The Ranieri International branded family of inflatable boats once again demonstrates the ability to adapt and follow an evolving market. The latest test is the new Ranieri Cayman 45.0 Cruiser, which at 14 meters will be the largest boat ever built by Ranieri International. His official debut? At the Genoa Boat Show 2022 from September 22 to 27.

Ranieri’s family of maxi-dinghies had initially seen the Cayman 38.0 Executive debut, followed in 2019 by the Cayman 35.0. It has been five years since the debut, but over time the number of owners has gone up and so have the demands, particularly in terms of size. To satisfy increasingly demanding customers, the shipyard is now ready to launch the new Ranieri Cayman 45.0 Cruiser. At 14 meters, it will be the largest vessel ever built by Ranieri International. In terms of power, too, this Ranieri dinghy is preparing to be record-breaking: the test model will have a total of 1,350 horsepower given by three Mercury 450R outboards.

Like all Ranieri International models, this new maxi-dinghy was designed and built using the Fully – Developed Cockpit System technique, which consists of building the boat by grouping the deck, cabin bottom, technical accommodations for the fuel tank, water tank, and storage lockers in a single mold.

Aboard this new 14-meter dinghy, the design immediately provides a large sundeck aft with significant space underneath to be able to accommodate dinghy, motor and water toys. Proceeding toward the bow, one will find a cockpit with a retractable double electric table. Those on board, depending on their needs, will decide whether to have a large table for eight people, a second sundeck than aft, or two seats facing the direction of travel. This area will be served by all that is needed to make for a top-notch day on the water, so presumably a galley, cutting board, refrigerator, etc. The helm station will include a large seating area with four individual boolster systems with the ability to navigate either sitting or standing.

The Cayman 45.0 Cruiser is equipped as standard with a Hard-Top designed to protect the living area of the boat by creating a “permanent” shaded area, but also to expand the covered area with the use of a canopy with carbon poles. In the bow, however, is a chaise longue for two guests with cup holders built into the upholstery and sundeck.

It was obvious from the name that interior spaces were very important in this project, and the anticipations from the construction site confirm this assumption. What is below deck on the Ranieri Cayman 45.0 Cruiser? The sleeping area is designed for four people in two separate rooms, plus a toilet compartment with a shower stall. Ranieri International focused particularly on on-board brightness, an essential element in making the interior of a powerboat more livable.

How do you navigate? While waiting to test it firsthand at the Genoa Boat Show we report what the shipyard says after the “dress rehearsal” before taking the boat to Genoa.

“From the very first acceleration, in fact, the Cayman 45.0 Cruiser powered by a triple Mercury 450 R with Joystick system and Active Trim, highlighted its technical prowess by easily passing all the acceleration, speed and handling tests to which it was subjected. Immediately the feeling that is established with the maxi-rib, from the very beginning we had the feeling of a dinghy that, despite its impressiveness and power, puts the driver and guests at ease, showing all its qualities of lightness and agility even at very high speeds, enveloping you with a strong sense of comfort and safety, thanks also to the technologies used, including the SIMRAD home automation system and the HERTZ stereo system.”
