The WIDER 150 is distinctive in many ways apart from the built-in ecological spirit. One characteristic is the ability to offer a number of features, the privilege of which is usually exclusive to larger superyachts.
From its launch, this 46-metre superyacht built entirely in aluminium, had a specific purpose: to create a new dimension in layouts intensifying contact with the sea. Her ability to do this and offer larger living spaces in a yacht of this size is attributable, above all, to her serial hybrid propulsion.
This propulsion also allows complete and thoughtful, if you prefer silent, enjoyment of the sea, in the knowledge that any emissions are minimized, if not down to zero.
THE WIDER BEACH CLUB:
Thanks to its 90 m2 surface at water level, the Beach Club of the WIDER 150 is the largest in this category of yachts.
SERIAL HYBRID PROPULSION:
The WIDER 150 is equipped with a serial hybrid propulsion system and azimuthal thrusters, a smart system that controls and manages the electric power generated by the four generators and stored in batteries. The power produced runs the yacht and all the hotel functions bringing about many advantages, from greatly reduced consumption to highly increasing the cruising range.
The traditional engine room has been replaced by two separate units: the Power Generator Room in the bow and the Technical Room in the stern where the lithium polymer (LiPo) batteries are housed. This frees up one of the largest parts of the hull, so more spacious guest cabins can be designed at the heart, and the most stable zone, of the yacht.
The entire propulsion system is completely modular: the WIDER 150 can be run exclusively by the batteries in Zero Emission Mode (ZEM) or by activating up to four in-line diesel generators. All the on-board power sources are controlled by the Power Management System (PMS), a smart system that is fully integrated with the yacht that handles the power coming from shore, the generators and the battery packs. The PMS then distributes the power to the hotel functions, the propulsion system and the battery recharge system as required. The exceptional partner for this project is Nidec Industrial Solutions, a market leader as well as supplier of the entire PMS.
CABINS AND LIVING AREAS:
Wide floor-to-ceiling windows surround the lounge on the main deck allowing natural light to pleasantly illuminate the living areas while providing magnificent views of the yacht’s surroundings.
On the upper deck, the Sky Lounge has an area with sliding doors that when retracted create the feeling of open but sheltered alfresco dining at a table able to accommodate the full complement. The upper deck also has two balconies creating the type of space that you would usually only expect on yachts of over 60 metres.
On the main deck towards the stern, there is a wide external entertaining area and an incredibly spacious internal lounge divided into two. In front of the lounge, towards the bow, the full-width owner’s suite boasts a 5.6m2 balcony overlooking the sea. This suite too can be divided into two areas by sliding doors.
Guests are accommodated in four large cabins with private bathrooms at their disposal, two of which are VIP cabins while the other two also feature pull-down beds for children. The elegance and the contemporary style of the interiors are enriched by the use of Poltrona Frau hides. This company has created and perfected a unique 21-step leather crafting method where natural pieno fiore fine grain leather is dyed with ingrained colour so that in case of a scratch, the underlying material is not exposed.
The WIDER 150 meets the most recent standards (LY3) for crew accommodation.
A large cabin on the upper deck adjacent to the wheelhouse is reserved for the captain. Crew members have four twin cabins in the lower deck, along with the spacious crew mess. These cabins are on either side of a central corridor with direct access to the engine room in the bow and away from guest cabins.
Thanks to the Floating Launching System, the stern of the WIDER 150 is an ideal hangar for a designer tender like the WIDER 32.
With the tender deployed, this space becomes a large salt water pool housed below the main deck. In addition, the floating launching system makes exit and entry manoeuvres with the tender simple for the crew.
The WIDER 150 offers 14 knots as its maximum speed. At a cruising speed of 13 knots, the yacht is estimated to have a range of 2,500 nautical miles or alternatively up to 4,700 at an eco-speed of 10 knots. The yacht has the ability to run just on batteries in Zero Emission Mode with silent cruising at a reduced speed of 5 knots. This is the ideal selection for short trips or in order to cast off early in the morning ensuring the utmost quiet with no generators needing to be started.
