Although our newsletter is released once a month to cover updates to activities within the WIDER world, we have, on occasion, released a Logbook Extra to cover a particularly special event…. And this is the case again now.
In the last edition of the Logbook, a couple of weeks ago, I mentioned how busy we had been during the recent shows in Cannes and Monaco. I am now delighted to confirm that we have signed an agreement with a customer to build our new, exciting WIDER 125. I am confident that she will be without equal in her size range!
The build will start in the New Year and she will be delivered in the Spring of 2019.
Many thanks go, of course, to all my team for their efforts but, as I have told them already, the hard work starts now.
I am currently in Ft. Lauderdale attending the Boat Show from the 3rd to the 7th of November so, if you would like to hear about more of the details, please come to see us at the Superyacht Pavilion, stand no. 664.
SUCCESSFUL SHOWS CULMINATE IN SALE OF NEW WIDER125
After the successful premiere of the WIDER 150 at the Autumn European shows, WIDER are delighted to confirm that they will start construction of a new WIDER 125, commissioned by a Northern European client at the recent Monaco yacht show. Delivery will be in late spring of 2019. WIDER have confirmed that they have the capacity to build a second unit in parallel and are currently in advanced discussions with several interested parties. More information will be released in due course.
WThe all-aluminium vessel, with exterior design by Fulvio De Simoni will retain the distinctive WIDER style of the W150 and the W165 as well as the same diesel electric technology. The WIDER 125 will include a full beam master stateroom on the main deck with a large opening terrace together with owner’s study and gym (or sixth cabin, depending on personal preference. This is a unique feature for yachts of this size and will be particularly appealing should the owner decide to place on the charter market). Guests will be treated to four lavish staterooms that stretch further aft than on a traditional motor yacht of this size, well into the area usually reserved for an engine room. A range of 2,600 nm is expected at 12 knots, increasing to 3,400 nm at the economical speed of 10 knots. The yacht has a top speed of 14 knots and can also run solely using batteries in Zero Emission Mode.
