Editor’s Cruising Pick:

The Wider 42 was made for cruising luxe destinations in the Caribbean and the Med. Personally we’d like nothing more than to hop her across the Gulf Stream to Bimini, Bahamas, and pop open her terraces at Honeymoon Harbor. Where’s your paradise? Like us on Facebook and let us know where you’d most like to take the Wider 42.
