October 17, 2017

WEST FRANKFORT, IL, 10/13/17 -Introducing Crownline’s newest crossover sterndrive, the Eclipse E27. This versatile boat contradicts the typical style and performance you expect when you think “deckboat.” Crownline’s design team created a deck that maximizes every square inch with all the attributes needed for comfort and entertainment. Then, they melded this beautifully functional deck with Crownline’s proven F.A.S.T. Tab hull design (think on-water sports car) for a responsive, exciting ride, superb handling and the sexiest profile on the water. Throttle up, you are going to be blown away by the responsive, exciting ride of the Crownline E27!

The fact that the E27 weighs more than other manufacturer’s models of this size should be noted. This additional weight attests to the fact that Crownline has not cut any corners in the design and production of the boat to cut costs. Crownline’s superior hull design is built to handle rough waters with ease, with no compromise to safety, performance or fuel efficiency.

Chances are, someone you will bring boating will want to participate in some type of watersport. The E27 is perfect for tubing, skiing, wakeboarding and knee boarding. The stainless-steel ski tow rail with eye is standard, and you can also equip your boat with an optional wakeboard tower for more serious riders.


The E27 transom features a full wrap-around swim platform with a soft touch mat for easy, safe boarding, or for use when taking off and putting on your skis and wakeboards. The four-step, stainless-steel ladder makes getting out of the water easy after a swim. The standard handheld transom shower is handy to rinse your feet, or cool off when you don’t want to jump in the water. Crownline’s trademarked Social Swim™ transom splash-proof Wet Sounds stereo speakers deliver amazing sound, especially pleasing while enjoying the versatile aft electric sun lounge seat. A touch of the finger takes you from sitting to reclining, or all the way flat for a perfect sun lounge.

The Crownline E27 was designed and built to meet or exceed quality and safety standards set by the US Coast Guard. The cockpit is easily accessed through the gated transom walk-thru, a great safety feature for young boaters. Additional safety attributes include strategically placed stainless-steel grab handles, pop-up cleats, deep freeboards, flush-fit bow walk-thru door and dual deluxe bucket seats with flip-up bolsters for increased ability to see when the situation requires.

The beautifully appointed, hand-wrapped dash features a Raymarine 7” highly visible touchscreen with sonar and engine information display. The black diamond steering wheel is a beautiful new feature for the 2018 model year.


Comfortable and spacious, the J-shaped cockpit area is perfect for entertaining, with plenty of room to move about. The portable side-mount table conveniently and easily mounts in the cockpit or bow for a leisurely lunch or romantic dinner. The table conveniently stows away in the undermount cockpit storage drawer. There’s an abundance of additional storage areas for all your gear and boating toys, nicely finished with an impact resistant, non-marring coating for durability.

Women and children will appreciate the E27’s impressive, oversized head compartment. It is fully enclosed for privacy and spacious enough to use for a changing room as well. Beautifully appointed, it features custom cabinetry with a granite countertop, electric flush marine toilet, a handheld shower, porta potti and an opening portlight. And there’s a handy insert in the inside of the head door with netting to safely stow away your personal items.

Crownline’s trademarked “Hot Tub” style bow lounge seats feature flip-up arm rests for maximum comfort. Stainless steel cupholders and grab handles are within easy reach, and there is a massive amount of storage beneath the seats. The forward storage compartment conveniently stows away an anchor and rope while not in use.


Whether you are anchored off in a cove, or cruising the lake, the stereo is typically one of the most utilized features on a boat. All music enthusiasts will be very happy with the standard stereo on the E27. The Kicker KMC10 stereo has an IP67 waterproof rating and features a full color LCD display, variable dimmer with day and night mode, AM/FM weatherband multi-regional tuner, USB w/iPod, iPhone & Android charge, AUX input and Bluetooth. And, there are EIGHT splash-proof Wet Sounds speakers throughout the boat, including the two previously mentioned at the transom.
