Megayacht 150 Project Genesi By WIDER 150 is Launched: Following two years of planning and thousands of hours in construction, the WIDER 150 Project Genesi has met the ocean for the first time at the Wider Superyacht headquarters in Ancona, Italy. With all yard-based operations done, Project Genesi’s interior is about 90% completed.
WIDER have worked in close collaboration with their technical suppliers. Prior to the launch Emerson Automation performed eight weeks of testing on the vessel’s diesel electric system. Emerson’s technical specialists will return for sea trials to work alongside VETH Propulsion, suppliers of the propeller pods, Visedo, electric motor suppliers and EST Technologies, suppliers of the lithium power battery banks that are the heart of the vessel’s power system.
Tilli Antonelli, Wider founder and CEO believes that construction will be fully completed in 8 to 10 weeks, but indicates his company has no intention of rushing the process. Once testing has finished and the superyacht has reached the level of operational excellence that WIDER expects from her, the company will present her to the public in a series of events that it will announce in the near future.
Fulvio De Simoni in collaboration with Antonelli and his in-house design team created Project Genesi’s elegant aluminum profile. The vessel was conceived and created for someone who enjoys being out on the water, is looking for large outdoor spaces to do so and appreciates the highest levels of comfort. The WIDER 150 has more than 350 sqm of external areas and offers numerous relations spaces along with all the comforts a owner demands while at sea. The elegant, contemporary interior includes furniture and leather supplied by Poltrona Frau, along with large floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the main and upper deck lounge areas.
On the upper deck, guests will find a sky lounge and dining area with sliding doors to the exterior that hide away to allow for a full outdoor dining experience. The spacious main saloon on the main deck is divided into one area for relaxation and the other for formal dining. Forward of the saloon is the 75 sqm full-beam owners suite. Sliding doors allow it to be divided into two distinct areas that include an office/study and sleeping area with walk-in wardrobe, seat terrace and bathroom with large shower and custom wooden bathtub.
The WIDER 150’s beach club is larger than any other superyacht of comparable length. Its magnificent onboard oasis, and easy access to the sea provide plenty of room for sunbathing. Additionally, guests can enjoy a seawater swimming pool. The ship’s beach club is larger than any other boat of comparable length and has easy access to the sea and plenty of room for sunbathing. A 7m seawater further enhances the experience.
Powered by a diesel-electric propulsion system with Azimuthal pods, the WIDER 150 has four inline variable speed diesel generators combined with state-of-the-art WIDER power management system and the latest battery technology that serves the requirements of the ship at large that also reduces consumption while facilitating unprecedented range. 3,000nm is expected at the cruising speed of 13 knots, increasing to 4,200 nm at 11 knots.
