2014 CROWNLINE Eclipse E6 26’4″
2014 Crownline Deckboat FULLY LOADED – 260 HOURS
Our 2014 Crownline Eclipse E6 is a hybrid of a sexy sporty bowrider and a comfortable and accommodating deck boat, molded into one.
With sleek lines and turn-on-a-dime performance, the Eclipse E6 is a unique deckboat that makes a long-lasting impression. The perks of this Crownline do not stop there. The design team finished off the Eclipse E 6 with a luxurious and accommodating interior that includes all of the features needed for making lifelong memories on the water.
The E6 is a leader in deckboats with a spacious layout and loads of creature comforts like
- an enclosed head with a porcelain vacuflush toilet and pressurized water
- 15 gallon freshwater tank
- Bluetooth stereo w/speakers
- 2-tone black/white hull
- Woodgrain dash
- Dual batteries
- Battery charger
- Transom and bow showers
and more. Deckboat extras like the “hot tub” style bow seating and front and rear swim platforms are all included on this luxury runabout.
All Crownline runabouts have a sleek, predatory look about them, and just because the E6’s designers built it with some extra room up front doesn’t mean it has to look like a soccer mom’s mode of transportation.
While the E6 is more like a deckboat than its great white shark–snouted Super Sport siblings, the E6 is more of a hybrid that retains a pleasing low-slung shearline that swoops down to the fully integrated swim platform. And twin standard color bands help guide the eyes from front to back to amplify the slimming effect. With all that extra room up front, the bowrider seats are extra wide and have Crownline’s signature feature hot tub recliner seats with a raised area for one’s thighs to provide the ultimate in ergo-friendly seating. Because there’s extra width at the bow, there’s a rear-facing bow seat that’s perfect for ski spotting. Underneath this bow seat is an Igloo marine cooler, but you have to remove the seat bottom to access it. The extra width gives it room enough for a recessed bow boarding section that is padded for comfort and extra grip, and it has a bow boarding ladder under a hatch for beach landings.
With its 300 hp MerCruiser MAG MPI 350 engine to push the beefy 5,400-pound hull, its performance would be surprising to someone unfamiliar with the hull’s attributes. Thanks to its Delta Performance Pad, which is a flatter section on the centerline at the stern, the E6 gets on plane in 3.2 seconds with minimal bowrise. The F.A.S.T. TAB hull has vented chines, which introduce air under the hull to unstick it from the water’s surface tension for less drag, which allows it to reach 30 mph in 7.7 seconds and achieve a top speed of 49.4 mph.
The E6’s hull starts with a sharp 39 degrees of angle at its forward entry but tapers off to a more moderate 19 degrees at the stern (not counting the Delta Pad), giving it a good blend of slicing ability up front where it meets the waves but not so sharp at the stern, which would reduce its side-to-side stability. Its hefty hull gives the hull a luxury car–like feel and oversized reverse chines do a great job of containing spray. The vented hull-side chines help with improved acceleration and speed, and the reduced friction help the E6 turn easily. Aided by power steering, one can fling it in a hard corner with ease, and yet it tracks very well and in a predictable fashion — not always the case with vented hulls.
The decent wake the E6 plows up at slower planing speeds makes it a good choice for watersports. An in-floor ski locker gives you plenty of board room.
Seating is plentiful, with room for five up front, two in the twin captain’s buckets and at least a half dozen on the cockpit L-lounge and abbreviated sofa behind the skipper. Twin cockpit table mounts with angled pedestals to secure into the seat bases to give more legroom on the deck, or you can option up a wet bar to replace the small sofa behind the captain. The rear sunpad has a three-position backrest.
The standard helm station is well equipped and features a rich faux-wood dash and a matching upscale sport wheel. It comes with standard gauges that are usually options, such as an hour meter and a depthfinder with a temperature gauge that shows both air and water temp. Our boat is decked out with a flush-mount Standard Horizon GPS color chart plotter (CPF190i), LENCO trim tabs with digital indicators, a VHF radio, and a JENSEN bluetooth stereo with speakers.
