Yacht Works Introduces Two New Cranchi Models at the 2012 Miami Boat Show!

Cranchi and its Florida and Great Lakes dealer, Yacht Works, is very proud to introduce two new yachts to the US market at the Miami Yacht and Brokerage Show.
Just after being awarded the #1 European Power Boat of the Year for its 30 Endurance at the Duesseldorf Boat Show, Cranchi is very pleased to introduce the 58 Fly Bridge and 40 Soft Top to the American market.

Cranchi Fifty 8 Fly

The 58 Fly Bridge exemplifies Cranchi’s attention to detail
and its continued expertise in designing a functional yacht with extraordinary contemporary styling. With an overall length of over 60 feet, the 58 Fly has 3 very comfortable staterooms with a full beam master. In addition, there is a dedicated crew cabin for one with its entrance from the cockpit.
She is extremely maneuverable thanks to the Volvo IPS drives controlled from three various stations throughout the yacht. The Volvo propulsion system, combined with the automatic trim tabs provided by Humphree, make the 58 Fly extremely nimble and with a cruising speed of 24 knots at a consumption rate of 44 gallons per hour, she is still very economical.
The 58’ Fly Bridge is the perfect yacht for those wanting to enjoy time in the sun. A large forward sun pad with an optional power assisted Bimini top offers room for three and at least twice the amount of friends may enjoy what the fly bridge sun lounge has to offer.

Cranchi M40 Soft Top (ST)

The M40 ST offers a very comfortable space
in a contemporary design that exemplifies the latest technological achievements by Cranchi. The overall length including the swim platform is just under 45 feet, affording a large amount area on which to spend time on the water. The electrically actuated soft top retracts to allow a fully open air helm, dinette and cockpit area. The forward bow includes two separate sun pads on either side of a recessed window, allowing natural light into the master stateroom. In addition to the forward master, is a full beam guest stateroom (with windows on either side) that has sleeping arrangements for three. If one includes the convertible dinette in the salon, there are accommodations to sleep 7- not easily found on a 40 foot boat.
The optional joystick control, combined with the Volvo Duo Prop engines allow for stress free maneuvering when docking.

Vicem Yachts presents the NEW 61 Bahama Bay at Tuyap Istanbul Boat Show 2012 (18-25 February)

The Vicem 61 Bahama Bay merges Vicem classic Down East styling with the latest cutting edge technologies of Volvo IPS. The Vicem 61BB boasts some new twists to a beloved classic style motoryacht, and this the second time for any Vicem model (first one was the Bahama Bay 54) with the IPS Drive system.

The 61BB is part of the Bahama Bay series, a line of boats designed and built specifically for Volvo Penta’s IPS system. The Vicem Bahama Bay range is completed with the 55 and 58. The Bahama Bays – similar in appearance to the Vicem’s Classic Line – have less curve in the sheer line, no varnished-teak hand and toe rails above deck and an hardtop that extends all the way aft to cover the teak-laden cockpit. The Bahama Bay line is made for more Mediterranean and tropical climates too. Vicem loves to present a classic look and profile without all the classic maintenance, to make it stand up better to the harsher effects of the sun. Dave Mallach Vicem US Director of Sales refers: “Here in the United States we are quite excited by the splash of the latest Bahama Bay model. Our American clients are very focused on large, mid-ship master cabins. The BB61 achieves that better than any comparably sized yacht I have seen. When you couple with that increasingly popular Pod Drive system, it is a complete winner for us”.
