One of the most innovative boats launched in many years, the Wider 42, conceived by Tilli Antonelli, formerly the head of Pershing, is truly one of a kind. Its most unique aspect is that the amidships topsides open out at rest, doubling the size of the cockpit into a floating sports or entertainment center. Small floats extend out underneath to maintain a stable platform. With twin Yanmars, the lightweight, stepped hull reaches 50-knot speeds. And using Formula 1 technology, all gauges and controls are fitted into the steering-wheel hub. We applaud Antonelli as a visionary and thank him for making our job so fun.
If you haven’t yet seen the Evo 43 then you’re in luck. This boat uses some really inventive design to amp up function in a sharp dayboat with a nice turn of speed. But when you anchor out, the Evo plays her trump card.
