Cranchi XT36

Motorboat & Yachting - - New Boats -

With the XT36, Cranchi says it has com­bined the ‘ra­tio­nale of a trawler and the thrill of a sportscruiser.’ Not an ob­vi­ous com­bi­na­tion to go for, but maybe it’s on to some­thing?

The plan­ing hull is com­bined with twin stern­drives and ei­ther a pair of Volvo Penta D4-260s or 300s for a top speed of around 30 knots. So it will go and han­dle like a sportscruiser but on board, you get a prac­ti­cal, bright sa­loon and two de­cent cab­ins with a shared bath­room. Although the amid­ships cabin also has its own toi­let.

If sheer sleep­ing space is your pri­or­ity then there is even a three­cabin op­tion, amaz­ingly. There is no word yet as to whether there will be a fly­bridge ver­sion of the boat avail­able but it’s cer­tainly a de­sign that would lend it­self to one, in the im­age of Bénéteau’s new Swift Trawler 35.
