Following the laying of the keel announced a year ago, the construction of Wider’s Moonflower 72, a full custom project designed by Nauta Design, continues on schedule at the builder’s Superyacht Hub in Porto Marghera, Venice, Italy.
The steel hull and aluminum superstructure have been joined, and the “hot works” are now completed. The main engines are to be installed in the summer. Interior outfitting and piping are underway on lower decks.
Moonflower 72 was officially signed on January 20, 2022 with delivery planned for 2025. It is the first custom-built new-build after Wider’s recapitalization, led by Marcello Magi, head of W-Fin Sarl – the holding company that holds 100 percent of Wider equity.
“The construction of Moonflower 72 is well underway at our Superyacht Hub, dedicated exclusively to full-custom projects,” says Maggi. “We specifically chose Venice due to its strategic position and the professionalism of the various workers involved. The harmony between Wider & Nauta is also noteworthy.
