The quiet Italian: Inside the Wider 150 superyacht

A hushed and compact diesel-electric propulsion system allowed Italian yard Wider to maximise the spectacular living spaces on its 46 metre Wider 150  and then open them up using super-slick technology.

On a placid grey swell off Ancona, the Wider 150 cuts through the mist towards her tender. Her approach feels increasingly strange, until at close range the omission becomes easier to identify – noise.

A familiar hum is absent; the only sound is the languid slosh of the Adriatic against aluminium hull. When the Wider 150 turns her flank and slides hushedly past the smaller boat, like some futuristic ghost ship, it feels distinctly as if the captain is showing off.

The 46 metre Wider  150, the first superyacht from the Italian brand, boasts a sculptural exterior by Fulvio De Simoni , a clever layout by Ideaeitalia , but it is her diesel-electric power system that’s liable to drive a modest skipper to bravado.

Four gensets in the bow drive the boat via azimuthal pods, while also charging lithium polymer batteries to stern. These batteries, by Dutch company ESTechnologies, power the rest of the boat – or can propel her at modest speed with the generators off.

Some benefits of this set-up are obvious, even from a nearby tender. She is quiet – really, really quiet – even in her generator room. Cruising at 10 knots overnight, with air-conditioning at 50 per cent and zero-speed stabilisers on, an owner could snooze with just 44.5dB(A) in his cabin, a level that sound comparison charts denote as “library”. And it is even lower in guest cabins.

From the bridge, the generators two decks below are almost inaudible, despite the fact they are driving the yacht at 11 knots and charging the batteries. With the generators off, the batteries can supply the entire hotel system on board for up to eight hours or drive the Wider 150 at five knots for six hours — ideal for night-time navigation — in what most human beings would call silence.

Vibration is also low — levels were measured at less than 1mm per second in all areas — even with generators on. The only evidence that you are moving is the seascape sliding past the windows. “When the man came from RINA to test the noise and vibration on board he shook one of his machines to check it was working,” says Tilli Antonelli, founder and CEO of Wider, pointing to the motionless surface in a glass of orange juice.

Antonelli, who guided every aspect of the design, enhanced the hush by mounting the generators and ensuring the cables that stretch the length of the boat are amply muffled, as well as by taking an enthusiastic attitude towards insulation generally (there are about 35 tonnes of it on board).

Because the generators are variable speed and can operate independently, the Wider 150 uses only the fuel she needs at that moment, so consumption is only about 70 litres at 11 knots. On battery power alone, she produces zero emissions. The propulsion – no shafts, just electric cables that link to electric motors positioned above the pods – also had some wild benefits for the layout.

With no traditional engine room to consider, the Wider 150 could be designed around the features the team loved, rather than trying to squeeze these features into a traditional yacht layout. As Alessio Battistini, co-founder of Ideaeitalia, puts it, “the beach club and the owner
apartments were the ideas the project developed from”.

This was an exciting prospect for Antonelli. He began his yachting career as a professional sailor, then founded the Pershing brand, which became part of the Ferretti Group in the early 1990s.

He left in 2010 to try something fresh. “It’s something we wanted to do, to be a bit different from the other players in the market,” he says. “You have to excite the market, you have to offer the opportunity to buy something different from everyone else.”

The Wider 150's tender garage is certainly something different. Float-in garages have been done before, albeit on much larger boats – Lürssen ’s 126.19 metre explorer Octopus , for example, or CRN’s 58.2 metre J’Ade . But on the Wider 150, the absence of a traditional engine room allows a dramatic change in scale.

“Our aim was to make the most of the electric solution, which allowed us to move the [generator] room to the bow and take advantage of the large and valuable volumes of the stern area,” says De Simoni. The resulting dock takes up around a third of the lower deck’s length and allows this 46 metre yacht to accommodate a 9.6 metre Wider 32 that, complete with dining table, mini-galley, cabin and sunbathing area, is more dayboat than tender.

And that’s the point. With a modest draught of 1.98 metres and a shallow pod propulsion system by Dutch manufacturer Veth, the Wider 150 can cruise serenely between shallow anchorages, while guests who want to explore at a faster pace can jump on the 32 and spend a day zipping about at 37 knots.

Back on the mothership, comfortably still owing to five gyroscopic stabilisers, those who remain on board get their own alfresco fun. With the “tender” out, a carbon section stowed in the stern hatch is fitted over part of the tender dock, while sections of hull fold down to port and stern. The whole lot is covered with Paola Lenti outdoor carpet.

The result is a 90 square metre beach club – Wider says it is the biggest available on any yacht available between 44 and 47 metres – complete with a protected seven metre saltwater swimming pool (the forward part of the dock).

