Cranchi’s E26 Classic brings back the joys of 1950’s yachting

Cranchi E26 Classic

Born from a unique collaboration between the Italian watercraft maker Cantiere Nautico Cranchi and yacht designer Christian Grande, the Cranchi E26 Classic will turn heads with a wonderful combination of the old Italian style of the 1950’s and modern tech. Sophisticated and powerful at the same time, the E26 Classic is perfect for the open seas or grand lakes.

The 7.85 meter long sporty yacht can be powered either by a D4 diesel which can deliver a good 300 hp or by a V6 petrol which outputs 280 hp. The characteristics make it apt as a superyacht tender as well.

Christian Grande made a wonderful job at bringing back the old joys of yachting and combining those vintage traits with more modern ones. You can see that clearly in the wrap-around windscreen, the vertical steam and the clear cutoff side windows. The full-beam completes the picture of sophistication and the teak trim perfectly contrasts the bold silver body of the Cranchi E26 classic.

The large sundeck at the rear makes you want to spend all your vacation days on the water, taking advantage of every moment spent floating under the sun.

The central part of the Cranchi E26 Classic speaks of style and luxury, featuring an L-shaped seat opposing the captain’s console and two swivel chairs that will provide comfort for a full day on the water. The cabin below the deck, featuring a bed and toilet, is neat and minimalist but comfortable enough for spending a few nights away from the land.

Cranchi are keeping the exact price to themselves for now, but orders are already available through their dealers worldwide.
