After listening to dealer and consumer feedback, the 2020 E-Class models, Barletta’s mid-level offering, got a facelift that includes everything from aesthetics to standards and options.
“Customer feedback is something we take very seriously and always try to use in order to improve and elevate our product. We think we’ve hit the target with our E-Class revamp and our dealers really took notice at our Dealer Meeting in August. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive,” said Jeff Haradine VP of Sales at Barletta Boats.
The E-Class facelift included a total revision of the seating giving it a more luxurious, soft feel and elevated design. The furniture now includes large armrests on the bow chaise lounges, top stitching and welting throughout, and dark accents on the pillows to complete the high-end look. The helm also received a few upgrades with Marine Mat on the footrest, a larger stylish eyebrow, recessed gauges, an added cell phone holder, and under-helm storage net. The RGB light switch moved to the interior wall of the helm, accompanied by an upgradable fish/depth finder and courtesy light near the floor.
Haradine continued, “When we launched the E-Class last year at our MY2019 dealer meeting, we launched a really great boat. But there was room to improve – to make it “Barletta great.” I walk onto an E-Class model now, and the wow factor is evident. We believe, and early feedback has confirmed, that our dealers and consumers are going to be very excited about the 2020 changes.”
Additional upgrades include stainless steel corner castings, recessed lower profile underwater lights for a more subtle appearance, upgraded gate supports, more cupholders than ever, more USB ports including one at the co-captain’s chair on the C seating floorplans, and new flooring options to match the luxurious furniture upgrade. The RGB package also received an upgrade with higher quality lights and more of them scattered throughout the boat. The RBG lights in the cupholders are also thinner allowing for true Yeti Ready cupholders.
