Faster, Farther … Wider

The Wider 42 is like no boat I’ve ever seen. Same goes for you too, I bet.

I recently got to test the Wider 42 down in Key Largo. Whew! What a boat. The thing is nearly all carbon fiber, and, of course, has those pontoons hidden away inside its hull. When activated, they stretch out to turn what is essentially a high-performance center console into a true-blue party boat, with tons of space for guests to relax. We took the thing all over, from Miami to the Keys, and were lucky enough to snag a room overnight at the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, which is—oh man—that place is close to a boater’s paradise. Just an overall gorgeous resort. I don’t want to give too much away, because there’s a full test of the Wider coming up in the June issue, so far now, check out this pic I snapped with my iPhone, and trust that this is one special boat.
