Cranchi Boat Builders Since 1870
As with any new business, even in the 1800s, the flow of problems to overcome seemed never-ending. However, the young shipyard made it through two World Wars, survived the ebbs and floods of changing economic tides and transitional government meddling, and came out the other side stronger and larger.
Now, they make yachts that are highly valued around the world, and the Cranchi name is synonymous with advanced Italian boatbuilding and unparalleled marine technology. But there’s more to our story than just a family business that began small and worked its way to the top. Our starting point, unusually, was the bottom. Literally!
