The smart cruise

If you are looking for a glamorous boat that will not let you go unnoticed, look no further. You look for a boat for long cruises? The same. Need an easy-to-manage boat for fast day cruises? There you are again. And we could go on, because the Cranchi M44 HT is able to satisfy a wide array of different needs and hence embrace a more and more heterogeneous range of sports enthusiasts.

What’s the secret behind the success of the Cranchi M44 HT? It’s simple: this is a real cruise boat. She has an iconic profile, an elegant and functional internal area, she uses every available inch of space efficiently and, most importantly, her sailing performance is excellent and fuel consumption is low. To sail well – and with speed – you don’t need excessive horse-power.

The soft top guarantees maximum shading in the cockpit and can also be opened fully, transforming the Cranchi M44 HT into an authentic open top. When you feel like being in the shade, the well-insulated sunroof creates a closed, warm space.

The top covers the seating area that extends onto the bow deck, while the kitchen area is located to the left and a chaise longue can be used for sunbathing under the open roof.

The navigation area comprises a state-of-the-art set up, combining analogic instruments with digital monitors.

The recent makeover by Christian Grande has enhanced the elegance of the internal space using a contemporary, functional and attractive design. The rooms are well organized and make efficient use of space. The stern cabin neatly fits three beds, while the bow cabin provides plenty of space to move around the bed as well as for storing luggage. A real kitchen, and it deserves to be called as such, is located at the heart of the boat.
