innovative and productive international marine designers. The new partnership with Christian Grande DesignWorks is based above all on a spontaneous rapprochement characterized by mutual comprehension and common values and personalities established between the designer and the proprietors of the shipyard.
The result is a rare elective affinity, both personal and professional, that has contributed to the creation of the necessary confidence to entrust the future of the yard’s distinctive character to the designer from Parma, already well noted for his prolific creation of successful designs in different areas.
Christian Grande comments: “I am honored and confidant in this new partnership. Cranchi is a very sound yard, equipped with advanced state-of-the-art production systems in the medium-large size nautical series production sector. I believe that we both can grow and create unique products, because at the base of our rapport we have shared values and visions, which means synergy and winning approaches in all the creative phases for new boats with a high level of quality and aesthetics.”
