Project: Wider 32

One of the most appealing features of the Wider 150 super yacht currently in build is its capacity to house a 32 tender in the aft garage. The wet launching system designed to launch the tender allows the lazarette to transform into a luxury pool/spa area surrounded by a Wider beach. Tilli Antonelli and his design team have invested thousands of hours into the design and development of this vessel, keen to ensure that it is practical for use as a tender but also reflects Wider’s philosophy of innovation and initiative. The result is the new Wider 32, perfect for use as a super yacht tender or as a small sports cruiser. As you would expect from Wider, the 32 is easily distinguishable from other sports cruiser yachts. The dominant axe bow and low transom give the impression that it is leaping out of the water, eager to slice through the waves. Her slim ten feet less beam tapers only slightly towards the bow, giving maximum floor space for sunbathing and to facilitate stepping on board from a mother ship. This is a yacht that is perfect for use as a tender but can also be enjoyed as a standalone sports cruiser, fully equipped with an enclosed dinette area with two convertible sofas, galley equipment, and a separate head. The Wider 32 will be powered by twin Mercruiser 260hp engines, connected to Bravo stern drives to deliver a top speed of 37 knots and a cruising speed of 32 knots.  Work on the molds of the Wider 32 is already under way. Assembly will be starting in March with a view to finishing the first unit towards the end of May.
