WIDER starts construction on new WIDER 125

WIDER is set to start construction of new WIDER 125 after the success of WIDER 150 at the autumn European shows.

The project is commissioned by a Northern European client and delivery will be in late spring of 2019.

Exterior designer Fulvio De Simoni plans to retain the distinctive WIDER style with an all-aluminium vessel and diesel electric technology.

The W125 will have a gym and study for the owner, a unique feature for a yacht of this size. A speed of 14 knots is expected but can solely run on batteries in zero emission mode.

“I am delighted that we came to an agreement to build the WIDER 125” says Tilli Antonelli, founder and CEO of WIDER SRL. – “The client is an experienced charter customer who knows how his family want to use and enjoy their yacht.  We have been talking for over a year and the client has looked at the market in detail and decided to build with WIDER. We are grateful to him for showing his faith in us to build his first yacht…Many thanks also go to Georges Damonte from Damonte Yacht Consulting for his assistance in securing the build.”
