Based on the hull lines of the Fifty 8 Fly, Cranchi presents the younger looking Fifty 8 HT.  This new Cranchi is the hard top coupe version of the flybridge presented last year, and features more or less the same layout. with the spacious lower deck with three spacious cabins, including of which a full beam owners stateroom, with en-suite head and nice small dining breakfast table to port stealing the show.  The main deck is characterized by a single level area for galley and saloon, with a split level separating the L-shaped dining table and central helm station.  Apart the hardtop flybridge difference between the two models are to be found; from the   saloon sofa in this model in a bench format against the L-shape, and that the owners cabin is served by larger view windows.  Power is Volvo 600 or 700hp with IPS pod drives which give max speeds up to 35 knots.
