In any field, without limiting our focus on the corny parallelism with automobiles, crossover represents an exchange of information between two subjects which would be different otherwise. There’s the musical crossover, where different rhythms, tunes and styles are combined; the genetic crossover, where homologous chromosomes exchange DNA fragments; the crossover of tv series, movies and video games where the plot intersects with one or more episodes of another series, another movie or another video game. At sea, the crossover concept is introduced by Cranchi. The T36 Crossover of the Italian yard successfully joins specific features of different categories together. An apparent trawler despite the considerable height of the coachroof, this boat is well-proportioned in size. The long side window visually reduces the height of the hull while the glazed dark superstructure (which encloses the dinette, the pilot station and a very bright galley), roof included, completes the stream-lining work. A work coming from the skillful hands of Christian Grande who, once again, proves to be as competent as original.

Powerboats: why Cranchi T36 is a crossover?

“Trawler” means abundant spaces, functional interiors and slow speed. If in the first characteristic we are in line with the category to which the boat belongs, the first contamination becomes clear when we go beyond. In terms of finishes, attention to detail and customization possibilities, this boat is a real small yacht. The possibility to have a third cabin with bunk beds makes it look like a traditional cruiser, considering that trawler generally prefer a little number of guests on board. Sleeping quarters are available in two different versions: two cabins and two bathrooms, with the master cabin forward and the twin-bedded Vip one amidships, and the version with one single bathroom and three cabins. In this case, if the dinette sofa is converted into a double berth, beds even become eight: a very good result for a boat of this category! The T36 has an overall length of almost 12 meters and a hull length of just 9.99 meters. Equally surprising are the two sailing souls of the latest creation from Piantedo. Displacing at 8/9 nm/h, as usual for a trawler, it can be as fast as coupé and therefore touch a top speed of 36 knots thanks to two Volvo Penta inboards. Hydrodynamic geometries are by Aldo Cranchi.


External influences are visible and, even if the yard seems to propose a house boat equipped with mountain bike on the roof, it is also true that the same roof (available in different colour options) can also be used as a sun deck.
