Wide berth

Wider 165 Cecilia, the largest of the Wider superyacht range, makes her official debut at Monaco Yacht Show.

26 September 2018


Constructed entirely in aluminum, the elegant profile of the Wider 165 was created by the in-house Wider design team in collaboration with Italprojects by Fulvio De Simoni and the naval architect Sydac by Lelio Falletta. Designed to accommodate the owner’s long wish-list of toys, both inside and out, the Wider 165 will satisfy the desires of the most adventurous, with helipad included.

The interior layout, designed by IdeaeItalia in conjunction with the owner’s architect, is packed with more stand out features including a generous study with terrace on the port side, private gym with terrace on the starboard side, a sauna room as well as a spacious and light owner’s cabin and ensuite bathroom.

On the foredeck, the helicopter-landing pad, unique to our range, and circular seating areas set into the superstructure, forward of a large Jacuzzi tub, offer a versatile space that will double as generous dance floor for fun evenings afloat.


The stand out feature across the Wider range is the inclusion of a generous Beach Club: the Wider 165 has taken this a step further to allow extra space which can be customised to suit a client’s needs – and includes options for submarine storage, dive room or sauna/spa.

The beating heart of the Wider 165’ project is its serial hybrid propulsion system combined with a 544kWh Lithium polymer battery bank and Azimuthal pods, which guarantees hugely reduced fuel consumption and exceptionally low levels of noise and vibration.

Four inline variable speed diesel generators, controlled by the state-of-the-art Wider power management system and the latest battery technology, serve the hotel and propulsion requirements of the vessel.

The traditional engine room has been replaced by a Power Generator Room, located in the bow.

This leaves the mid ship of the vessel free for larger, more comfortable guest cabins located in the most stable part of the yacht. This arrangement is only possible because of the use of the serial hybrid propulsion system combined with Azimuthal pods, which receive power through an electric cable unlike traditional propulsion systems which have shafts. In addition to space gains, this combination together with Lithium polymer battery banks affords significant advantages compared to conventional shaft-line propulsion.
