E26 Classic

The dolce vita

The E26 Classic is a sporty 8 metre day cruiser, with a unique and sophisticated style: a perfect balance between vintage and contemporary essentiality.

The unique style of this model does not make it any less versatile. Contrarily, the E26 Classic can be both the perfect day cruiser and luxury tender.


Traditionally original

The distinctly vertical stem, which characterises the yacht’s profile, determines, at first glance, the classic and sporty nature of this model.

The profile and navigation area have an undoubtedly sporty style, while comfort and wellness on board are enhanced by refined and elegant furnishings.

 This model is particularly traditional, demonstrated by the teak clad bow deck, recalling the classic heritage of wooden boats which acts as a visual counterpoint to the teak-clad stern platform. And of course, innovative and functional solutions are not lacking. Comfort is always assured: this model boasts a large sun deck covering the engine compartment, which stores a retractable awning that can be used to provide shade in the cockpit when needed. The seating area in the centre of the boat includes an L-shaped sofa that acts as an extension to the stern sun deck as well as two swivel chairs (for the pilot on the right hand side and the co-pilot on the left). These can be bow-facing when sailing and stern-facing when socialising.

The wraparound, full-beam windscreen enhances the sportiness of the E26 Classic and acts as a protection to the pilot and neighbour. At the centre of the windscreen is an opening providing access to the bow deck.

Under the bow deck there’s a small cabin and restroom to make your stay on board comfortable, day or night.


Your experience on board and sensations at sea

The E26 Classic is a noble yacht, as could be expected from a boat building company with a history as important as Cranchi's. She’s also a high performing boat, built using innovative manufacturing methods which skilfully combine natural and technological materials. This model is adapted to off-shore sailing as well as navigation at sea and requires minimum maintenance, even after an entire season on the water.


Classic or Rider?

From the same concept that inspired the E26 Classic, the E26 Rider is born: a bowrider with an outboard engine, ideal as a tender to serve a larger yacht or villa or for day trips: it’s up to you.
