Cranchi three new models equipped with Volvo Penta engines and IPS to debut in Cannes


E-52Italian boat-builder Cranchi launched three new yachts belonging to the new series “Evoluzione”, two flybridge vessels and one hard top boat, all equipped with Volvo Penta engines and innovative IPS (Inboard Performance System) propulsion systems: such new models will have their debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival.
“We have created our new Evoluzione range to push boundaries and transcend all limits, we constantly evolve and look to the future, and these three new models break the rules in yachting.” said Paola Cranchi, sales and marketing manager at Cranchi. On the choice of equipping the vessels with Volvo Penta Engines, she commented: “We chose Volvo Penta’s engines and IPS because the engine is always at the heart of a yacht and affects the way it cruises. IPS is an evolution and it is the future. It is easy to use and is supported by all the electronics.”
All three of the new yachts feature three master cabins, two bathrooms, and a fourth cabin for additional guests or crew members. The E52 F and S models can accommodate seven passengers and 12 occasional guests on board; while the E56 F hosts eight overnight passengers and can carry 14 people during the day.
The E52 F flybridge and E52 S hard top yachts are both powered by twin Volvo Penta D8-IPS700s; while the E56 F flybridge yacht can be powered by either twin D11-IPS800s or D11-IPS900s.
The yachts are also equipped with Volvo Penta’s Electronic Vessel Control (EVC) – which integrates engine, drive systems and function controls in one interface – and the pioneering Glass Cockpit System, which allows the driver to customize operational functions.
Volvo Penta’s new 8-liter engine matches with requirements for low weight and high power, while its oldest IPS drive has been optimized to fit perfectly with the D8. The propulsion system is available in two models: D8-IPS700 has a power output of 550hp; while D8-IPS800 runs at 600hp. The company’s 11-liter engine is available in 625hp, 670 and 725hp, and each can be matched with Volvo Penta IPS. IPS provides up to 30 per cent better fuel efficiency (when compared to a stand-alone inboard engine), as well as lower emissions, and reduced noise and vibration. Available in twin, triple or quadruple installation, the individually steerable pods enable precision steering and docking.
“Our new D8-IPS and the 11-liter engine matched with IPS are superb propulsion systems for Cranchi’s new yachts,” says Nicola Pomi, marine sales manager at Volvo Penta in Italy and Spain. “The engines and IPS drives combine perfectly to provide excellent performance for cruising at planning speeds while retaining full control through excellent manoeuvring. We have worked well with Cranchi to find the best performance solutions for their beautiful new boats.”
Volvo Penta attends the Cannes Yachting Festival and is available at stand Jetée179. Cranchi will be at stands PAN010 and PAN212.
