“You’re born versatile, you don’t become so”. This could be the motto of the Cranchi E26 Rider, which right from the start of the project interprets design in the service of versatility.
With the Cranchi E26 Rider, Christian Grande has reinterpreted the classic bowrider with outboard engine, making it contemporary and versatile, ideal at the same time for day trips or as a luxury tender for a yacht or villa.
“The Cranchi E26 Rider was born from a reinterpretation of the classic bowrider style,” explains Christian Grande. It’s a very well-balanced and refined “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.
“The classic bowrider,” explains Christian Grande, “is a type that has written the history of pleasure boating and is characterised by a spirit that is at once sporty, elegant and comfortable. In the E26 Rider, the on-board space develops harmoniously and is transformed to enhance conviviality”.
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. No limits to movement, no limits to freedom.
