Cranchi’s Eco Trawler 53 Yacht Opens Up New Horizons

The new Eco Trawler 53 Long Distance from the 144-year-old Italian shipbuilder Cranchi is engineered to maximize its range for extended excursions at sea. The yacht is the brand’s first trawler—a term typically used for fishing boats that drag trawling nets—and is equipped with two ultra-fuel-efficient Volvo IPS 600 engines that produce a combined 870 hp. When cruising at 10 knots, the yacht has a range of 667 miles, but when its speed is reduced to 7.5 knots, its range more than doubles to 1,500 miles. Fuel efficiency is further enhanced by the hull design and optimized weight distribution, minimizing drag. Under full power, the yacht is able to achieve a speed of 22 knots.

The main deck of the 53 Long Distance consists of the cockpit, saloon, and galley; the lower deck houses a full-beam aft master suite, a VIP cabin, and a guest cabin with twin bunks. The yacht’s flybridge is equipped with a forward sun pad and a small seating area aft. The aft section of the main deck can be customized to the owner’s specifications—options range from additional lounge furniture to storage for a tender or other small watercraft—and the deck’s bow is dominated by a forward sun pad that conceals a large storage space that is useful for long stints at sea.
