  • PERFORMANCE

    two letters of P, indicating pure performance pack by Elan Yachts

    Lightness, sports equipment and a myriad of trimming options, these yachts are designed not only to be enjoyed by a cruising family, but also to be sailed fast by an ambitious crew. Join a regatta or two and be among the first around the buoy.

  • PLANING POTENTIAL

    PLANING POTENTIAL

    This yacht can be configured to a low displacement configuration, which allows the yacht to achieve its full planning potential, designed into the hull and sail plan by Humphreys Yacht Design. Fly the kite, rise from the water and plane!

  • TWIN HELM

    Schematic view of twin helms Elan Yachts have

    Elan yachts were one of the first production yachts that incorporated a twin helm system, borrowing the concept from the offshore racing world. Now a staple in yacht design, the Jefa steering twin wheel approach enables easy maneuvering from both sides of the yacht while not impeding movement in the cockpit. Twin helms also introduce a new level of redundancy on your blue water cruises, especially when paired with twin rudders.

  • TWIN RUDDERS

    Schematic icon showing twin rudders for elan yachts

    Twin rudders provide exceptional control and reduce the tendency to broach. The yacht does not stall easily, as her pitching moment is reduced. The twin rudder system provides finger-tip directional control, especially when heeled. 

  • QUALITY

    elan-yachts-qality

    Created with a team of world-class GRP technitians, craftsmen and engineers, Elan Yachts are a level above the quality of other production yachts. Hop aboard and see the difference – unparalleled design, solid wood finish, and high attention to detail in every aspect. Durable and reliable - true benefits of a more than 70 year old tradition in yacht-making.

  • COMPOSITE BULKHEADS

    Composite Bulkheads

    Composite version ensure an unbroken surface along the bulkhead and an equal distribution of mechanical loads along the cross section. The vacuum-cured epoxy resin impregnated biaxial fabric take the stiffness and durability to the next level and ensure the highest compact structure.

  • T-SHAPED KEEL

    The T-shaped keel lowers the centre of gravity and enables enhanced sail-carrying power, increasing speed and stability of the yacht.

  • VAIL HULL

    Vacuum Assisted Infusion Lamination icon for Elan Yacht HULLS

    As the only sure way to prevent osmosis, and ensure uniform stiffness, lightness and safety, Elan was one of the first serial yacht manufacturers to adopt the Vacuum Assisted Infusion Lamination back in 2003. VAIL enables a complete saturation of epoxy resin and removes human error from the process.

  • 3D VAIL

    Elan Yachts 3D VAIL Technology

    In essence, the 3D VAIL technology integrates the inner yacht structure, stringers and stringer supports into the hull itself using vacuum assisted infusion. When fully applied, this complicated and expensive process creates a one-piece laminated structure out of all load-bearing elements of the yacht, increasing the stiffness and lightness and ensuring best mechanical properties.

Elan E4

Exterior

Developed to satisfy diverse modes of sailing, from short-handed sailing to crewed racing or family cruising, this yacht does it all amazingly well. Its main design features, the twin rudders, broad stern and chined hull, all work hand-in-hand towards different goals – sparkling performance, improved stability, excellent control and a comfortable interior. The included retractable carbon fibre bowsprit, adjustable split backstay and a revised mainsheet arrangement enable a surprising amount of fine-tuned sailing. Practically arranged winches, a genoa furling system and a keel stepped mast are all included in the standard package making the E4 truly an ultimate yacht for sailing aficionados. Simply put, the yacht delivers exuberant performance with such ease that you will want to sail it harder.

Elan E4

Comfort

After sailing, there is plenty of space above and below deck for family and friends. The Elan E4’s wide beam offers a comfortable cabin layout; from the bright social saloon to the fully-equipped galley and head with generous head space. The nav-station on the starboard side offers plenty of space for planning and navigating, and the DAME-award-winning control panel makes controlling all aspects of the yacht a breeze. Practical LED lighting systems, enhanced by ambient lighting, compliment the beautiful natural oak veneered furniture included in the standard package. The 3-cabin layout offers an additional aft cabin, accommodating even more crew if needed.
