Wider 42, acclaimed as the world’s most innovative performance yacht made its debut in Asia today at the Singapore Yacht Show – one of the key yacht shows in Asia. The sleek-looking yacht measuring 42 feet has the versatility of expanding its width at a flick of a button to hold a party of 12 persons comfortably.
The Wider 42 is being exhibited at the Singapore Yacht Show from the 18 April to 21 April, where registered visitors will be able to test the outstanding performance in terms of speed, stability and versatility.
The yacht can reach a speed of 50 knots in a few seconds and a range of 350 miles at 40 knots. Such performances - unthinkable until now for a yacht of this size – are now made available through a perfect mix of avant-garde design and innovative technical solutions, such as the automatic patented system which makes it possible to double the cockpit surface in just 12 seconds.
The originality and excellence of Wider 42’ enabled it to win three of the most prestigious awards in the yachting industry, namely the Robb Report’s “Best of the Best” - AIM “ Editor’s Choice” - ADI Design Index Publication and to be acclaimed by leading yacht magazines as the world’s most innovative performance yacht.
The Wider 42 is the result of years of experience behind the Wider Group, a yacht manufacturer established in 2010 to produce innovative yachts for the future, the idea mooted by its founder Mr. Tilli Antonelli.
“A compact performance yacht with the ability to double its space when needed, custom-order features and state-of-the-art navigation system, Wider 42 is not a “me too” in the competitive yacht industry. I am investing in WIDER because I believe the team headed by Tilli Antonelli will continue to produce innovative ideas to set WIDER apart from other yachts and be the choice for the elite yacht owners, especially in Asia”, says Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, a partner in Wider.
“Wider 42 aims to meet the growing development of the Asian market for smaller and versatile luxury boats,” states Tilli Antonelli. “Wider 42 is just the beginning of more exciting and bigger yachts to come. Our next yacht is the Wider 150 model, a revolutionary project as the whole boat will be in aluminium. The larger Wider 150 will have two more terraces in addition to the existing private terrace in the master's cabin. The width of the hull will be increased to offer wider spaces and therefore more comfort on board. So stay tuned. You can expect more from Wider”.
