1997 Cranchi Zaffiro 34 Cruiser in Chester, Connecticut

Stock #158064

The Cranchi Zaffiro 34 is a classic Italian thoroughbred from a family firm with almost 150 years' experience of building quality boats. This sports cruiser can comfortably accommodate a family or guests for an overnight or weekend stay in a spacious owners' cabin and guest cabin with twin berths that can convert to a double.

There is ample space above and below deck for up to 10 people, making the Cranchi Zaffiro 34 an ideal boat for a party. A large swim platform provides space for watersports activities and is big enough for a tender.

The Cranchi 'Zaffiro' (it means sapphire in Italian) 34 truly is a jewel in the crown of the Cranchi stable. She's powered by twin 230hp Volvo, driving through Volvo Duo Prop sterndrives.

These give some performance benefits over shaft drives, even if they are not quite as maneuverable around the marina. And one of these advantages, rarely considered by boat buyers, is the lack of exhaust smoke from the legs around the stern.

To appreciate the Zaffiro 34's excellent handling ability, you only have to take a look at her hull its classic Bluewater. She boasts a sharp entry deep-vee hull, with oversized chines that extend well forward, all the way to the bow. These control the hull's lateral stability and even though the hull isn't overly flared at the bow, the chines ensure water and spray is thrown down and away from the hull as the boat slices through the swells.

Out on the water with a clean bottom, the hull/engine combination recorded 12.4 knots at 1800rpm; and 34 knots at 3600rpm. With a dry weight of 6100kg, this boat is no lightweight, but this weight also contributes to the hull's excellent ride over rough water and helps eliminate noise being transmitted through the hull.

The ride is stable and surefooted. The boat tracks straight, even in a following sea and the bow reacts almost instantly to even minute movements of the helm. Throttle controls are smooth, as is the entire operation of the boat when underway. Smooth, hassle-free and extremely user-friendly.

Cranchi blends its use of materials and textures perfectly to offer classic elegance in a comfortable, solid and easy to maintain the environment.

The cabinetry and paneling is finished in Cherrywood, but unusually, this is an original pale shade, not at all what we have become used to in a Cherrywood finishes. But its paleness, coupled with the cream colors of the walls and roof, add to the light and airy feel of the main saloon.

The below decks area is divided into three completely separate compartments saloon, forward stateroom and aft stateroom. Both staterooms have doors to seal them off from the main saloon for total privacy.

The saloon has a large U-shaped lounge to port with ample cupboard storage above and a stylish, shaped dining table. A compact galley is to starboard, which features a stove, fridge, sink unit, Corian benchtops, microwave oven and plenty of under bench storage.

There are two opening hatches in the saloon roof and two portholes to bathe the saloon in natural light. Up forward the main stateroom has an enormous island double bed, hanging locker, wide storage shelves and enough room around the bed to make it easy to climb into.

The aft cabin is surprisingly roomy and features a double bed, small lounge, and a hanging locker and, like the rest of the 34, it's lavishly finished. The head is also surprisingly roomy with a vanity unit, opening port, overhead cupboards and a reasonably sized loo and a showering area.

Topside the main and aft cockpits are designed for entertaining. The skipper's seat and helm position should keep even the most fastidious captain satisfied with full instrumentation, a large, and easy to read compass, adjustable sport steering wheel and plenty of open dash space to mount an extensive electronics package of the new owners choosing.

To port is a large L-shaped lounge that can accommodate four people in comfort and allows the skipper to stay in the conversation once underway.

The rear cockpit has a sizable U-shaped lounge surrounding a rectangular table, which is easily removed and stowed when not in use. It's the ideal place for an evening meal as the sun sinks below the horizon.

`On the starboard side, there's a sink/tap unit and cabinet. Out on the swim platform, there's ample room to move around when launching water-sport toys, there's a retractable swim ladder to make getting out of the water a lot easier and a hot/cold water shower to wash off the sand so it doesn't get traipsed through the entire boat.

Forward of the curved glass windscreen is a pair of sun pads for those wishing to soak up a few rays and two double fender holders mounted on the high bow rail. This rail is also split to make exiting onto a beach or the likes easier.

This Cranchi Zaffiro 34 represents good value for money for a cruiser in its class. It offers Italian styling, superb performance and comfortable accommodation for family cruising. If you are looking for an exciting boat that offers practicality as well, the Cranchi Zaffiro 34 should be on your list.
