The dolce vita

The Cranchi E26 Classic is a sporty 8 meter day cruiser, with a unique and sophisticated style: a perfect balance between vintage and contemporary essentiality. Its unique style does not make it any less versatile, it can be both the perfect day cruiser and luxury tender.

Traditionally original

Its distinctly vertical stem determines the classic and sporty nature of this model. Its teak clad bow deck will remind you of the classic heritage of wooden boats, though innovative and functional solutions are not lacking. Comfort is always assured: this model boasts a large sun deck covering the engine compartment, which stores a retractable awning that can be used to provide shade in the cockpit when needed. The seating area in the center of the boat includes an L-shaped sofa that acts as an extension to the stern sun deck as well as two swivel chairs. These can be bow-facing when sailing and stern-facing when socialising. Under the bow deck there’s a small cabin and restroom to make your stay on board comfortable, day or night.
