Project: Cranchi Fifty8 HT

Cranchi presents a project for the Fifty8 HT, another new member of its ever important Yacht Class range which by the end of 2012 will feature six models from 54 to 66 feet.  As is usual to Cranchi a lot of Research and Design goes in each model release, and even tough the Fifty8 HT is the sleek sports version of last year released Fly model of the same designation I am sure this is again the case.  Cranchi Fifty8 HT follows recent trends of a sports yacht with accommodation and comfort which competes to that of a flybridge boat.  The interior layout of the Fifty8 HT follows that of the Fly version with a living on the main deck, and a lower deck dedicated to three double cabins and two heads, of which one en-suite for the master room.  The owner stateroom located to midships has a bed which looks to port side, and having a breakfast table opposite. The main deck which is in a split level shape surprises for its central helm which is accompanied by a dinette to port side, and astern galley located by the patio door.  Power options are twin Volvo engine choices, a 600 or 700hp with the second generation IPS800 or 900 choice.  Speed estimates are not as yet given, but imagine a max of 32 knots possible with the big engine choice similar to that of the Fifty8 Fly model.