When the adventurers return, the beach club is dismantled, the tender slides in, the water drains out and the 32 rests on a base that is moulded to the shape of its hull, “like a foot in a shoe”, as Antonelli puts it. Then the Wider 150 can pick up and carry on for quite some time – she has a range of 4,800 nautical miles at 10 knots.

Living areas also benefit from the propulsion arrangement. “By splitting the technical areas between bow and stern, more space is left for the guest accommodation,” says Battistini. “They significantly increase the interior volumes compared to other motor yachts of a similar size: a 75 square metre, full-beam owner’s apartment [for example]. And everything is conceived to point out the continuity between indoor and outdoor spaces.”

Indeed, throughout the boat, the design transforms at the touch of a button, usually in service of this indoor-outdoor lifestyle. In the upper saloon, huge sections of full-height window slide back, making balconies out of the broad side decks and, with the doors to the long aft deck open, it becomes a breezy cabana-like space.

Those side decks bulge from the superstructure to exaggerate the already expansive 8.6 metre beam, meaning the upper saloon can be full-beam, but crew have routing around it to avoid disturbing guests. They are a refusal to compromise – Wider by name, wider by nature.

The master suite, forward on the main deck, has its own technical treats. To starboard, a broad window powers open automatically for fresh air under way. But close that window and a much larger, marble-clad section of superstructure folds out. Touch the button for longer and teak decking slides out from under the floor and railings rise up.

It is an immaculate terrace with decking flush to the interior floor. It looks and feels like a permanent feature, not a temporary fix, and yet it’s easy enough for an owner to erect without the help of crew. Just as importantly since it will be closed most of the time, when stowed you wouldn’t guess it was there.

Transformational tech (mostly by Fratelli Canalicchio and Mak 2) also has more prosaic uses on board, as in the study at the entrance to the master suite. “If someone’s using the cabin and you want privacy here, there is this door,” says Antonelli, pushing a button that slides a concealed door from a bulkhead to separate the two spaces. “When it is closed there are two pneumatic seals, one in the ceiling and one in the floor, so we won’t hear anything.”

Indeed, sound has been considered in all tech on board, down to the air-conditioning and the automatic blinds, which descend inaudibly. But the bridge is the space most kitted with fold-out gadgets and moveable parts. “Because the space in the bridge is not huge we have two configurations,” says Antonelli; “one when the boat is in the marina or at anchor, and one at sea.”

The former involves five flat touchscreen Team Italia panels in a row plus one overhead; for the latter, the five panels angle up to 90 degrees and the outer two power round to form a semi-hexagon around the captain, whose seat folds out automatically from a cabinet below the consoles. “You can monitor all the functions of the boat, but you can also switch different functions to different screens, to have the configuration as you like,” says Antonelli.

Forward of the wheelhouse lies one of a few spectacular outdoor spaces. A watertight section of the forward coachroof rises automatically to create a hard roof with a recessed lounge – and built-in sofas – beneath it. “The covered foredeck lounge in the bow represents an exclusive and private space, where owner and guests can enjoy a nice breeze, shaded and panoramic views,” says De Simoni.

The foredeck also conceals a large garage with a 4.5 metre tender, jet skis, wakeboards, paddleboards and diving gear. Up top the aft of the sundeck accommodates loungers, the central space offers modern blocks of loose furniture in bright turquoise by Paola Lenti, while forward there’s a glamorous glass-topped bar and spa pool.

The deck’s stainless steel railing sits atop a low glass screen containing an LED strip for spectacular parties. Combined with underwater lights, she’ll be instantly recognisable in a night-time marina or among yachts in a crowded anchorage. Further down, the main aft deck is a private-feeling spot for a coffee, while the upper aft deck is the place to eat.

The focus is on these outdoor spaces – as well as making indoor spaces feel like outdoor spaces – and the interior décor reflects that. “It is a contemporary style of clean lines and taut, smooth surfaces,” says Davide Bernardini, Battistini’s design partner and co-founder of Ideaeitalia. “Soft bright spaces with a huge amount of natural light, wherein everything seems to look bigger
and ‘wider’.”

In the main saloon, this translates to full-height windows outside of which sections of bulwark have been replaced with stainless steel rails, for seascape views even from the snug, low seating area aft. The simple shapes and muted tones of brown and ivory are chic and low-key, highlighted with stainless steel mullions.

A huge textured metal panel at the forward bulkhead contrasts the glass dining table next to it, while cabinets are plated with what Bernardini calls “a reverse cast of silver and steel, placed directly on wood”, a thin layer of metal laid over wood and showing its grain.

