E26 Classic

La dolce vita

Included in the shortlist of finalists for the Motor Boat Awards 2021, the E26 Classic is an eight-meter day cruiser with a sporty character and a unique and sophisticated style that strikes a perfect balance between vintage suggestions and contemporary essentiality. The unique style of this model by no means excludes its versatility. On the contrary, the E26 Classic lends itself perfectly to being both a day cruiser and a luxury tender. The distinctly vertical foredeck that characterizes the E26 Classic’s profile conveys the boat’s classic and sporty character from the very first glance. The boat’s profile and helm station promise sportiness, while the feeling of well-being on board is enhanced by refined and elegant details.

There are strong nods to tradition, such as the teak foredeck, which evokes the classic heritage of wooden boats and provides a visual counterpoint to the stern platform also covered in teak. And there is certainly no shortage of innovative and functional solutions. Comfort is assured starting with the large aft sundeck that covers the engine compartment in which a retractable awning is also housed that can provide shade to the cockpit if needed. The dinette amidships is served by an L-shaped seat that gives continuity to the aft sundeck and two pivoting seats (for pilot on the right and co-pilot on the left) that can face forward during sailing and aft during times of conviviality.

Accentuating the sporty character of the E26 Classic is the wrap-around, full-beam windshield that offers protection for the pilot and those alongside. In the center of the windshield is an opening that gives practical access to the forward deck.

Below the same deck is a small cabin and toilet compartment to ensure a comfortable stay on board throughout the day and, if desired, at night.
