What’s not to love? Wider Yachts launches the Wider 150 M/Y Bartali, recognized by Robb Report as Best of the Best 2017.
Wider Yachts was recently 100% acquired by Exa Limited (whole owned subsidiary of Genting Hong Kong Limited) in April of 2017. This latest acquisition complements their existing portfolio of yachting investments which include Grand Banks, Palm Beach Yachts and the Lloyd Werft shipyard in Bremerhaven, Germany.
In Miami, the Genting Group is known for their purchase of the Miami Herald building as a proposed site for a massive casino. The group recently announced their new plans for the property—a mega-yacht marina.
The land was purchased for $236 million in 2011 and has remained vacant since the Miami Herald building was demolished in 2015.
