Cranchi A46 Luxury Tender
The newborn in the range of Cranchi Yachts is a Luxury Tender of 46 feet, with distinctive features that make it ideal as a dayboat or express cruiser. The designer Christian Grande wanted to emphasize the horizontal lines: the belt traces a very taut line and without being interrupted by any other element or vertical sign.
The accent marked by the belt is taken up by the lines of the glass body that characterizes the hull. A cut, essential, precise but not aggressive. The authentic vital and emotional centre of the yacht is the elegant galley corner, equipped with stove, sink, refrigerator and ice machine to enjoy the best occasions of relaxation and fun, the moments of happy hour or meals.
The pilot is destined for the central seat, in front of which there is a large pilot console equipped with the best that electronics can provide today, to manoeuvre the boat and to manage all the home automation and entertainment systems. Under the stern sundeck opens a garage that can accommodate an inflatable tender up to two metres in length, for whose operations of putting in water and return is very useful.
The A46 Luxury Tender is powered by two Volvo Penta IPS D6 engines, each rated at 480HP (2×353 KW), which guarantee optimal navigation and low fuel consumption. Hull colours and décor can be customized with the Cranchi Atelier program to make even more unique the style of this yacht inspired by the savoir-vivre and the pleasantness of the Mediterranean culture.

There are even more surprises in store for this spectacular yacht. At the bow, an optional 2.5-meter saltwater Jacuzzi will be the envy of any yachtsman. This optional, with interior window and cup holder, is the perfect finishing touch to an incomparable boat.

Another new highlight is that her flybridge features a Lounge area that’s twice the size of her predecessor, the Saona 47. Like the New 51, the Tanna 47 can also benefit from a large area of solar panels, ranging from 5 to 9m², offering ever more self-sufficiency under way.
The cabins combine comfort and space in equal measure, with available layouts including an Owner’s version with its three cabins, one being a suite with walk-in shower, or the Quintet version with five suites and their five private bathrooms.
Invictus Capoforte SX200
Invictus Capoforte SX200 is a synthesis of functionality and fun. Managing to recreate livable, usable spaces in just six metres was a complex challenge but turned out to be a success. All without compromising the traditional elegance that has always distinguished Invictus Yacht. Versatility is the top priority. The bow and stern areas can be used as sundecks or lounges, either separately or configured as a single large space.
The layout with an off-centre console permits a convenient direct passage between bow and stern, leaving space for a grill. The storage adds further practicality to a boat whose style, exclusive finishes and exuberant performance unequivocally convey a sporty vocation.
The sporty nature of the Invictus Capoforte SX200 is underlined by the 150 hp outboard engine which easily takes the boat to over 30 knots, while 20 knots is the best option for fuel-efficient cruising. This performance, combined with a marine hull ready to tackle any kind of sea, is the best guarantee of a safe, fast and comfortable boat.

Saxdor 320 GTC
Saxdor Yachts introduces the latest model in its 320 range, the GTC. This 10.3m cabin cruiser offers year-round usability thanks to its fully enclosed wheelhouse with sliding roof and multi-function aft doors with a section that drops down into the deck.
The doors are a key component aboard the GTC as they allow the cabin to be sealed off from the elements entirely or open it up to the cockpit to create one large indoor/outdoor living space. The standard fit sunroof and folding terraces add to the GTC’s market-leading flexibility and help create a true multi-purpose cruiser.
The wheelhouse is significantly more spacious than key rivals’, creating space for a four-person dinette, wet bar and driver-focussed helm station on the starboard side. The aft deck, well protected by the cabin structure, is fitted with a dinette and, in another first for the sector, comes with folding terraces on either side, boosting cockpit space at the touch of a button when the boat is at rest.
The lower deck is bursting with natural light thanks to the four large panes of glass in the coachroof and there is standing headroom both in the cabin itself and within the spacious separate bathroom. The boat is available with single and twin Mercury outboard engines and will be capable of 50 knots with the twin 300hp option.
The new C335 is combining flexibility, space and luxury in an exemplary manner.

Every interior design element of this family cruiser has been redeveloped to make the available space more smarter and more luxurious than ever before in a 33ft boat.
The saloon, for example, has been equipped with a flexible passenger seat that completes the seating area around the dining table when folded down. High-quality work surfaces in the new galley are divided between the cooking area and the sink, and can be folded up as required. The steering position combines maximum operating comfort with modern aesthetics and optimum all-round visibility. Open the sliding glass door and the hinged window to bring the cockpit and saloon together.

Nautor’s Swan is once again pushing its limits by entering the motor boat market with Swan Shadow. She’s not only a chase boat but a powerboat embodying the core values of Nautor’s Swan – performance, quality, elegance. The design of Shadow incorporates features that customers might generally expect to see in larger full-custom or semi-custom yachts, features that are not too common in 40-foot powerboats.
One of these features is a movable aft platform, transforming a visually simple design from a fixed platform to a swim platform or a passarelle. Another design feature is the addition of optional telescopic roof pillars and moving glass panels to create a convertible cabin. The Swan Shadow also features a unique walkaround deck plan with no steps, for experiencing and enjoying the spaces in full safety. The position of the three outboard engines, from 225 to 350 HP, embedded in the aft platform extends the livable area on deck, and the open stern gives a sensation of closeness to the water, perfectly suited for a boat designed to enjoy the very best of the sea.
The interior has been designed to ensure maximum comfort and style onboard, offering accommodation for either shorter day trips or a longer cruises. The forward cabin is ideally suited for a couple. An additional crew cabin can be installed in the bow to complement the cabin capacity.
