Italian boatbuilder Wider Yachts has reported that construction of Wider 165, its largest project to date, progresses well.

Constructed entirely in aluminium, the 50m motoryacht is currently in build at Wider’s Ancona-based facility. The project is scheduled to be launched in late January 2017 with delivery set for May 2017.

Many of the features that make the Wder 165 to stand out from the crowd are already taking shape, the builder says.

All of the opening terraces and platforms have now been installed and components for the forward helicopter pad have arrived in the shipyard and are being fitted to the yacht.

The design of the Wider 165 features two opening terraces for the owner to use, one from the master stateroom’s study on the port side and the other in the gym to starboard.

The signature Wider beach, located at the aft section of the vessel, is also taking shape. Wider explains that this area for relaxation and easy access to the sea is similar to the Wider 150, but the builder says it has been taken one step further with the addition of a submarine for underwater adventures. This project also takes the wet launching system seen on the Wider 32 that converts into a 7m swimming pool.

 

At the bow, the plunge pool and seating area are taking shape. These amenities are situated forward of the wheelhouse and aft of the helicopter pad.

In addition, Wider reports that a very high level of acoustic insulation have been fitted to the lower deck, along with extensive anti-vibration measures. The Italian boatbuilder notes that this “remarkable level of dedication to eradicate noise and vibration from the yacht resulted in the Wider 150 receiving the first ever Class Annotation of 100/100 for RINA’s Comfort Class”.

Wider 165 was originally developed to fulfil an owner’s desire to equip his vessel with a submersible for underwater adventures.

The yacht was created by Fulvio De Simoni in collaboration with Tilli Antonelli and the in-house Wider design team.
