Italian yacht builder Wider has announced that Wider 150, currently under construction in Ancona, has been named Genesi. The yacht is due for delivery in late September 2015.
The name Genesi, in Italian for Genesis, has been chosen because this represents a defining moment for the company founded in 2010 by Tilli Antonelli.
Antonelli has been involved in yacht building for the last 30 years and has delivered in excess of 200 yachts above 80ft although the Wider 150 is the largest to date.
However, Genesi will soon be surpassed by a 165ft model, also in construction in Ancona and due for delivery in mid 2016.
Genesi has been sold, however the Wider 150 is available with a delivery in under six months.
Constructed entirely in aluminium to increase performance and allow for greater freedom and flexibility during the build process, Genesi’s silhouette was created by Fulvio De Simoni in collaboration with Tilli Antonelli and the in-house Wider design team.
The yacht has been conceived to enhance the owner’s contact with the sea, while significantly increasing interior volumes compared to other motoryachts of a similar size.
Wider claims that Genesi provides a number of key features only usually found on larger vessels, which include, a large beach club, a 32ft tender, a state-of-the-art, full ECDIS bridge with push button system to give wrap around controls for the captain, diesel-electric propulsion combined with Azimuthal pods and Lithium Polymer batteries.
Headquartered in Castelvecchio di Monte Porzio (PU) in Italy Wider operates two separate facilities – totalling 12,500m2. The Express Cruiser range of composite yachts up to 42ft are built in Castelvecchio. The base for the Superyacht Division, where yachts up to 165 ft are manufactured in aluminium, is in Ancona, offering direct access to the sea.
