Constructed entirely in aluminum to increase performance and allow for greater freedom and flexibility during the build process, the WIDER 150’s elegant silhouette was created by Fulvio De Simoni in collaboration with Tilli Antonelli and the in-house WIDER design team.
The remarkable design of the WIDER 150, which includes a 7m indoor/outdoor swimming pool, 75 square meter master stateroom, and her ability to run in near silence using only her batteries, has resulted in unprecedented levels of interest and a collection of awards from the most prestigious organizations, including the World Superyacht Awards, World Yachts trophy and RINA.
Winner, within the category “Displacement Motor Yacht under 500 GT, 42m to 46.9m” at the World Superyachts Awards, the 150’ outshone all competitors within her class and was additionally awarded a special commendation prize for Technology and Innovation, in recognition of the Diesel Electric Propulsion System combined with the intelligent layout and use of the forepeak for the four variable speed generators to create more usable guest areas in the mid ship.
