Christian Grande Chooses Retro Charm for New Cranchi E26 Classic

Inspired by classic Italian yacht design of years gone by, the Cranchi E26 Classic is a true beauty. The 25.75 foot/7.85 meter superyacht tender or daycruiser is the result of a close collaboration between designer Christian Grande and the Cantiere Nautico Cranchi shipyard which has been building boats in Italy since 1870. Her retro style powerfully combined with the latest technology as well as a cabin and toilet below deck give her owners the flexibility to spend more time on board.

“The E26 Classic comes from reading the style of classic motorboats in a new key,” commented Christian Grande. “The history of pleasure boating has been written by this type of boat since the 1950s and 60s, thanks to refined, distinguished enthusiasts who spent time in the seaside resorts – and let’s not forget the great lakes. The size and performance of these boats allowed their crew and passengers to travel rapidly from shore to shore and to enjoy pleasant days aboard.”

Her sporty exterior lines are enhanced by the stunning wraparound windscreen which offers protection from the elements and adds another touch of vintage style. At the stern there is a large sundeck with a large lounge pad and a teak swimming platform for impromptu dips. There is also a folding bimini top to shade the cockpit on hot summer days, an L-shaped seat and two pivoting seats which can be adjusted to face the bow or stern.
