Project: Cranchi Sessantasette

After launching the much awaited new Settantotto flagship Cranchi pushes its development for further designs, enters the new Sessantasette, set to debut in the second part of 2021 boat show season.  As with many builders a new flagship brings fresh ideas and styles, which enrich the range further down, and the Sessantasette takes a lot from the early 2020 debuted 23 meter flagship with Christian Grande taking design duties co-assisted with Cranchi research and design team.  I have followed Cranchi since mid eighties and each flagship they launched represented an evolution; from the balanced 40 Mediterranee of the end eighties, the 48 Atlantique of end nineties, the 50 Mediterranee, and the 64 HT of 2009.  The 67 family feeling with the Cranchi Settantotto is very strong. Having the same design team as the 78, the Sessantasette lines are emblematic and complement each other, they refer to the different elements of the profile. For example, between the curve of the stern hatch and the projecting part of the fly or between the cut of the windows and the break in the center of the wall.  With the knowledge of the Cranchi Settantotto, the new Sessantasette also derives its extraordinary technological equipment with the adoption of hi-tech materials as well as an innovative construction technique. The Sessantasette will thus offer the highest safety standards and the best solutions for stabilization, containment of consumption and emissions, noise reduction and home automation and entertainment systems.  Cranchi has not passed much details of the interior layout of Sessantasette but expect a similar solutions to those of the new flagship, as many motor yachts in twenty meters expect to have a four or three double cabins interior.  The Cranchi Sessantasette will be powered by twin Volvo 1000hp with forward IPS-1350 pod drives.
