Italian yard Wider has recently revealed more details of its 39m Wider 130 project, which makes use of the firm’s signature diesel-electric propulsion system.
Michele Lubrano, head of design at Wider said, "A lot of thought has gone into every detail of her layout, so that as well as providing spacious guest areas that flow well from one space to the next, it will enable the crew to work efficiently and come and go discreetly through well-designed passageways.”
The Wider 130 will offer a diesel-electric propulsion system for an impressive maximum range of 2,600 nautical miles at 12 knots, and up to 3,400 nautical miles at 10 knots. A top speed of 14 knots is expected, while silent cruising is possible in zero-emissions mode.
Additionally, the Wider 130 will be able to sit at anchor and operate all of its systems on battery power alone for up to six hours.
The use of diesel-electric power means an enhanced engine room configuration, allowing guest accommodation to extend into space usually reserved for the engines. As such, the Wider 130 boasts accommodation for 12 guests in six staterooms, each with an en-suite bathroom, and accommodation for crew comprises of three twin cabins and a crew mess. The captain's cabin is above, adjacent to the wheelhouse.
On the main deck, a master stateroom stretches forward, with the owner's study found aft. A large terrace can be accessed from the stateroom, making the space perfect for enjoying an evening cocktail or breakfast on the water.
On the upper deck, sliding full-height windows can divide the wheelhouse and skylounge or open to create one large indoor/outdoor 85m2 sun deck.
A large seating area with a spa pool built into the superstructure, is found forward of the wheelhouse, as well as a tender garage with room for a five-metre tender and two Jet Skis that can be launched via a built-in crane.
