Project: Cranchi 58 Fly

The fourth upcoming project to come for 2011 from the Cranchi stable is the 58 Fly, which is also model number four to join the Yacht Class line since this was presented officially two years ago with the Sixty 4 HT.  Just as other Cranchi's the 58 Fly shares hull lines with another model, in this case the fall 2010 launched Fifty 6 Soft Top, but a total different use of space is to be found, especially to what regards the lower deck.  For a boat this size and with IPS pods the 58 Fly accommodation plan is surely one of the most spacious, and which has made the best use of the 2005 launched propulsion system.  Not just because of the three cabins but what each of these offer.  For example both the owners stateroom to midships, and VIP suite located to fore offer a walk in ward robe solution, and this is done without sacrificing any space from the third cabin which still has two single parallel beds.  Surely unheard for a boat this size especially considering the space the owners room to mid ship with breakfast dinette to port by the view window offers. An optional crew cabin located to port side with a separate entrance from the aft deck is also available.  The main deck is also modern in its solution with an astern galley, L-shaped sofa, raised L-shaped dinette, and central single seat helm station.  The flybridge is also well sized offering the today much used layout of C-shaped settee to aft, wet bar with grill, sun pad to fore, and helm station to starboard.  Tender stowage is to be on an up and down hydraulic bathing platform.  Power is from twin Volvo 600 or optional 700hp with IPS pod drive.  Estimated speeds are a max of 34 and a cruise of 26 knots with the bigger 700hp choice.
