The beginning of the year 2014 saw Wider announce that it has begun production of the newest addition to the revolutionary Wider fleet: the sleek yet spacious Wider 32’ superyacht tender. Penned by Fulvio De Simoni as the perfect tender to the Wider 150’ yacht or any other superyacht, this highly versatile model is equally suited to use as a fast, comfortable sport cruiser. Wider is thrilled to announce that the Wider 32’ yacht tender has now been launched on schedule and is ready for inspection.
As you would expect from a Wider yacht, the new 32’ is easily distinguishable from other express cruisers. Its dominant axe bow and low transom give the impression it is leaping out of the water, eager to slice through the waves. The 9’ 8” beam tapers only slightly towards the bow in order to provide maximum cockpit space and freedom of movement, and to facilitate boarding from a mother ship. The cockpit is designed to be easily adapted to the owner’s specific requirements, accommodating as many different configurations as possible from an inviting dining area with folding table to a nice sunbathing platform. The Wider 32’ also comes with an adjustable, easily installed awning to shade the entire cockpit.
Below deck, the stylish cabin is furnished with two facing sofas that provide comfortable seating for entertaining or ship-to-shore transportation protected from the weather; they also convert into spacious berths for overnight stays on board. The galley, equipped with sink, stove ring and refrigerator, disappears seamlessly into the contemporary cabinetry. A surprisingly large, full-beam head with shower is housed in the bow. Storage for personal belongings is maximized throughout the Wider 32’.
The hull is designed to provide a smooth ride and excellent performance. Twin 260-hp Mercruiser Turbo Diesel engines mated to Bravo 1 DTS stern drives deliver a cruising speed of 30 knots and a top speed of 37 knots. This diesel propulsion package also ensures that the tender’s fuel matches that of the mother ship.
Wider President and CEO Tilli Antonelli and his design team have invested thousands of hours into the design and development of the Wider 32’ superyacht tender, in order to ensure that it is practical for use as a tender but also reflects Wider’s philosophy of innovation and initiative. When configured as a tender, the dedicated design, engineering and construction process behind this innovative vessel makes it possible to achieve a perfect symbiosis between the Wider 32’ and the superyacht it serves. But no matter how the vessel will be used, Wider offers a high level of customization for the 32’. The owner can select from a wide range of hull and deck colors, window glass and frames, sunpad and seat configurations, upholstery and accessories, to make his or her own final version of the boat come to life.
“The owner is the most important player in the creation of his boat, so his Wider 32’ ultimately will reflect his own individual being,” said Wider President and CEO Tilli Antonelli. “Imagine a project designed to offer you a truly personal and unique experience, which through teamwork involves you in the most inspiring phase, when your yacht comes to life. All that is left is for you to give it an identity. Let yourself be inspired by fragments of your memories to mix and match your favorite styles, colors and materials. Bring all of yourself aboard, because Wider 32’ is made of who you are.”
