The Cranchi Smeraldo 37 is a boat for the young at heart, spirit and mind where the pursuit of sun, sea and fun knows no boundaries.
The Smeraldo 37
This 10.92 metre express cruiser is on the water with a 3.80 metre beam and is powered by the factory upgraded Volvo Penta twin D6 EVC/DP 310-hp diesel engines.
This Smeraldo feels like it’s flying above the water, from 0 to almost 40 knots takes just a couple of seconds and cruising her on the river Maas I did with 30 knots easily. Having this in mind I can say this Smeraldo 37 is perfect for a couple that wants to see an entire country within one holiday only. She’s just fast and because of her high output Volvo’s very fuel efficient. Her cockpit is designed for comfortable day cruising for three couples, and sleepovers for two couples.
On Deck Topside, the design is sleek and elegant. Her curves are gentle and look nautical. The Cranchi Smeraldo 37 has a very large swim platform and above that this example benefits from having the expensive Besenzoni gangway/dinghy lift with remote. The platform tapers inward as it moves aft, with teak inserts and the gangway in the middle breaking up the expanse. In any case, I like it and it provides a lot of space for all sorts of watersports activities, and is big enough for a tender. I’m also happy to report that I found no design errors (round chart tables, helms where you can’t stand up, foredecks that are impossible to walk on, etc.) on the Cranchi Smeraldo 37. Look closely on our pictures and you will see that the seats are all large, and that passageways are ample.
The portside wetbar. Finally, someone has solved the problem of getting to the cans behind the bottles in the front of the refer without them all tumbling onto the deck. And like all things Italian, the wet bar has a rounded fiberglass cover over the sink and the counter so that everything looks smooth, neat and well-designed. An outside fridge is also housed inside.
Below we find an expanse of deck covered in a light-colored hardwood. There will be plenty of room for guests to get around without bumping into each other as they use the galley, go to their cabin, the head, and the settee. This is good design, and made possible because Cranchi has pushed the interior as far outboard as it possibly could. Again Cranchi has shown its self-confidence by choosing functionality, acknowledging that we are on a boat, after all. By doing so they have created at least three inches more of sole space.
As you can plainly see in the pictures, the interior design and decor is top of the notch. We leave the soft, rounded, lovely curves of the deck and going below are greeted by just the same – an interior that meets the rest of the boats quality. Finest crème leather combined with the light-coloured woods, earth tone-coloured fabrics, and the contrasting teak brown flooring below the galley counter are precisely what is coming out of the interior design studios.
The double berth is placed in the centre which is exactly to my taste. I like it because it is a good use of space. It opens up the cabin and creates more sole space so two people can get by each other. Plenty storage and a full length dress mirror are found inside this luxurious cabin.
This cabin has some measure of head room as you walk in and it is pretty typical of what you find in boats of this type. The cabin is full beam which is nice and makes it super roomy. The offset to port bed can be made up as two singles or an insert (comes with the boat) can be added to make it a king size bed or perfect playroom for kids.
If you are the kind of person who doesn’t want to have the same kind of boat as everyone else in your marina, and you like the excitement of a well-executed Italian design and build, then you should look at our Cranchi Smeraldo 37. As you can see in the pictures, she is an exciting boat and it should be fun to own something so different.
