Eclipse E9 XS Press Release

Crownline’s Eclipse XS series is growing, and in a very big way! Crownline proudly introduces the newest, and largest, member of the Eclipse XS series, the E9 XS. This feature packed 29’ 3” sport deckboat was built for passionate boaters who don’t want to leave anyone on dry land.

The E9 XS profile captures the sleek sexiness of Crownline’s SS models, with curvaceous style lines perfectly accentuated by gleaming gelcoat and classy stainless steel side accents. The F.A.S.T. Tab® hull further enhances the sporty look and, when coupled with the horsepower of twin engines, provides a ride that is definitely performance-tuned.

Don’t let the sleek silhouette of the E9 XS fool you, though. The interior was designed to perfectly marry the roomy comfort of a sport deckboat with the dialed-in performance of a bowrider. The full length wrap-around swim platform with a soft touch mat makes boarding easy. The stainless steel four-step boarding ladder at the transom stows away when not in use. Stainless steel grab rails and handles are strategically placed throughout the boat (including at the transom) for added safety.

The E9 XS has the ultimate entertainment-friendly cockpit. The Marquis aluminum hard top features a convenient pull out Sure-Shade canvas extension for extra protection from the sun when desired. Dual electric aft lounge seats comfortably and conveniently adjust to your desired position – forward facing, aft facing, flat for use as a sun lounge, and every position in between. The driver and passenger seats face forward or recline into rear facing loungers. A marine drawer refrigerator is incorporated under the cockpit bench seating, so you have the convenience of this valuable feature without sacrificing any space. The portable cockpit table can be placed in the bow or the cockpit as needed, then stowed away. And, no matter where you are in the boat, there’s a stainless steel cupholder within easy reach.

The passenger-side console conceals a beautifully appointed head compartment featuring upper and lower cabinetry with a granite countertop, stylish vessel sink and silhouette faucet, electric-flush head with holding tank, portlight and teak-look mat.

A bow walk-thru door is flush mounted and features an in-wall storage compartment – there’s not one inch on this boat that is wasted. The windshield features a stainless steel header and walk thru to the spacious U-shaped bow area. Designed for comfort and convenience, the “Hot Tub” style lounge seats with heavy duty flip-up arm rests, stainless steel grab rails and cup holders, and a built in cooler will make the bow one of the most popular spots on the E9 XS.

Lots of passengers means lots of gear, toys and refreshments. Not to worry, there’s plenty of storage for everything. Two huge in-floor storage compartments with impact resistant, non-marring coating, a finished storage tub at the transom, large storage areas beneath both bow seats, in-floor bow storage for oversized fenders and combing boxes throughout.

Underwater transom lights and LED cockpit lighting will set the mood during late afternoon and evening cruises. A little background music adds to the ambiance and is provided by the Polk premium stereo and TEN (10) upgraded marine WetSounds speakers. There are two in the bow, four in the cockpit, two amplified at the transom and two amplified on the hard top.

And, the best part, everything previously mentioned is STANDARD in the E9 XS! But that’s not all. Crownline incorporates more standard equipment on their boats than any other manufacturer. Additional features included are color-matched bow and cockpit canvas, snap-in cockpit carpet, D.T.S. / D.E.C. controls (depending on your choice of twin engine application), Raymarine eS98 Touchscreen MFD w/engine information, windlass with rope and chain, trim tabs with indicators…..and much more!
