Following the launch of the groundbreaking 115 ft EcoYacht catamaran last year, Pajot Yachts have joined forces with Italian shipyard WIDER srl. This partnership has consolidated into the Wider-Pajot Eco Yacht series with a new 145 ft development featuring more volume, deck space, and performance. The design team at Pajot Yachts now offers more customization on both designs with helm and galley positions and configurations.
Marc Pajot sees massive benefits in creating this partnership with WIDER, especially working with their CEO Marcello Maggi who has become the ‘go to’ expert in hybrid power solutions for all sizes of yachts.
The synergy with what I have been developing with our ECO catamaran and the superyachts produced by Wider is exceptional. Now with the new 145ft model becoming available, it augments the larger monohull hybrid superyachts that are built at the WIDER Ancona shipyard. The ECO credentials are now an important factor in the expectations and demands from the new eco-aware yachting customer. Adding leading edge hybrid power-train technology developed by WIDER and their specialist technical partners and suppliers, has created a unique yachting opportunity and experience. – Marc Pajot
Hybrid power options can come in many technical configurations, from the basic sources such as diesel generators and more exotic electrical power systems. Power Management Systems and electric propellor drive arrangements for the 145 ft yacht are provided by the partnership with WIDER.
ECO yachting and hybrid power technology is an area of expertise we have been developing for over a decade now and has been demonstrated and proven by launching innovative yachts for appreciative owners. I refer to this vision as ‘Born-Electric’. In addition we have developed the Wider Electric Management System, a unique solution to efficiently manage the electrical requirements for our yachts and now the Wider-Pajot Eco Yacht. Our expertise in the hybrid yacht market is clearly demonstrated by our collection of industry awards, including the RINA Green Plus. We are just beginning an age of ECO awareness for yachting as a whole and WIDER will be at the leading edge of this technology at all times, from hydrogen power to the dawn of new power sources such as Thermionic Converters. I am personally very excited about our partnership with Marc Pajot and his exceptionally talented team. Together we will build some spectacular ECO hybrid catamarans, setting a new benchmark on the oceans. – Marcello Maggi
