Wider launches GENESI
Wider have launched their largest superyacht to date, Genesi, from their headquarters in Ancona, Italy.
“The extra time in the main shed allowed us to push ahead with the interior… it is now 90% complete” said Juan Balaguer, COO, Wider. “I have launched dozens of yachts in my career but have never done so with this level of completion to the interior outfitting… this will save us time in the final commissioning.”
“It is enormously satisfying to see “GENESI” in the water for the first time” said Tilli Antonelli, Wider Founder and CEO. “But now we have the important task of checking that everything is working to the same high standards that we have set ourselves in every other aspect of the construction process. We believe that this can be done in 8-10 weeks but will not rush anything if it means compromising on the quality of the finished yacht…We will make sure that she is 110% finished before unveiling her in full to the market.”
Genesi was created by Fulvio De Simoni in collaboration with Antonelli and the in-house WIDER design team. The contemporary interior features furniture and leather supplied by Poltrona Frau and fabrics by Gentili Mosconi Home.
The traditional engine room has been replaced by two separate units; the Power Generator Room in the bow and a Technical Room with LiPo (Lithium polymer) battery pack in the stern. This leaves the heart of the vessel free for larger, more comfortable guest cabins located in the most stable part of the yacht.
Genesi is listed for sale at €26,000,000.