Forward, the master suite, which takes up roughly the same space as the saloon and lobby combined, has a similar style. It runs through a big cabin with fabrics by Gentili Mosconi Home, a spectacular full-beam bathroom forward, featuring a custom-made wooden bathtub by E-Legno Group and a massive shower, plus a walk-in wardrobe and, of course, the office and terrace.

Down on the lower deck, you can really feel the beam in the en-suite guest cabins, which have a simple, pale, decorative scheme. In the two doubles, a nook with a full-height mirror serves as a compact dressing room – a thoughtful touch.

In the upper saloon, the sliding window sections are not the only attempt to open up the space. Every surface of superstructure and bulkhead that could take a window has one. The style here is lighter and less formal, with flowing white curtains, a silky cream rug and smaller glass table.

Throughout the interior there’s the graphic grain of zebrano parquet flooring, the muted taupe of Roman travertine, Poltrona Frau
leather and pure white Thassos marble.

Crew accommodation forward on the lower deck, built to the new LY3 standards, comprises a bright (orange-upholstered) mess that’s packed with storage, bright en suite cabins and a laundry room. There’s access forward to the generator room, or up via a crew corridor to the galley, near the dining saloon, which has a long window positioned so the chef can enjoy the view during prep.

Altogether the Wider 150 is a clever, lifestyle-focused package and while the Wider 150 was built on spec – she’ll be on show at the Monaco Yacht Show – a 125 version is at an advanced design stage, a 220 has garnered serious interest and a 165 is already in build for a client (and due to be launched in February 2017). That version, however, will have an even larger float-in garage so that forward of the tender it can carry a submarine. Now that’s how to show off.

The Real Costs of Owning a Superyacht [Complete Guide]

The Real Costs of Owning a Superyacht [Complete Guide]

November 25, 2019 1:00 pm

Owning a  superyacht  is a status symbol available only to the world’s wealthiest individuals and corporations. Although there is no strict definition, the Red Ensign Group Yacht Code is applicable to “motor or sailing vessels of 24 meters in load line length and over…and which, at the time, is in commercial use for sport or pleasure and carries no cargo and no more than 12 passengers 1 .” There are currently just over 10,000 superyachts in the world with around 200-250 new builds delivered each year. The vast majority are  motor yachts , with sailing yachts counting for less than 20% of the total. The world’s largest private vessel, Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s 180m (590-foot) AZZAM,  cost $600 million to build when it was delivered in 2013. Eight of the ten most expensive luxury acquisitions of all time were superyachts.

Purchase Cost

Buying a new or used superyacht will most likely cost the buyer several million dollars. Pricing varies widely based on the yacht size, age, and other factors such as builder, guest capacity, speed, range, and more. The market is worldwide and extensive. Any potential buyer would be well-advised to engage a professional, certified broker to guide them in the selection of their dream yacht and through the myriad of complications in making the purchase.

  • • Financing the Purchase
  • • Immediate Post Purchase Costs

Operating Costs

In years past, owners and their brokers would work on 10% of the purchase price as an estimate of annual operating costs, but the vast range of yacht size, operating location, and usage profile makes this approach less useful without giving the question more thought. Building a budget for a yacht requires consideration of the following elements:

Crew – Salary, payroll taxes, recruitment fees, uniform, health insurance, food, and travel for vacation and repatriation are all crew-related costs. A good guide for salary costs is published by Dockwalk magazine every year based on an extensive survey of the crew and placement agents. Using their most recent article as a guide, a crew of eight full-time crew on a 150-foot yacht will cost over $650,000 per year in salary alone. Get a complete crew cost breakdown.

Dockage – Unless the owner plans to spend the year at anchor, then keeping the yacht in a marina incurs a significant cost. Dockage is normally sold per foot of the yacht’s full length and per night, although contract rates for longer periods may be available. High-quality marinas in peak seasons are currently running in the $6-8 per foot per night range. Electricity, fresh water, and waste removal are all additional costs to be considered.

Fuel – The captain or engineer should be able to provide the fuel consumption per hour at any given speed, so if a yacht owner knows roughly how much he wants the boat to travel, then he can estimate the total fuel consumption and budget the fuel cost. There is also the fuel cost for generators, particularly at anchor. A typical 150-foot motor yacht cruising at 12 knots will consume in the region of 150 U.S. gallons per hour. At today’s fuel prices, that’s going to be close to $500 per hour. 500 hours per year will give us the main engine fuel budget of around $250,000. To this, we must also add the generators’ fuel consumption at anchor plus any additional cost for tenders.

