The Wider Yachts 125 was unveiled to the world at the Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami

Wider Yachts, best know for its innovative expanding 42ft sportscruiser, has released plans for a 125 superyacht at the Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami.

Designed by Fulvio De Simoni, who has penned boats for Pershing, Astondoa and Rodman amongst others, the 125 is an aluminum displacement yacht equipped with diesel-electric propulsion, good for 14 knots flat out and a claimed range of 3,600nm at 10 knots.

Wider has placed many of the electrical components of the hybrid system in the bow, making for a smaller engineroom and therefore more space further aft for accommodation.

So guests are treated to four lavish ensuite bedrooms whilst crew are catered for across three twin cabins and an ample crew mess plus a separate sleeping area for the skipper adjacent to the wheelhouse.

This leaves the master stateroom, which is a splendid space located on the main deck. The owner also gets their own study further aft, which includes an opening terrace accessible from the bedroom itself as well.

Wider has designed two separate galley layouts for American and European clients, the US edition featuring the kitchen on the main deck, accessed via a spacious pantry. This means that crew can enter the galley through a side door or directly from the crew quarters without disturbing guests and space is left on the lower deck to fit a gym.

In European spec the galley resides on the lower deck and the main deck master can be split to make space for a family room or gym.

As well as being a handsome beast the 125 has some clever aesthetic touches to maximize the view out for those on board, like bulwarks that rise and fall in line with the windows so as not to obscure the vista.

On the upper deck, aft of the wheelhouse, a sky lounge leads out to an inviting aft deck, which can be sectioned off from the lounge by glass panels or left unobstructed to create one large living area.

The very top deck is left devoid of furniture to accommodate sunloungers whilst on the bow there is the option to have a jacuzzi. For those who want to be a little closer to the water the transom “beach club” with its flip down platform should do nicely.

But if the stern is a beach bar, what about the tender? That lives in a void within the bow, big enough to hold a 5.5m tender and two jet-skis.

It may not expand at the touch of button, but the Wider Yachts 125 is still pretty cool.
