Cranchi E26 Rider: the bowrider reinterpreted by Christian Grande

Design at the service of versatility, for day trips or as a luxury tender serving a yacht or villa
“The E26 Rider comes from reading the style of classic bowriders in a new key,” explains Christian Grande. "A boat that has written the history of pleasure boating and is characterised by a spirit that is sporty, elegant and comfortable at the same time. The space on board develops harmoniously and transforms itself to enhance conviviality."

The Cranchi E26 Rider is an innovative bowrider equipped with an outboard engine. Versatility is its distinguishing trait. Christian Grande has reinterpreted a great classic, making it contemporary and versatile, ideal for day trips or as a luxury tender serving a yacht or villa - a true “luxury day tender”.

The bow deck houses a lounge area with a floor on the same level as the cockpit. The bridge is easily accessible through an opening in the middle of the boat and can accommodate guests safely even with the boat in motion. Two opposing sofas, one positioned towards the right side and the other towards the left, can be used either as seats or as chaise longues

With a very smooth development, the distribution of spaces continues amidships: the cockpit reveals itself as the true heart of the boat, an elegant area that is surprising in terms of its size, with functional solutions that leave maximum freedom to people living on board

With perfect symmetry, two large sofas face each other on the two sides, while the pilot and co-pilot seats are pivoting and can be oriented towards the sofas to further extend the area dedicated to conviviality. A sink and a toilet compartment are next to the piloting console, on the left.

At the stern, the outboard motor is flanked on both sides by two bathing platforms. These elegant swim platforms give direct and easy access to the water or the shore, also aided by a convenient retractable ladder. So, no limits to movement, no limits to freedom.