Communications – Everyone onboard, crew and guests, want to remain connected to their social media, streaming services, and email. The technology available in this area moves fast and with 5G coming online, near-shore costs will likely come down. For those who want broadband speed while offshore, costs are high and depend on the upload/download speeds required. Start with an estimate of $4-5,000 per month and work from there. Additional communications costs include satellite TV subscriptions, crew cell phone costs, mail, freight, and more. Get a complete communication cost breakdown.

Maintenance, Consumables, and Other Operating Costs – Having considered crew payroll, marina costs, fuel, and internet, the budget will start to materialize. One must take all other costs into account, such as hull insurance, liability insurance, maintenance and consumables, warehousing, safety and survey costs, upkeep of the navigation outfit, computing support, car rental, and more.

How Much Does a Superyacht Cost?

21st apr 2024 by samantha wilson.

Rightboat logo

Superyachts are some of the most astounding machines on the planet. Their innovation and luxury have fascinated us for decades as we’ve watched them grow in length—and cost—by the year. Today, some of the most expensive yachts in the world can measure a staggering 590 feet and cost hundreds of millions of dollars. Yet the purchase price is just the beginning, and you need to have extremely deep pockets to consider owning a superyacht. Here we take a closer look at how much it costs not just to build or buy a superyacht, but to run it, as well as the price of chartering one of these magnificent vessels.

Superyachts are some of the most expensive luxury items on the planet and the largest ones can cost hundreds of millions of dollars. 

The Cost of Buying a Superyacht

There are 5,396 superyachts (classified as over 98 feet in length) gracing our oceans as we speak according to SuperYacht Times reporting in 2022. It’s a surprisingly small number when you consider the vast industry that supports them. Although when we look at the cost of owning a superyacht—the build or purchase price , as well as the annual ownership costs—it perhaps shouldn’t come as quite such a surprise. Superyachts are expensive! In fact, they’re one of the most expensive luxury items in the world, and some of the largest superyachts cost not just millions but hundreds of millions to build. 

The gargantuan Azzam holds the title of the world’s largest superyacht (for now), and at 590 feet long, it is huge. (See our analysis on Superyacht versus Megayacht .) The industry has estimated it cost $600 million to build, a figure that few people in the world can afford. One of those people is Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, whose 533-foot superyacht Eclipse cost an estimated $700 million to build in 2009. Jeff Bezos' recently completed the 417-foot superyacht Koru for an estimated $500 million.

While the largest superyachts hit headlines with their jaw-dropping sizes and build prices, the term “superyacht” covers a broad spectrum of sizes, from the smallest 80- to 100-foot (30-meter) yachts straight up to 230-foot yachts (70 meters) and on to those in the 330-foot (100 meter) range. According to Triton Charters, a good rough estimate for a small, custom-built superyacht is $1 million for every 3.3 feet in length. That means a custom 100-footer might cost $30 million. The formula is less likely to work for a larger superyacht, however, such as a 330-footer that could easily have a price tag of $275 million. 

When discussing prices it’s important to point out that custom and semi-custom vessels built in a production series hull) superyachts will vary in price accordingly. Many brands such as Princess Yachts or Sunseeker offer a production hull with a range of customizable options, from the layout to the finishings. The specifications chosen may increase the final price 20 percent or more. Even so, a new 130-foot semi-custom superyacht might cost in the region of $12-15 million, less than half what a fully custom yacht would cost due to being built from scratch from the very design upwards. 

Pre-owned superyachts of reasonably large size are likely to sell for prices in the $20 to $30 million range, according to a report by Insure4Boats. Older yachts on the market may fetch prices as low as $1.5 million to $2.5 million for a 15- to 20-year-old 90-foot superyacht. 

Superyachts vary hugely in size

Superyachts vary hugely in size, from 100 feet to the largest at 590 feet in length. 

Cost of Owning a Superyacht

Buying a superyacht is one thing, keeping it running is quite another. Where the industry once used the figure of 10 to 12 percent of the price of the boat in running costs per year, today that figure has risen to closer to 20 percent, according to Insure4Boats. So what goes into the running of a boat and why does it cost so much?

As we’ve seen, the sale prices of used yachts vary widely, from $11 million in the 130- to 160-foot category, $24 million in the 160- to 230-foot category, and perhaps $80 million for yachts of 230 feet or more. The running and maintenance costs of any vessel always need to be taken into account when looking at luxury yachts for sale , but when we’re talking superyachts for sale, the figures rise exponentially. 

