Often described as the Oscars of the motorboating world, the European Powerboat of the Year Awards is judged by the test editors and editors-in-chief of eight leading European motorboat magazines — Båtliv (Norway), BoatMag (Italy), BOOTE (Germany), Motorboot (Netherlands), MoteurBoat (France), Nautica y Yates (Spain), Neptune (France), Marina CH (Switzerland) and Yachtrevue (Austria). It highlights truly trend breaking designs that are set to make a big impact in the coming season.
Cranchi's T 36 Crossover offers lively performance and a comfortable experience that will amaze, considering its compact size. The planing hull ensures remarkable peak speeds, but the space onboard far outweighs those of a cruiser. It's like taking the practical aspects of a trawler and blending it with the performance of a sportcruiser.
Practical touches abound, from its hard top and airy wheelhouse saloon, to its connection with the cockpit area on one level without any steps. Prominent lines, both forward and aft, extend the living spaces and give more dynamism and momentum. In the cockpit there is a comfortable seat and along with a grill and a sink set into the furniture. Access to the generous swimming platform is very easy, as is walkaround access around the decks forward. The hard top is equipped with locking holders that can accommodate two bikes, or a stand up paddleboard or a canoe.
On the lower deck, all the space is dedicated to the sleeping areas, in two alternative layouts: with two cabins and two bathrooms, or three cabins and one bathroom. It's yetr another example of how the Cranchi T 36 is truly multi-purpose in its concept and delivery of a great family boating experience.
Neil Mallandain, Sales Director for Tingdene Boat Sales, said: "We're delighted for our partners at Cranchi that their efforts with the T 36 have been so well recognised, right at the start of Boot Düsseldorf. When you speak with the Cranchi family regularly, as we do, you truly understand the passion, high quality engineering and brilliant design that is found in the DNA of each model. We are delighted to be representing this award winning Italian boatbuilder in the UK, particularly as this is one of the few ranges left in Europe now that provides such a comprehensive set of choices between 26ft and 60ft.
The Düsseldorf Boat Show, held between Saturday 19th January and Sunday 27th January, is Europe's largest boat show. The Tingdene team are there on the Cranchi stand A21 in Hall 6 to greet you and show you five Cranchi models that span this versatile and brilliantly designed range.
Düsseldorf is directly connected by air and it's also an easy car journey from the Channel ports if you prefer that way of travelling.
