Wider 150 motor yacht sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 47.05 metre Wider 150 motor yacht has been sold with Golan Levi at Swell Yachting in Israel introducing the buyer.
Built in aluminium by Italian yard Wider Yachts to a design by Fulvio de Simoni with Wider founder and CEO Tilli Antonelli, the Wider 150 was delivered earlier in 2016 and went on to win a coveted Neptune trophy at the 2016 World Superyacht Awards. In addition, the propulsion system was considered so advanced that it attracted a separate award for Technology and Innovation.
Accommodation is for up to 11 guests in five cabins consisting of a main-deck master suite with a sea terrace, two VIP suites and two standard cabins, one with a Pullman berth for a child and all have full en-suite facilities. In addition, there are quarters for nine crew.
Four gensets in the bow drive the boat via azimuthal pods, while also charging lithium polymer batteries to stern. These batteries, by Dutch company ESTechnologies, power the rest of the boat — or can propel her at modest speed with the generators off. Cruising at 10 knots overnight, with air-conditioning at 50 per cent and zero-speed stabilisers on, an owner could sleep with just 44.5dB(A) in his cabin, a level that sound comparison charts denote as “library”.
Because there is no engine room, the Wider 150 has a 90 square metre beach club complete with a protected seven metre saltwater swimming pool.
A range of 2,500 nautical miles is offered at a cruising speed of 13 knots, increasing to 4,700 nautical miles at 10 knots. She has a maximum speed of 14.1 knots and can also run at 5 knots when solely using batteries in Zero Emission Mode.
Of special note is the fact that Wider currently have the 165’ Cecilia in construction, available for sale at €30 million with delivery in time for summer 2017.
Lying in Ancona, Italy, the Wider 150 was asking €26.5 million and will now be renamed Bartali.
