E26 Rider

Freedom, in great style

The E26 Rider is an innovative bowrider, equipped with an outboard engine. The stem and fluid lines of the hull convey a sense of sportiness and elegance: a contemporary classic, with a surprising versatility. Day cruiser or luxury tender: it could be either. You could even call her a “luxury day tender”.

The bow deck comprises a lounge area with a floor on the same level as the cockpit. It can be easily and safely reached via an opening in the centre of the boat, even while the boat is moving. Two opposite facing sofas, on either wall, can be used either as seats or chaise-longues.

The distribution of the spaces flow harmoniously through the centre of the boat and the cockpit is the true heart of this yacht: an elegant, and surprisingly spacious, area with functional solutions that offers maximum freedom to those on board. In perfect symmetry, there are two large wall sofas facing each other, while the pilot and co-pilot have swivel chairs that can turn towards the sofas to create an extension of the entertainment area. To the left of the navigation area, there’s a small sink and restroom.

At the stern, the outboard engine is located between two decks: an elegant add-on used as a beach area, both facilitating access on board - which is safer and more practical- and access in and out of the water, assisted by a retractable ladder. Unlimited movement, unlimited freedom.
