The space-conscious layout of the Cranchi Zaffiro 36 begins in the cockpit, where the L-shape settee flips forward to allow access to the engine compartment. A molded step and and a hollow under the helm give more headroom to the full-beam master stateroom below. The entrance to the interior is to port via a garage-style aluminum sliding door.
As you move down into the main cabin, what will strike you, besides the sharp contrast between the light teak-and-holly sole and the almost ebony wenge doors and trim, is the irregular shape of the room. It's built for function and comfort, and although its angles may be slightly nontraditional, they make access to the benches, drawers, and latches a snap and also enlarge the VIP.
