The name “GENESI” (Italian for Genesis) has been chosen for the Wider 150. The 46 m (151 ft) luxury motor yacht WIDER 150 GENESI, was delivered in 2015 by Wider S.R.L.; her exterior was designed by Wider Engineering, with an interior from Ideaeitalia. With a hull in CARBON/EPOXY, the Semi Displacement WIDER 150 GENESI has a range of 3000 nm at a cruising speed of 13 knots, and reaches a top speed of 15 knots.
WIDER 150 GENESI can accommodate 10 guests in 5 cabins and is operated by a crew of 7.
AN EVOLUTION OF DESIGN
Constructed entirely in aluminum, the elegant profile of the WIDER 150 – Project GENESI – was created by designer Fulvio De Simoni in collaboration with WIDER Founder and CEO, Tilli Antonelli and the in-house WIDER design team. Conceived for someone who enjoys life on the water, is looking for the large outdoor spaces to do so, demands all of the indoor comforts they require from a home and an engineering package which allows them to appreciate the entire yacht in the highest levels of comfort.
The WIDER 150 boasts more than 350m2 of external areas, offering numerous relaxation spaces in direct connection to the sea for the owner and guests to enjoy. Most noteworthy of these, are:
SPECTACULAR BEACH CLUB
The WIDER 150’s beach club measuring 90m² is larger than any other boat of comparable length. It provides a magnificent onboard oasis, easy access to the sea, and plenty room for sunbathing. The marine experience is further enhanced by a covered 7m seawater swimming pool. Thanks to its floating system, the stern of the WIDER 150 can be converted into a spacious garage ideal for carrying the WIDER 32. The beach club’s seawater pool opens up at the transom to allow the tender to be driven in. This system makes entry and exit maneuvers considerably easier for the crew.
A large sun deck fitted with a full bar, barbecue and spa, makes the ideal spot to entertain guests or sunbathe while enjoying 360° views.
In front of the wheelhouse, is a concealed foredeck lounge, hidden beneath a watertight hatch on the coach roof; the hatch raises to reveal a spacious entertaining area, complete with sofas and flat-screen TV – perfect as an additional and very private relaxation space for cocktails, movies oreven alfresco dining.
Inside, the WIDER 150 offers all of the comforts an owner demands at home while at sea.
The elegant, contemporary interior includes furniture and leather supplied by Poltrona Frau and fabrics by Gentili Mosconi Home with large floor to ceiling windows throughout the main and upper deck lounge areas permitting sunlight to flood in and provide panoramic views of the sea.
Forward of the saloon is the 75m² full-beam owner’s suite that can also be split into two distinct areas, separated by sliding doors, an office / study and sleeping quarters including walk-in wardrobe, a sizeable 5.6m² sea terrace, as well as bathroom with 3m shower and custom made wooden bathtub.
The guest accommodation is equally generous meaning the WIDER 150 is as well suited for charter as for the owner’s friends; this consists of four en-suite cabins, 2 VIP’s and 2 standard, one of the latter also including a Pullman berth for a child.
The WIDER 150 is built to comply with the latest standards (LY3) for crew. Four twin cabins, a sizeable cabin for the captain next to the wheelhouse, and an ample crew mess. A central corridor gives direct access to the engine room, located at the furthest point from the guest accommodation.
