(Castelvecchio di Monte Porzio (PU) - September 6, 2011) Wider, the nautical company established in 2010 by a project of Tilli Antonelli, is going to present the new Wider 42’ at the Cannes boat show, September 6-11, 2011. The international debut of Wider 42’ will take place within this prestigious international boat show in Europe, a ‘must’ appointment for all nautical fans. According to the company, the revolutionary 42’ feet, whose lines are characterized by Fulvio De Simoni, introduces the fleet and launches the new wider cockpit category: a boat with strong design ideas, to enjoy with equal amounts of adrenaline and recreation, able to change and adapt to satisfy a wide range of demands, through solutions offering total comfort and pure relaxation, unthinkable qualities so far for this kind of yachts.

Wider also states that the Wider 42’ differs from other boats because of its capability to double in just 12 seconds the usable surface of the cockpit, thanks to mobile extensions either side of the hull, activated by means of an automatic and patented system. “It’s an honour for us to debut in occasion of one of the most important international appointments, that offers an extraordinary display where we can present our project, more and more exciting, and in a never-ending evolution," says Tilli Antonelli, President of Wider. "A key occasion to meet an enthusiastic public and let them know our product and philosophy: a brand new way of living the sea, beyond all the stereotypes”.

To give the best possible exposure to the project, Wider decided to exhibit two boats: the first one in the new version with aft sun pad will be in the waters of the Vieux Port on Jetèe Albert Edouard Sud. The second unit of Wider 42’ will be on display outside the expo, on the Esplanade Georges Pompidou, in front of the Festival Palace entrance, to become the protagonist of the renowned Boulevard de la Croisette in Cannes.
