concealed barbecue, fridge and freezer. Cecilia's top speed is 14 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 5,400 nautical miles at 10 knots with power coming from two 712hp electric engines.

Cecilia was asking €25,900,000.
