Web: Cranchi New Web Site

One of the most famous European production boat builders renews its virtual online showroom. Cranchi was founded officialy in 1870 with the story starting with Giovanni Cranchi who in 1866 opens a workshop in Como building fisherman and transport boats on commission, and four years later to this he registers officially this company. In 1932 the grandson of Cranchi also named Giovanni purchases a building in Brienno, Como on the lake shore and transforms it into a shipyard. This step leads into 1952 when Cranchi and his children devote themselves to wooden boats mass production. But the real turn around for Cranchi comes from fourth generation Aldo in 1970 when fiberglass production is started and an establishment in Piantedo, Sondrio is opened up. This move produces the first Kiko model, and leads after this to various over one thousand delivered models; 1971 4.85 Pilotina, 1974 20 Rally, and the 1997 34 Zaffiro. The plant in Piantedo also continues its expansion and in the eighties its size is of 20,000 squared metres, and today it is 33,000. Other sites are also followed; San Giorgio di Nogaro Marine Test Center in 1997, San Giorgio di Nogaro 22,000 square meters factory, a third plant in Colico, Lecce, and last in 2005 the opening of Seventy Plant 4 dedicated to plus fifty feet yachts in an area of 100,000 squared meters of which 25,000 covered located in Rogolo, Sondrio. In all these plants Cranchi today produces a total of twenty two models in six different line of boats; Sport Line, Cruiser, Hard Top, Flybridge, Outboard, and the upcoming Trawler line which is still without a model. Cranchi entry level is the new 20 Panama of the Outboard line, while the flagship is the Sixty 6 Fly Yacht Class launched in 2010. For 2012 Cranchi presents four new models; 20 Panama, 32 Panama, 54 Fly, and Fifty 8 HT Yacht Class. Cranchi's new website takes you around with the following buttons; Home, The Range, Company, Dealers, and Contact.  Cranchi new website also features links to the company official social internet hubs Facebook, and Twitter.
