The first WIDER 150 hull has returned to the Wider Yachts' shipyard in Italy for interior customisation by her new owners, returning to the water under her new name, Bartali.
Launched in late October 2015, the 47m WIDER 150 left Ancona for her maiden voyage to the Cote d’Azur at the end of April 2016, touring the French and Italian Rivieras before displaying at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show where she was sold immediately afterwards.
Constructed entirely in aluminium, Bartali is a technologically advanced motoryacht, able to run in near silence throughout the night using only her batteries. She boasts a diesel-electric propulsion system combined with Azimuthal pods, making Wider the first shipyard to offer such a system in this size range.
On board, she also offers some of the largest spaces seen on superyachts of her size, including a 90sqm beach club with 7m indoor swimming pool and an impressive 75sqm master stateroom with additional sea terrace of 5.6m2. These features have resulted in ample media interest from prestigious industry publications, including the World Superyacht Awards, World Yachts Trophy and MYS/RINA.
The re-launch of M/Y Bartali follows the recent acquisition of the shipyard by Genting Hong Kong.
Michael Hackman, executive vice president of Genting Hong Kong and interim chairman of Wider said, “The team has worked very hard, working extra shift over [the] last couple of months to ensure that we complete the requested changes and hit the delivery date agreed with the new owner.
“It is our mandate to never compromise on workmanship and to deliver on our promises and I am very proud to be working with everyone involved. Bartali will be leaving in a couple of weeks and we will turn our attention to the Wider 165.”
Bartali will now move to the Cote d’Azur to meet her owners, who plan to move on board for the summer season.
Hull number two of the 150 range is now available for sale with delivery in 2019.
