Project: Cranchi E26 Classic

Getting closer to its 150th anniversary Cranchi present the project for the E26 Classic, a small cruiser roundabout designed by Christian Grande. The bow that characterizes the E26 Classic profile transmits from the first glance a sporty character of the boat. The lines of the boat and the helm position promise sportiness while the feeling on board is enhanced by the distinctive and unique style of this model. The references to tradition are very strong, such as the teak used on the bow deck which recalls the classic heritage of wooden boats and acts as a visual counterpoint to the aft deck also covered in teak. There is certainly no shortage of innovative and functional solutions. Comfort is assured starting from the large aft sundeck that covers the engine compartment in which the bimini can be placed which can guarantee shade to the cockpit if necessary. The center dinette is served by an L-shaped settee that gives continuity to the stern sundeck, and two pivoting seats that are directed forwards while navigating and can turn to stern when moored. The E26 Classic has a wraparound windscreen that offers protection to the pilot and co-pilot. At the center of the windshield there is an access to the fore-deck. Under the fore-deck there is a small cabin and a toilet compartment to assure a comfortable stay on board throughout the day and night. The Cranchi E26 Classic will be powered by three engine choices from a single Volvo 300hp diesel, to 280hp and or 350hp gasoline option. Cranchi will also offer an outboard bow rider version of the same model titled E26 Rider. Both models will be officially unveiled in September during the Cannes boat show.
