Wider has completed the first sea trials of the Wider 150 superyacht, an all-aluminium ship with a hybrid diesel-electric propulsion system. Designed by Fulvio de Simoni and overseen by Tilli Antonelli, the 150-foot yacht functioned smoothly throughout each test and achieved its forecasted goals. Wider 150 reached a top speed of 15 knots in diesel-electric mode and utilized new technology to reduce sound and vibrations to a minuscule level. The battery banks that comprise the heart of the superyacht’s power system were carefully scrutinized. Supplied by ESTechnologies in the Netherlands, the batteries used in the Wider 150’s zero-emission mode were tested over several days to ensure the yacht is capable of running exclusively on battery and generator power. Once the remaining sea trials have been completed, the yacht will be presented to the public. Wider 150 is currently listed for around $28 million. (wider-yachts.com
