The beauty of this boat speaks for itself: watch the heads turn in its wake.

A good example of how to build a boat with both good performance and seakeeping, without exceeding with the power of the engines. The interiors layout has taken advantage of every centimeter available.

Limited power, but good performance nevertheless. Savings on fuel usage, maintenance costs and purchase price, without giving up the pleasure of sailing your own boat. How is that possible?

Put simply, one could answer that all it takes is being good at making boats. But obviously, that’s a non-answer, a flippant reply trying to summarise so many – too many – things. And so what could be better than a good example? So here is the Cranchi M44 HT, 14 meters long, 11 tonnes unladen displacement, two bathrooms, two cabins which sleep five, but in the engine room, there are “only” two Volvo Penta D6s which develop 330 hp each.

There are "only” two Volvo Penta D6s which develop 330 hp each.
The Volvo Penta/M44 HT hull combination is at its most efficient.

Normally boats of this size have over two hundred more horsepower available, but they have very similar performance in terms of speed. Indeed, on a day with very calm seas Cranchi actually touched 33 knots, which is even more than what the yard states as its top speed, but – above all – Cranchi found what it is like to cruise at 3,000 rpm, which is when the Volvo Penta/M44 HT hull combination is at its most efficient.

That means using 3.8 liters of Diesel every nautical mliters04 litres an hour, travelling at nearly 27 knots. The engines are a long way from being forced, as shown by the sound levels registered both on deck, 82 decibels, and in the bow cabin, 74 decibels. All in all, the perfect cruising speed.
