The first page of the long Cranchi Yachts history was written in 1866, when Giovanni Cranchi opened a workshop near Como Lake to build fishing boats and boats to transports goods and people across the lake. 60 years later, Giovanni Cranchi’s nephew purchased a building to create a full-fledged shipyard, where also the signature Cranchi quality was first shaped. Until the ‘60s, the shipyard built wooden boats (Tanus, Faster, Sbarazzino e Dinghy 12 P all came out at this time). During the ‘70s and ‘80s the shipyard reached a turning point and started to produce fiberglass boats, moreover it shifted from an handicraft moulding to a more industrialized processing, that allows the company to reach high production volumes for many models: Pilotina (1,550 units in 6 years), Scout (500 in 5 years), as well as Rally 20, Hobby 20, Derby 700, Clipper 760, Start 21 and Cruiser 32. The shipyard kept on expanding throughout the ‘90s. The Marine Test Center opened in 1997 to showcase the new products, as well as to test prototypes. Cranchi Yachts became a stock company in 2006, lead by the fifth Cranchi generation. The current production is divided in different categories: Trawler (40-53 feet); Crossover (XT 36); Flybridge (52-60 feet); Hard Top (38-60 feet); Cruiser & Day Cruiser (30-35 feet); Sport Line (27-33 feet) and Outboard (Panama 24).
