The CSL stands for Cranchi Sport Line, and just a glance at the layout shows the unique feature of the centre mounted helm. The centre mounted helm is a much more natural control point for any boat, By moving the cabin entry to the port side, the centre helm concept is workable. Not only that, but they have made the skipper’s seat large and comfortable, and have done the same for a companion seat to starboard. Note that there is room for the navigator to exit to starboard without having to climb over the driver. both seats swivel completely around allowing for turning the cockpit into an al fresco dining area with the simple addition of a pedestal table. Set the Bimini top and you’re all set for a fun lunch on the water.
Cranchi did a great job on the huge sunpad atop the electrically actuated engine hatch. The swim platform is also large enough to make using it a pleasure, rather than a balancing act, and notice how it extends well past the outdrives. It’s also hard not to love the high rails that surround the sunpad and walkthrough. Extending the windshield frame well aft into the cockpit was another smart move that adds an extra level of safety and helps keep guests dry.
One of the design tricks that Cranchi has used to be able to get the companionway to port and off the centerline, is to remove any semblance of side decks. That means you must pass through the windshield to get to the bow. Here we get even more Cranchi out-of-the-box thinking: note the asymmetrical windshield. On the port side it bows forward making it easier to get down the companionway, and on the starboard side it is more conventional going almost straight across, permitting a swing-open windscreen, for access forward.
