Welcome and thank you for looking.
For reluctant sale, due to changing work commitments, is my Cranchi
Start 21 (1993) with the 4.6L V6 Volvo Penta petrol engine and a Volvo Penta
DP-C1 duo-prop drive.
She is moored at a beautiful and friendly marina on Loch Lomond, the
finest stretch of water in the UK with 26 miles of stunning Scottish freshwater
loch to explore.
Checkout my YouTube channel for some short videos:-
The marina has all the facilities you need; CCTV security, shore power,
fuel pumps, toilets and showers, maintenance facilities, ample private parking
and a cosy rustic hotel, pub and restaurant all on site.
She also comes with a launch and recovery trailer so you can take her out
of the water at the end of the season for hull cleaning or maintenance.
The Kevlar reinforced deep V hull is in amazing condition, is waxed and
polished regularly and has never seen anti-foul.
The DP-C1 duo-prop drive is one of the most reliable ever made and, as
you can see from the photos, is still in its original paint.
The wraparound tinted screen is all original with no cracks.
All the fittings are chrome and are factory fitted from new by Cranchi
ie bow rails, windlass, cleats, etc.
The fuel tank is a standard stainless steel tank and holds 180 litres of
The previous owner stripped the whole interior of the hull bare and laid
two layers of fibreglass with West System epoxy over the entire floor, overlaid
with flexi-teak which should last forever. At the same time the inside of the
cabin, seats and sunbed were relined with tan ostrich vinyl. He also
fitted electric blue LEDs to the lower interior that look amazing at night and
Fusion Marine speakers that run from a Sony head unit with Radio, CD, USB and
Also fitted is a Garmin VHF marine radio flush with the dash and a
Garmin 450S GPS plotter linked to a thru hull Garmin transducer for
Navigation lights, bilge pump, interior LED lights and electric windlass
are all wired in to switches on the dash/cockpit along with dials for speed,
hours, revs, fuel, temperature and battery voltage.
The boat has a forward cuddy with a foam mattress so could sleep two
people but is very small and more useful for storing equipment.
The engine has 390 hrs from new, runs very sweetly indeed and is capable
of 43 knots (50mph). The risers/manifolds, water pump and impellor were changed
3 years ago at 360 hours. She has been diligently serviced and gets new drive
oil, engine oil, oil filter and fuel/water separator every 20 hours.
Recently replaced were spark plugs, distributor cap/rotor, fuel
pump and alternator and there is a spare oil filter.
The hydraulic rams for the power trim have been recently serviced with
new bellows fitted at the same time. She trims beautifully on the loch in any
weather and is a joy to drive. Props are also in great condition.
She has a rear boarding ladder and swim step platform (finished in
flexi-teak) and an auxiliary motor mount bolted to the swim step for
a small outboard.
Her cockpit cover was repaired, washed and reproofed by Owen Sails before
the winter and does not leak.

THE TRAILER IS UNBRAKED (NOT ROAD LEGAL) SO FLATBED TRANSPORT WILL BE
REQUIRED. I CAN PROVIDE A QUOTE/ARRANGE IF REQUIRED
There are a couple of minor issues which I have not had time to address,
the temp gauge is not working but I have a new one on order and hope to fit
that shortly. Also one of the air struts for the engine bay lid has failed. There is also a small hole in one of the seat covers which can be patched easily.
I will require a 10% deposit by bank transfer within 48 hours of the end
