Headlining the bill we have three pedigree models from the Italian Cranchi range.
The E26 Classic and E26 Rider are based on the same beautifully styled hull. The Classic offers well appointed accommodation beneath a closed foredeck, cosseting seating in a deep sheltered cockpit with outdrive power and sunbed aft. The outboard powered Rider is all about copious single level deck space and comfortable seating that would usually be found on much larger sports cruisers. It even offers a cleverly disguised toilet compartment to keep all aboard comfortable.
The largest of the Cranchi trio on show is the latest model from a long pedigree of excellent Cranchi mid 30ft sports cruisers. The Cranchi Z 35 (pictured left) offers an immaculately designed and built 32-knot+ sports cruiser with generous bathing platform, seating and bar, perfectly located steering position, two double cabins, dinette and galley. This is the perfect size for everything from day tripping to extended cruising – small enough to fit many marina berths without forward booking and large enough to be comfortable at sea and accommodate family and friends. The Z 35 is in stock and ready to go.
Viking Cruisers has a well deserved reputation through offering practical cruisers that have introduced thousands of families and their friends to boating. At Southampton we'll be showing two of their most popular models – the four berth Viking 24 (pictured here) and six berth Viking 275. As a Viking specialist we offer these boats in the Highline specification as standard, offering everything needed for the first time or experienced boat owner. Both models are in stock for immediately delivery.
There has been an explosion of interest in recent years for open motor launches, sloops and tenders from the Netherlands. Working in conjunction with D & R Engineering we are pleased to offer the Maxima range and will be showing a Maxima 720 and Maxima 600 at the show. Both boats have a fully disguised outboard installation in the stern, maintaining a classic inboard look and reducing the sound of the already quiet Honda motors that are fitted as standard. A larger or smaller outboard can be specified depending on intended speed and use around the coast or on rivers. You can even waterski behind the 720 despite its classical tender looks – a genuine wolf in sheep's clothing!
Finally we're pleased to be displaying the Ranieri H2CC at Southampton for the first time, again in conjunction with D & R Engineering. This sleek centre console open deck boat combines the styling cues of an Italian sports car with low maintenance practicality and great performance at a price you'll find hard to believe.
