47.05m motoryacht Genesis has recently been delivered to her new owner under the new name of M/Y Bartali following customisation works at the Wider shipyard in Ancona.
Built by the Italian yard in 2016, Bartali was sold to her new owner in December last year.
She features exterior design from Fulvio de Simoni, with a contemporary interior by IdeaItalia, who worked together with the in-house design team at Wider.
Work to customise the superyacht to her new owner’s specifications took place at the Ancona shipyard, with new features including a walk-in-wardrobe in the master stateroom, along with changes to the galley.
Bartali will depart for the Côte d’Azur soon, where her new owners will move aboard for the season.
Michael Hackman, executive vice president of marine operations with Genting Hong Kong and interim chairman of Wider commented, “This is a significant milestone in the history of the shipyard.
“The Wider 150 represents a number of firsts both to us and the yachting industry as a whole. We believe the diesel electric propulsion system installed on board – the first time this has been done on a yacht of this size – is the future of yachting. The multiple benefits this system offers clients, among them low noise and vibration, but equally the reduced carbon footprint thanks to her remarkable fuel efficiency, is increasingly appealing to customers
“The automotive market has transformed client’s outlook, a growing segment of the market is looking for increasingly green solutions.”
At the shipyard work is continuing with the construction of the latest Wider 165, project Cecilia, which remains on schedule for an early 2018 launch. She is listed for sale at an asking price of €30,000,000.
