Italian motoryacht builder Wider has launched its Wider 32 on schedule. Designed by Fulvio De Simoni, the 9.6m-yacht is the perfect tender for superyachts yet performs as a sleek Express Cruiser.

The new Wider 32 features a dominant axe bow and low transom. 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, a 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 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 offers a high level of customization for this model.

“The owner is the most important player in the creation of his boat, so his Wider 32’ ultimately will reflect his own individual being,” says 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 favourite styles, colours and materials. Bring all of yourself aboard, because Wider 32’ is made of who you are.”

Established in March 2010, Wider is headquartered in in Castelvecchio di Monte Porzio (PU) in Italy where a 10,000m2 structure – of which 4,600m2 are covered – is dedicated to the production of composite yachts- the Express Cruiser Division. The production of aluminium superyachts takes place at the Ancona facility, in a structure of around 2,500m2 located near the water.
