New Model: Cranchi Sixty 6 Flybridge

Cranchi basing itself on the hull of the first model of the new Yacht Class the Sixty 4 HT presents a new flagship with the Sixty 6 Flybridge. As usual to Cranchi good engineering and well planned interior and technical areas make the difference in its models. Unusual characteristics for a flybridge but found in the Sixty 6 are the wet bar galley in the aft deck, the sunpad settee conversion to stern, and the jockey style raised helm station inside. Accommodation is a three double cabins plan plus a single berth crew cabin aft, and as the large window suggests there is a spacious full beam owners stateroom at mid ship. The galley is located below, and although the layout plan shows it being a bit enclosed I still think an option for a main deck choice should be included in this size. The interior main deck saloon looks also a bit less in size versus the competition but large windows and a lot of natural light will give the impression that it is actually bigger, although you do get a larger aft deck for this. The flybridge is again smallish for a twenty meter yacht but then again you have a free area aft which can be used how you want it. Some details also leave me confused in the new Cranchi Sixty 6 Flybridge like the stainless steel radar arch or the support pillars for the overhang of the extended fly. Nothing wrong in these but from a certain point of view they do look a bit economic, and less clean to the lines of the Sixty 6 Flybridge. Power is from twin MAN 1400hp which give wide open throttle speeds of 33 knots.
