Cranchi Yachts has revealed an exciting pair of yachts to arrive in 2020. The A42 Luxury Tender and the Sessantasette flybridge yacht. The A42 Luxury Tender exalts the fundamental principle of walk-arounds: total freedom of movement without obstacles around the central elements of the cockpit which for this yacht is the large aft sundeck and the sporty pilot console with triple seat in the centre of the boat. Whether you use it for a transfer, a day trip or for a longer cruise, this freedom of movement offers practicality, comfort and a sense of pleasure. Aesthetic qualities are confirmed by the design choices that favour soft lines and draw large surfaces and generous dimensions.
The cockpit looks like a large open space in which some winning features stand out. Starting with the beautiful hardtop that completes the elegant line of the windscreen. From a perceptive point of view, it is truly unique how this element of the superstructure appears light when compared to the lines of the hull and at the same time capable of giving character and more personality. The hardtop offers protection and shelter from the sun at the console and above all in the living area which can thus be experienced at any time of the day, always with maximum freedom: the rigid roof, in fact, opens in seconds with a blade system derived from the highest range yachts. At the bow, there is a second sundeck which, thanks to a configuration that recalls the classic Portuguese bridge, proves perfect as an additional seat.
But the most surprising element is discovered at the aft in the area dominated by the large sundeck. At the end of the boat, in fact, there are two sides that can be instantly opened with a servo-electric mechanism to consistently enlarge the walkable surface of the cockpit, thus creating an additional projecting area on the water, in complete continuity with the cockpit flooring and well connected with the platform, which can also be moved in the up and down direction and in the transverse direction. The A42 Luxury Tender thus offers its guests a real terrace overlooking the sea; a perfect place for relaxation, fun, sunbathing and diving into the waves.
Under the aft sundeck, there is a garage that can accommodate a tender up to two meters in length and the swimming platform with double movement proves to be very useful for facilitating the launching and re-entry of the boat. As is clear, this yacht invites you to outdoor life but this does not mean that the Shipyard has neglected the spaces below deck which are also designed according to open principles and with extremely functional convertible solutions. The dinette can be transformed into a sleeping area which is added to the comfortable cabin. The bathroom has a separate shower stall.
There are numerous solutions both below and in the cockpit to facilitate the connection with electronic devices, watertight USB sockets, universal wireless charger for smartphones and audio and entertainment systems that can be managed from any position. The A42 Luxury Tender is designed with IPS (inboard propulsion system) engine but with a view to guaranteeing the greatest satisfaction of shipowners with different needs and tastes it is extremely likely that a version with outboard engines will also be put into production. The colours of the hull and the décor elements can be customised with the Cranchi Atelier program.
With a length overall that exceeds 67 feet (20.8 meters), the new model will be called Sessantasette, like the number, written in full and in Italian. It is the same principle for which the shipyard’s flagship is called Settantotto, meaning that this yacht gives much more than its length might suggest. It offers the best of Made in Italy design and style, superior technical solutions and an unmistakable and already iconic line.
The family feeling with the Cranchi Settantotto is very strong. The project is presented in collaboration with the Research Center of Cranchi Yachts and Christian Grande who is entrusted with the art direction. The 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 centre 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 a construction technique that has no equal in the world. The yacht will thus offer the highest safety standards and the best solutions for stabilisation, containment of consumption and emissions, noise reduction and home automation and entertainment systems.