  • Fuel: One of the biggest expenses is fuel, as superyachts are thirsty machines. As an example, a 230-foot yacht will use around $2,000 of fuel per hour while underway at 20 knots. A smaller yacht will use much less fuel, so a 150-foot yacht will use around 150 gallons per hour at a rough cost of around $500/hour. Assuming a figure of 500 hours of cruising time a year, that’s a total of $250,000 (excluding all the time spent at anchor with generators running). 
  • Dockage: Dockage costs for the largest superyachts can be extraodinary, and at any size point they will still be one the biggest expenditures. Prices are based on the length of the yacht per night. The more sought-after and prestigious addresses will carry the largest price tags, with $4,000 per night in the high season commonplace according to the Luxury Yacht Group. Towergate Insurance estimates that docking fees for larger boats can run up to $350,000 per year. 
  • Crew Salaries: Depending on the size of the superyacht, a full-time crew is usually required, and the size of that crew goes up with the yacht size, ranging from three or four members to in excess of 70 members. From the captain all the way down, the total sum of crew salaries will add up. A comparatively modest 150-foot superyacht could have an annual crew salary of $800,000 according to Luxury Yacht Group, which is around 45 percent of the total annual running costs. 
  • Maintenance: The upkeep and maintenance of these behemoth yachts is constant and, according to CNN, the annual estimated maintenance costs for Azzam are around $60 million. A much smaller yacht would of course be quite a bit less, but the same yacht maintenance costs need to be factored in. Add to that surveys every few years, which can run into the hundreds of thousands. 
  • Provisions: Whether the boat is being used by the owner or for charter, there will be a significant cost to provisioning, both for high-profile guests and the crew. Food, alcohol, flowers, water sports equipment, and much more will all be of the highest caliber and run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Consider that a single jet ski to run off the back of the yacht can cost between $5,000 and $20,000. 
  • Insurance and administration: The insurance on a 150-foot yacht would be around $73,000 annually, according to Luxury Yacht Group, with management and administration costs on top of that.

The annual maintenance and running costs of superyachts can run into the millions including crew salaries, fuel, and dockage fees. 

How Much Does it Cost to Charter a Superyacht

If the numbers above have got you reassessing whether superyacht ownership is right for you, then fear not. Chartering a superyacht can be a stress-free way to enjoy the luxury yachting lifestyle with more predictable prices. The cost of chartering a yacht will depend on several factors such as the size and age of the yacht, the destination, the length of the charter, and the level of provisioning required. 

Superyachts usually operate on a pricing structure that is based on the base cost of chartering the yacht including the crew, facilities, and insurance. Other expenses such as fuel costs, food and drinks, special events, and dockage, which will all vary from charter to charter, are charged in advance in what is known as an Advanced Provisioning Allowance (APA).

According to Northrop and Johnson, superyacht charters can cost anywhere from $150,000 per week to over $2 million per week plus expenses. The 278-foot yacht O’ptasia , for example, has charter prices starting at $868,000, while 196-foot Scott Free starts at £395,000 per week.

Detroit Post Office Celebrates 150 Years of Service by J. W. Westcott, 45-foot contract mail boat out of Detroit

%release-subtitle%

J. W. Westcott, 45-foot contract mail boat

DETROIT, MI — On June 7, 2024, the Detroit Post Office celebrated the 150th Anniversary of the J. W. Westcott Company and the 76-year association of the J.W. Westcott as an official U. S. Postal Service mail boat beginning in 1948.

The J. W. Westcott is a 45-foot contract mail boat out of Detroit that delivers mail to passing ships on the Detroit River. It is the world’s first non-military floating ZIP Code – 48222.

“I’m honored to be part of this historic celebration,” said District Manager Rick Moreton, Michigan 1. “I’m most proud of all the work done by the men and women through 76 years of mail deliveries by Detroit’s hometown treasure, the J. W. Westcott.”

To commemorate the occasion, the Detroit Post Office is offering a Pictorial Postmark available until July 7, 2024. To receive this special cancellation, enclose your stamped, addressed cards or letters in a larger envelope, and mail to:

J.W. Westcott Pictorial Postmark                    Postmaster Detroit, MI George W. Young Post Office 1401 W. Fort St. Detroit, MI 48233-9998 

The United States Postal Service is an independent federal establishment, mandated to be self-financing and to serve every American community through the affordable, reliable and secure delivery of mail and packages to 167 million addresses six and often seven days a week. Overseen by a bipartisan Board of Governors, the Postal Service is implementing a 10-year transformation plan, Delivering for America , to modernize the postal network, restore long-term financial sustainability, dramatically improve service across all mail and shipping categories, and maintain the organization as one of America’s most valued and trusted brands.

The Postal Service generally receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
