New Model: Cranchi 54 HT

Looking at this Cranchi 54 HT model it certainly impresses for having on appearance the largest hull view window ever seen on a boat.  But do not be impressed as the window size on the 54 HT is the same as that of the Fly version, a vertical box shape serving the owners cabin amidships.  The black painting on hull one make you think it is a full glass area.  This new Cranchi 54 HT is a model based on the Fly model presented in 2012, with everything being the same minus the flybridge up top.  Still for those looking for a private sunpad, the 54 HT does offer one up top reachable from a ladder in the aft deck to starboard.  Can we call this a sun-bridge?  Just to refresh the layout of the 54, this HT offers a lower deck dedicated to three large double cabins, and a main deck featuring a convivial area joining saloon and galley.  The owners room is a full beam amidships layouts with private en-suite head and a double queen sized berth looking to starboard side.  Power is twin Volvo 625hp engines with IPS pods propulsion.
