They will also provide excellent low maintenance and perfect handling characteristics, at sea and inland. The inboard powered E26 Classic is designed as a tender, for commuter runs between ship and shore, or waterside house and town. The outboard-powered E26 Rider is aimed squarely at day cruising, although both models are equally capable of performing this role.
