Working progress at Wider shipyard
All-aluminum Wider 165 Cecilia
Constructed entirely in aluminum, the elegant profile of the Wider 165 was created by the in-house Wider design team in collaboration with Italian yacht designer Fulvio De Simoni. Project Cecilia is scheduled to be launched during the Spring with final delivery in time for the summer of 2018. With the scheduled launch approaching fast, shipyards emphasis has been focused on the installation and testing of the technical systems to ensure that the commissioning time after the yacht is splashed is kept to a minimum.
The electric, zero speed stabilisers supplied by Naiad – the same model that were successfully installed on the Wider 150 – which ensure a stable platform in all conditions have also been installed and tested. Teak decking has been installed to all areas and will receive a final sanding just before launch. On the inside, there has been noteworthy progress to the furniture installations across all decks, both in guest and crew areas. Although still requiring some imagination to understand the full beauty, the elegance of the contemporary Italian design by IdeaeItalia is beginning to shine.
