Cecilia is berthed at Quai Lucciana L03

The all new Italian built Wider 165 Cecilia is berthed at Quai Lucciana L03, right in front of the shipbuilders stand, at QL13

Constructed entirely in aluminium, the profile of the Cecilia is the product of the in-house design team in collaboration with Italprojects by Fulvio De Simoni and the naval architect Sydac by Lelio Falletta.

Designed to accommodate the owner’s long wish-list of toys, both inside and out, Ceciliasatisfies the desires of the most adventurous, with helipad included.

The interior layout, designed by IdeaeItalia in conjunction with the owner’s architect, is packed with more stand out features including a generous study with terrace on the port side, private gym with terrace on the starboard side, a sauna room as well as a spacious and light owner’s cabin and ensuite bathroom.

On the foredeck, the helicopter-landing pad, unique to our range, and circular seating areas set into the superstructure, forward of a large Jacuzzi tub, offer a versatile space that will double as generous dance floor for fun evenings afloat.

The stand out feature is the inclusion of a generous Beach Club with plenty of spare space that can be customised to suit a client’s needs such submarine storage, dive room or sauna/spa. 

The entire layout and decor of the vessel has been studied in minute detail to satisfy and exceed the owner’s requirements but also clearly reflects the shipyard’s desire to offer customized projects on standard platforms.

Low-Consumption Diesel Electric Propulsion

The yacht’s beating heart is its serial hybrid propulsion system combined with a 544kWh Lithium polymer battery bank and Azimuthal pods, which guarantees hugely reduced fuel consumption and exceptionally low levels of noise and vibration.

Four inline variable speed diesel generators, controlled by a clever power management system and the latest battery technology, serve the hotel and propulsion requirements of the vessel.

The traditional engine room has been replaced by a Power Generator Room, located in the bow. This leaves the mid ship of the vessel free for larger, more comfortable guest cabins located in the most stable part of the yacht. This arrangement is only possible because of the use of the serial hybrid propulsion system combined with Azimuthal pods, which receive power through an electric cable unlike traditional propulsion systems, which have shafts. In addition to space gains, this combination together with Lithium polymer battery banks affords significant advantages compared to conventional shaft-line propulsion.

These include:

  • Increased reliability
  • Fuel efficiency – 84 litres/hour at 10kts giving range of 4700nm
  • Greater range
  • Exceptionally lower noise and vibration levels
  • 544kWh of battery power, enough for overnight stay or 8 hours at anchor
  • Use of all of the on board systems, with no engines running
  • Complete silence with no exhaust fumes or smell while at anchor
  • Ability to cruise for 6 hours at 5kn
  • Reduced maintenance – Time between overhauls is extended
  • Greater flexibility

The propulsion system is also completely modular, meaning Cecilican cruise using only the battery packs, in ZEM (Zero Emission Mode), or with up to four inline diesel generators. When fully charged, the battery power is sufficient to power all of the hotel services, including air conditioning, for an overnight stay at anchor or while enjoying the beach in complete silence, with no engines running.

A range of 3,100nm is expected at a cruising speed of 13kn, increasing to 5,400nm at the ecological speed of 10 knots. The yacht has a maximum speed of 14.1 knots.

Also available at Zero Emission Speed, Cecilia can run solely on batteries for silent cruising at lower speeds (5 knots), or for short movements, avoiding the need to start generators to move anchorages or for early starts.

All Aluminium Construction

The yacht’s intelligent design focuses on minimizing fuel consumption and emissions while maximising on board living space, without underestimating the importance of easy maintenance.

The material chosen for the entire construction is aluminium, a noble, durable metal that, being particularly lightweight, makes it possible to increase the performance/consumption ratio of the yacht and hence achieve a considerable reduction in emissions. Combined with the fact that aluminium is completely recyclable, this helps to reduce the vessel’s footprint on the environment. Aluminium also provides greater freedom during construction as it increases the opportunity for customisation, yet considerably shortens production times.

The interior design enhances the connection of the owner and guests to the water at all times through the use of large windows, side-opening balconies and spacious exterior dining and entertaining areas.

Designers at IdeaeItalia have worked hard in order to obtain very bright interior spaces combined with warm colours, linear and clean design matched with a perfect balance of wood, glass and leather, reflecting the taste of the owner.

The choice of materials used on board are primarily deep sanded oak, roman travertine stone, premium quality leathers and Italian white marbles. These have been elegantly combined to give a contemporary styled interior with a distinct Italian flair. Among the many unique features on board Ceciliaare the owner’s private terrace overlooking the sea, which opens off the master cabin. The sizeable guest quarters comprise four en-suite cabins on the lower deck.

A crew of 11 are accommodated in five cabins on the lower deck and a cabin for the captain next to the wheelhouse. An ample crew mess complies with the latest standards (LY3) for crew.

A central corridor gives direct access to the laundry, cold room and power generation room, located at the furthest point from the guest accommodation
