New Model: Cranchi Fifty 6 Soft Top

Cranchi present its second new model for the 2010 season with the Fifty 6 Soft Top launched in Genoa. This new model is third in Cranchi's 2009 launched upper size Yacht Class range, but also number three for using Volvo IPS drive in the family of this Italian builder. Cranchi's Fifty 6 Soft Top, follows recent sport yacht trends for a hard top with a very open feel on the main living cockpit deck. This means a fully opening soft top, and sides opened up to allow fresh air. Measuring an overall length of sixty feet this new Cranchi makes the exterior a very spacious one with the usual layout, C-shaped settee, sunpad aft and an unusal central helm station with two bucket seats. Down below is space for two large cabins, mid ship for the owner, to fore for the VIP guests, and a medium sized third L-shaped bunk for guests, which are joined here by a C-shaped saloon, and galley. Power is from twin Volvo 600 or 700hp engines propelled to the forward looking IPS pods, with both choices giving over 30 knots wide open throttle speeds.
