Cranchi Yachts announces its presence at the Miami International Boat Show from 15 to 19 February 2023, where it will be displaying three models on the water off Herald Plaza, the location that the Miami Boat Show dedicates to powerboats, motor yachts from 30 to 125 feet, and yacht tenders. A perfect setting for the Italian shipyard, which will be taking along its E26 Rider, A46 Luxury Tender and, for its American début, the Settantotto 78 ft.

The US début of the Settantotto 78 ft
Cranchi Yachts’ flagship is a 25-metre flybridge yacht with the spirit of a real super yacht.

The Settantotto 78 ft will be unveiled in Miami in its Panama Supremo livery, a special shade of white selected by designer Christian Grande and the Shipyard’s Research Studies Centre.

In perfect combination with the glossy black t-top, the Panama Supremo hull brings out the suggestive interplay of colours between the yacht's structure and superstructure, with the latter visually lightened. The lines of the Settantotto 78 ft are thus now even more sleek and sinuous, amplifying the astonishment created when discovering the large areas and generous volumes of the interior, perfectly illuminated by natural light, as suggested by the symmetrical breaks in the hull at the level of the main and lower deck.

Four cabins are available below deck, all with bathrooms: three large double bedrooms, and a cabin with single beds. In each cabin, the beds are positioned longitudinally to the stern/bow axis to offer guests the best comfort as they rest. The full-beam master cabin is in the amidships area, featuring walk-in wardrobe and a beauty corner or office space, giving the feel of a large, luxurious suite. Sophisticated elegance and great comfort mark out the VIP cabin in the bow. The crew cabin is also comfortable, with two berths and a bathroom with separate shower. The crew cabin, with separate access from the rest of the areas, also houses the laundry with washing machine and dryer. This cabin is located between the engine room and the owner's cabin to ensure the best acoustic comfort for the sleeping quarters; this is also aided by the sound damping applied to all bulkheads.

Large volumes, elegance and functionality are the distinctive elements of the square deck too, where the galley, saloon and relaxation areas are optimally laid out. The presence of an additional bathroom on the main deck represents an unusual detail on a yacht of this size.

On the main deck and on the fly deck, the yacht offers large open-air spaces, with areas dedicated to socialising and relaxation both at the bow and stern. Added to these are the beach platform which is easily and safely reached. Equipped with a lift that allows it to rise, lower and move forward, the pilot station can be transformed into an immense terrace overlooking the sea, thanks to the extraordinary surface area provided by the teak-clad garage compartment. Opening the hatch of the compartment reveals a large space, in which the area used for storing a tender and a jet ski can be separated from the section closest to the beach platform, where chaises longues can be placed.

In perfect harmony with Christian Grande's art direction choices, the Settantotto 78 ft is furnished with items from the collections of Flexform, an historic and dynamic Italian furnishing brand. The large dining tables, one in the saloon and the other in the cockpit, as well as the comfortable armchairs and chaises longues chosen for the flybridge: all these free-standing elements, which can be selected in accordance with the owner’s tastes, help make the yacht original and welcoming, and at the same time are able to convey a feeling of grandeur and intimacy.

The customisation programme put in place by Cranchi Yachts for its flagship is particularly extensive, also including five décor offerings which reference the aesthetic canons of Italian design, with material and colour choices that exhibit refined taste and offer a tone of warm and relaxing elegance to the spaces.

The model which will be presented in Miami features Roma décor, an option whose mood is particularly popular in markets outside of Europe. The woods and elegant fabrics used for the vertical surfaces as well call to mind the earthy tones of Italy's landscapes, while the veined marbles lend an unmistakably classical feel to the rooms: the Roma décor provides an unmistakeable imperial allure to the yacht.

To make the on-board experience even more enjoyable and comfortable, each space on board the yacht features a number of entertainment and home automation systems, all of which can be easily managed from a smartphone or from the steering console, courtesy of the glass cockpit by Garmin, which provides easy access to all the systems.

The Settantotto 78 ft's hi-tech vocation reveals itself in many other aspects, first and foremost in the use of innovative materials. Cranchi Yachts has developed a matrix of resins and fibres suitable, in terms of directionality and malleability, for the needs of the nautical industry and able to withstand the type of stresses to which a boat is subjected, thereby improving the resistance and performance of the hull and other structures while at the same time obtaining a lighter vessel. Insulation and sound damping systems have been applied to all areas of the yacht, with particular attention being paid to the engine room which houses three Volvo Penta D13 in-line six cylinders, each capable of providing 1000 HP when required. Together with three IPS3 pods, they form a compact, reliable and manoeuvrable solution which is ideal for this large yacht.

A46 Luxury Tender and E26 Rider
Moored alongside the Settantotto 78 ft, Cranchi Yachts will be presenting another two models in Miami which express the Shipyard’s different interpretations of the tender yacht.

The E26 Rider, with outboard engine, is an innovative and extremely versatile bowrider: ideal for day trips, it is at the same time ideally suited as a luxury tender serving a large yacht or a villa. The vertical bow stem which characterises the profile of the E26 Rider gives a timeless, sporty look to the boat, whose heart lies in the cockpit: an elegant and surprisingly large area, with functional solutions which offer total freedom to those on board.

The A46 Luxury Tender is a yacht which is a class unto itself, with distinctive characteristics that also make it ideal for use as a dayboat or express cruiser. Designer Christian Grande wished to emphasise the horizontal lines: the gunwale traces a very taut line, which is not interrupted by any vertical component or visual element. The entire perimeter of the yacht can be safely covered on the walkable stringers, without ever meeting any obstacle. Among the many wow factors of the A46 Luxury Tender, those which stand out are undoubtedly the steering console with three forward-facing seats with an elegantly sporty style, the sides which open instantaneously thanks to a servo-electric mechanism to significantly extend the floor space of the cockpit, and the extraordinary full-width T-top in carbon fibre: hi-tech, ultra-light and resilient, with a louvred system which allows the hard top to be opened in just seconds, creating interplays of light and shadow which provide a unique experience perfectly in keeping with the refined style of the A46 Luxury Tender.

Cranchi Yachts’ new stand
Cranchi Yachts is going to Miami with a completely overhauled stand. The lounge space and customer welcome areas are extremely high impact, featuring elements selected from Flexform's collections. In harmony with the yacht's furnishings, the Shipyard’s stylistic choices combine refined materials and contemporary design to offer visitors spaces reminiscent of natural Italian well-being.

Cranchi Yachts’ sales network will enjoy extensive representation in Miami thanks to the attendance of numerous American dealers, who have always been highly involved in promoting the brand and its range throughout the continent.

In order to guarantee the best experience to visitors to Cranchi Yachts’ stand at the Miami International Boat Show, it is possible to request a personalised fast pass at which will provide holders with faster access to the boats area.
