Tingdene Boat Sales will be providing a UK debut to two leading models from Italian high-quality motor yacht manufacturer, Cantiere Nautico Cranchi SpA. The Z 35 from the Cruiser range and M 44 HT from the Hard Top line-up. Both will be displayed at TheYachtMarket.com Southampton Boat Show 14-23 September on berths M224 and M224A. They will be joined by a Cranchi Endurance 30 on berth M222.
If you want a classically proportioned sports cruiser, then look no further than the Cranchi Z 35 Cruiser (pictured right). Its midships helm position is perfectly located to enjoy 32-knot+ performance from twin Volvo Penta D4 260hp outdrives. Aft you find a generous bathing platform, seating and bar, and forward two double cabins, dinette and galley. Add Cranchi's Italian styling and engineering excellence for the most fun you can have in 35ft. The first example of this model to land in the UK has already been sold just a few days after arriving at Tingdene, a telling endorsement of its appeal.
No matter which angle you look at it, the Cranchi M 44 HT Hardtop is a real head turner. Its extended hardtop flows up from the deck in one continuous sweep, sheltering the helm and dinette underneath a large opening roof while keeping the accommodation completely open to the beach style aft end of the boat and its luxurious twin sun beds forward. Below a central saloon is flanked by a master double cabin and a perfect three bunk cabin for the kids and their friends. Power options run from twin Volvo Penta D6 330hp diesel outdrives to twin 400hp units. The example being shown by Tingdene features a very high specification, geared for UK waters.
Neil Mallandain, Sales Director for Tingdene Boat Sales, said: "We always knew that Cranchi would be a winning addition to the wide range of boats that we represent but even we’ve been surprised by the high interest shown. Unusually these days, this is a range that you can grow through. Our 10 sales offices are very well geared to support owners at whichever level they choose to enter the Cranchi experience – a perfect blend of heritage, Italian design flair and high technology engineering. The Z 35 and M 44 HT will demonstrate that experience really well and we’ll be pleased to welcome people to our Cranchi launch weekend on 21-22 July and then at the TheYachtMarket.com Southampton Boat Show in September.”
Cranchi offers high quality Italian-built boats from 24ft to 60ft, in a wide range of styles including day cruisers, sports cruisers, hard tops, flybridge yachts and trawlers. A Cranchi owner can progress right through the range from outboard-powered weekender to highly appointed luxury motor yacht.
