PRESS RELEASE – ECLIPSE E23 XS
Escape to the calmness and serenity of the water on the exciting new Crownline Eclipse E23 XS outboard, built for guaranteed hours of relaxation and fun all summer long! The highly successful release of its sister boat, the E23 sterndrive, led to the production of this innovative outboard version. Intelligently designed and loaded up with amenities that are normally optional on our competitor’s comparable models – all STANDARD on the E23 XS. And you can rest assured that no corners were cut in its design and production – it is more than 1000 pounds larger and heavier than any other boat in its peer group! Crownline’s superior hull design is built to handle rough waters with ease and without compromise to performance or fuel efficiency. The patented F.A.S.T. Tab® design delivers turn-on-a dime maneuverability and an overall amazing and exhilarating ride. Sea-Star hydraulic steering is standard, to maximize performance. And with its sexy style lines and perfect symmetry, you will definitely have the best-looking boat on the water.
Crownline’s attention to detail begins at the transom of the E23 XS. The full-length, oversized extended swim platform wraps around the outboard engine and has a soft-touch, non-slip platform mat, making boarding and exiting safe for all ages. The walk-thru into the cockpit features a close-out door for added security. A standard handheld shower at the transom is convenient for rinsing off after a swim. Aft electric lounge seating allows you to relax in maximum comfort while the boat is at rest. It adjusts positions with a touch of your finger so you can position yourself comfortably whether you are seated upright to keep an eye on the kids playing in the water, lying flat for sunbathing, or every position in-between. The spacious J-shaped cockpit interior is designed for your crew’s maximum enjoyment. When you are tied off in a cove, the Deluxe, shock absorbing driver and passenger bucket seats (with convenient flip-up bolsters) easily swivel to face aft and create a conversation-friendly cockpit. Stainless-steel cup holders and grab handles are within easy reach, no matter where you are sitting in the boat. The over-sized, “hot tub” style bow lounge seats are designed with flip-up arm rests and cushiony support in all the right places.
If you have kids (and ladies) on board, the convenience of having restroom facilities close at hand is a must. While the competition’s head compartments are extremely small and inconvenient (or impossible) to use, the Crownline E23 XS was designed with a deep sheer line, providing a more spacious enclosed area with added head room. It’s perfect for use as a changing room as well. Standard equipment includes a sink and beautiful solid surface countertop, a handheld shower, opening portlight and porta potti. The floor in the head area also has a drain, and a non-slip mat as well to insure no loss of footing when you step down into this space, even if your dripping wet from just being in the water moments earlier.
There’s plenty of room for eleven people on the E23 XS, and all their gear and toys! The deep freeboard and well-thought-out design provides massive amounts of storage throughout the boat, all finished with an impact resistant, non-marring coating.
An awesome sound system is one of the most important essentials when choosing a boat, and the Crownline E23 XS delivers best-in-class sound quality with a standard Kicker KMC10 marine stereo featuring full color LCD display and variable dimmer with day and night mode, AM/FM weatherband multi-regional tuner, USB with iPod, iPhone and Android charge and Bluetooth. It’s paired with EIGHT splash-proof Wet Sounds speakers (standard), so crank it up and immerse yourself in the music.
Highlights of additional standard features not already mentioned include LED cockpit lighting for dramatic evening boating experiences, a flush fit bow walk thru door for comfortable boating in cooler weather, battery charger, color-matched bimini top, bow and cockpit canvas, snap-in cockpit carpet, dual battery switch, stainless-steel four-step ladders at bow and aft, a side-mount portable table that conveniently stows away in the undermount cockpit storage drawer….and so much more!
As you can see, the Crownline Eclipse E23 XS is loaded up with customer-driven standard features throughout the boat. However, you can still customize your boat specifically to meet your personal needs and preferences. Choose from a variety of gelcoat patterns and color options, new beautifully designed interior selections, flooring, engine applications and more.
