2021 Cranchi A44
Instant classic yachtby Sulthoni, on
In the new season Cranchi Yachts is preparing to present an innovative project in the segment between 40 and 50 feet. Once again it is a yacht that makes its own category: the A44 Luxury Tender is a large luxury tender with unusual and distinctive characteristics that make it ideal also as a dayboat or express cruiser.
The A44 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 are the large aft sundeck and the sporty pilot console with triple seat in the center 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 favor soft lines and draw large surfaces and generous dimensions.
2021 Cranchi A44
There is in this clean line a promise of absolute elegance and the expression of the noble attitude of this yacht and of those who choose it.
The first thing that strikes you about a yacht is its profile. Because in the most successful projects a glance at the profile lines is enough to perceive the character of a boat and to distinguish a yacht with personality from one that is a simple copy.
Looking at the A44 Luxury Tender you immediately feel a sense of originality and you perceive the strength and beauty of an idea. The designer Christian Grande wanted to emphasize the horizontal lines and the belt traces a very taut line and is not interrupted by any vertical element or sign. The accent marked by the belt is taken up by the lines of the glass body that characterizes the hull. An essential cut, precise but not aggressive. There is in this clean line a promise of absolute elegance and the expression of the noble attitude of this yacht and of those who choose it.
The colors of the hull and the décor elements can be customized with the Cranchi Atelier program to make the style of this yacht inspired by the savoir-vivre and appeal of Mediterranean culture even more unique.
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 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 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.
Under the aft sundeck there is a garage that can accommodate a tender up to two meters in length and the swimming platform.
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 side 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 A44 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 tender.
The full-width hard top deeply characterizes the aesthetics and character of this yacht.
Iconic for the beauty of its lines and the suggestive chromatic effect given by the carbon fiber, the full-width hard top deeply characterizes the aesthetics and character of this yacht.
Its soul is hi-tech - very light and resistant, with lighting and integrated hi-fi system - but the sensations it can arouse are absolutely romantic and magical. This is above all thanks to the blade system derived from the highest range yachts that allows you to open the rigid roof in a few seconds and thus find shafts of light and shadow that offer unique suggestions, perfectly in tune with the refined and seductive style of the A44. Those shafts of light will make you feel like you are being transported under the pergola of a villa on the shores of the Mediterranean or on a veranda of a luxury resort on an island in the Indian Ocean. Authentic magic! And, as if that weren’t enough, the shade offered by the hardtop can also be extended to the cockpit thanks to convenient fixtures. When choosing such an ingenious yacht, your every wish becomes an order.
This yacht invites you to outdoor life but this does not mean that the Shipyard has neglected the spaces below deck which is also designed according to open principles and with extremely functional convertible solutions.
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 is 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 chargers for smartphones and audio and entertainment systems that can be managed from any position.
The A44 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.
What they say
“Mix in the hydraulic bathing platform and access to the sea is outstanding, plus the bathing platform becomes part of the launch system for a 2m tender that stows away beneath the sun pad.”
