The WIDER 32: A Radical Take on the Private Cruiser

By Ben Roberts

While superyachts may be the ultimate in onboard luxury, spanning numerous decks and dwarfing most vessels on the water, you can take to the water in style regardless of size. Whether it’s a dedicated tender for your superyacht or for a private cruise around the Miami waterways, we look at why the WIDER 32 is the ultimate toy to break wake.

The WIDER 32 and 42 are a symbol of passion for design, pushing the boundaries of what a cruiser should be. Highly versatile, stylish and spacious, with outstanding performance to boot, both models are composite built and made with characteristic Italian flair by WIDER Yachts.

Looking to the WIDER 32, which was originally conceived as a versatile tender for the WIDER 150 and WIDER 165, this radical approach to design is a fun, fast day cruiser, ideal for anyone who wants to combine the comfort of well-designed spaces with top-level performance.

The WIDER 32 is an easy boat to handle thanks to the combination of twin Mercruiser 3.0 TDI 260 HP engines and the well-designed deep V hull which absorbs the impact of waves. The powerful twin engines make manoeuvring easy in tight confines and can achieve an impressive top speed of 37 knots

The roomy cockpit can be configured to suit a variety of uses: by moving the seats around, the layout can be modified to achieve a spacious sunbathing area or raise a folding table to create a comfortable dining space. In addition, the yacht is equipped with an adjustable awning to shade the cockpit.

The cabin offers ample storage and is furnished with two comfortable sofas, which convert into spacious beds when necessary. The galley – fitted with a sink, ceramic hot plate and minibar – can be discreetly stowed away when at sea. The bow houses the head, which extends across the width of the hull to accommodate a generous shower.

No matter where you’re heading this summer, the globally popular WIDER 32 is a statement vessel with style to match capability.
