Company History
The company was originally set up on the banks if Lake Como by Giovanni Cranchi in his first workshop in 1866, however the company wasn’t registered until 1870. Cranchi was making boats on commission for the fishermen, and the transport of goods and passengers.
In 1932 Giovanni Cranchis grandson who was also called Giovanni purchased a factory that had be previously used by a dye works that became bankrupt, and set up his boatyard. Its was here that he began building his first vessels. His passion for great detail, careful selection of materials, producing techniques and remarkable finish meant that some beautiful Cranchi boats where created. When the war started Giovanni was forced to leave Italy until 1952, and upon his return he resumed production along with his children.
This is when the boatyard in Brienno began to see the productions of the Taunius, Faster, Sbarazzino, the Dinghy and another number of wooden vessels. As time went by they realised that it was time to expand, in 1970 Aldo Cranchi set up the company in Valtellina.
In 1972 1,550 Pilotina boats are produced, from the success of this new model. In 1973 the model Scout is produced and over 5 years 500 of these boats are produced
Over the next few years Cranchi undergoes a large expansion and in the 1980s Cranchi sees its new boatyard in Piantedo with an area of 20,000sq.m. In 1997 Cranchi gained its own test centre called the Cranchi Marine Test Centre. It is here that they are able to carry out their own water tests of the prototypes in their own private sea area.
In 2000 Cranchi sees further expansion in a new factory in San Giorgio Di Nogaro, and in 2003 another factory is opened in Colico. This is set up for efficient production. In 2005 the project for plant 4 gets under way in Rogolo which will be set up to produce Cranchi boats of more than 50 feet.
In 2006 Cranchi becomes an S.p.A.
