***VERY HIGH SPEC - IN FIRST CLASS CONDITION - NEW EQUIPMENT FOR 2018****
This Cranchi Zaffiro 34 'Seeds' is a superb example of this capable and stylish Italian Express Cruiser registered in Portugal and is VAT paid.
'Seeds' is a serious cruiser with a sharp entry deep V hull and twin 230 hp engines driving through Volvo DuoProp sterndrives which offer great advantages over shaft drives. The hull shape gives lateral stability and the chines ensure water and spray is thrown down and away from the hull as the boat slices through the swells.
Since new 'Seeds has had three owners, the first of which kept her only for a year before passing to her next owner who had her for the next 17 years. Her current owner boat her in 2017 and is only selling her to upgrade to a larger version. He has spent the last year fitting her out with NEW leather upholstery everywhere (inside and out) and top quality equipment for 2018 including radar. She also boasts a genset, and air conditioning/heating and all the usual home comforts including satellite TV in the saloon and both cabins.
Now ready for her new owner, we are sure you will not find a better equipped and better maintained example of this 'jewel' in the Cranchi crown.
We now welcome all serious enquiries and viewing requests.
Below decks the cabinetry and panelling is finished in pale cherrywood, which coupled with the cream colours 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 bench tops, 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 for'ard 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 twin beds, 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 electric flush toilet and a showering area.
Topside the main and aft cockpits are designed for entertaining. The skipper's seat and helm position has full instrumentation, a large, easy to read compass, adjustable sport steering wheel. 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 teak-laid 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. For'ard of the curved glass windscreen is a pair of sunpads and two double fender holders mounted on the high bowrail. This rail is also split to make exiting onto a beach or the likes easier.
'Seeds has has a massive refurbishment for 2018 by her current owner who describes her as 'better than new'. This includes the following:
