Wider Yachts reveals design of new 122 superyacht
Published: Tuesday, 20 August 2013
Like her sister ship which iscurrently in build and has just passed its tank test, the Wider 150, this new 120-foot semi-displacement all–aluminium yacht will be powered by a diesel-electric hybrid propulsion system. This will allow for a differently configured layout, where the smaller engine compartment will be placed forward freeing the aft space for more spacious owner and guest areas.
This propulsion option gives far better fuel economy as well as less noise and reduced exhaust pollution. A large on-board fuel capacity (7,900 gallons) provides an ocean-crossing range of some 4,000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 10 knots.
The master deck, as usual, is on the main deck located forward and connects with a private lounge with its own terrace. On the lower deck are four spacious staterooms each with an en-suite and four crew cabins in the forward section.
The transom door unfolds to create a swim platform and a small beach club. Where the engine room would typically be is the tender garage with a side-launching door. Jet skis and other water toys are housed on the foredeck.
