Out-News = Cranchi Sinks in Lipari

A fourteen meter Cranchi sport cruiser with eight passengers onboard hit a reef in Lipari, on Saturday 27 June at around 1220 local time.  The eight passengers where rescued immediately by the Coast Guard, while the Cranchi sport cruiser was saved from total sinking by a local company, who then took it to the Lipari harbour for salvaging.  The passengers where taken back to the sister island of Salina from which they departed.  The Cranchi hit the reef called Secca del Bagno, which translates to Bathers Reef located on the Western part of the island.
The Cranchi in the accident was a 47 Mediterranee model, a two cabins sport cruiser designed in-house by Aldo Cranchi and produced from 2004 up till 2010.  The 47 Mediterranee was also available in a HT hard top version, and was powered by standard twin Volvo 500hp or optional 575hp engines.
