Wider has announced that it will once again participate in the Cannes Yachting Festival, which is running from 9th to 14th September, and that it will also debut at the Monaco Yacht Show, scheduled for 24-27th September; exhibiting a large stand and two units of the newly launched Wider 32’ Yacht Tender.
The Wider attendance to the two major yachting events on the calendar represents not only the perfect occasion to exhibit different configurations of the new superyacht tender Wider 32’ –the first units shall demonstrate different examples of the colors available – but also to tell the evolution of the all-aluminum ships under construction in the Ancona Superyacht Division.
“We consider crucial the participation to the Cannes Yachting Festival and for the first time we are also ready to announce our attendance to the Monaco Yacht Show, as these are the reference boat shows for yachting enthusiasts and indispensible steps in our internationalization path in and outside Europe – says Tilli Antonelli, President and CEO Wider. – Three years after the launch of Wider 42’ our Yard has managed to position itself as one of the most innovative ones on the international scene. In this year 2014 we are proud to unveil the first hulls of the new Wider 32’, designed as the perfect tender to the Wider 150’ or any other superyacht, a highly versatile model equally suited to use as a fast, comfortable sport cruiser. Our projects are far from ordinary and stand out for their high technical value and design. At the moment we are working intensely in the new shipyard in Ancona where two superyachts, characterized by a special diesel-electric propulsion, are under construction. The first Wider 150’ will be launched next summer 2015, whereas the flagship of the Wider fleet, Wider 165’, will be in the water in 2016.
Thanks to the great dynamism that distinguishes the company and the originality of the projects’ proposal, at the end of 2012 Wider has signed a partnership with EXA Ltd., a company that refers to Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, a distinguished entrepreneur who spearheads the Genting Group, one of Asia’s most dynamic conglomerates.
The additional resources generated from this transaction will increase the development of the strategic plan of the company according to the guidelines defined by Antonelli and it will encourage the momentum of international markets. In addition to Europe, USA, South America and the Middle East – where the brand is already known, the partnership with Exa Ltd. Will in fact be an important driving force for entry into the Asian market.
In occasion of the Cannes Yachting Festival the Wider stand (Jetée Albert Edouard Sud 193) will be enriched by Italian products like elegant outdoor furnishings solutions, marine electronic technology applications and finally also by integrated audio-video systems especially designed for luxury yachting. These co-marketings namely mean the exhibition of wonderful sail awnings (that can be completely rolled up in a few seconds thanks to a motorized mechanism) as the Defense and Intrepid models and of elegant and romantic sofas like the Vinca line, outdoor furnishings technologically advanced and durable, all of them part of the Italian production of Corradi Outdoor Living Space. Videoworks – with an extensive experience in the design and installation of integrated audio and video for the main pleasure yachts – will exhibit monitors with different characteristics and waterproof external speakers with Digital Ice Power Amplifier for colour customization. Finally Team Italia, international leader in the design and production of maritime navigation systems for superyachts, will exhibit I-Chart®, a marine chart table developed with the idea of creating a professional tool with a user-friendly interface for Owners and a technical nautical-requirements system for Captains.
Wider, never enough!
