New Model: Wider 150

Founded in 2010 it is an interesting short story so far that of Wider and it's founder Tilli Antonelli. who reaches a new stop and starts a new departure with the new 150.  The first Wider 150 is something very different of what is usually found in the market thanks to its innovative diesel electric propulsion system and a forward engine room.  The first Wider 150 thinks ship like propulsion in a smaller 46 meter package. If this this has been done in small size ships I do not know, but for a yacht of this size it is surely a first. But apart the technical innovation the Wider 150 is also a sleek looking super yacht with substance, with looks by Fulvio de Simoni, full displacement bulbous hull shape, aluminum 5093 construction, and a range of 4200 nautical miles at 11 knots.
