The Elan Impression 45.1: Evolution of a Modern Classic


The Elan Impression 45.1: Evolution of a Modern Classic

Elan Yachts, 01. 03. 2019



Seventy years have gone by since the engineers and artisans at Elan decided to apply their knowledge and expertise to successfully launch a new division dedicated to boats and yachts. After many years of improvements and innovations, and consolidating Elan as one of the strongest shipyards in the region, a new line of comfortable sailing yachts was created: the Elan Impression. Elan Impression yachts quickly became famous with cruising enthusiasts and charter companies alike, and they are known for their sailing characteristics, endurance, comfort features, and craftsmanship. In 2007, the Elan Impression 344 won the European Yacht of the Year award, thereby securing its place in the history books.

Now Introducing: The Elan Impression 45.1

Redesigned deck and cockpit: Main upgrades

Inspired by the solutions presented on the Elan GT5, the Elan Impression 45.1 now has a longer and wider cockpit, defined by twin wheels, a split cockpit table, and a foldable sunbed. Boasting a modern vertical transom, two large cockpit storage boxes were added, which can also be equipped with a grill, sink, or fridge. Customers can now opt for a sportier look with an open transom configuration or choose the safety and comfort of a closed transom option with a large swim platform.

One of the additional changes immediately apparent is the addition of a new window, illuminating the back cabins and building upon her immediately recognizable shape.

Redesigned interior: Main upgrades


The galley has been shifted forward, toward the front of the yacht, for more spacious living and larger navigation area.

After months of testing, iroko veneer framed with solid iroko wood was chosen as the main interior furniture material because it was determined to have the best endurance capabilities, a beautiful classic look, and an attractive price point.

The Elan Impression 45.1 will be available in two cabin layouts, one more aligned with the needs of friends and family, and one for demanding charter groups.
