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.
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!
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 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.
Created with a team of world-class GRP technicians, 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 version ensure an unbroken surface along the bulkhead and an equal distribution of mechanical loads along the cross section. The vacuum-cured resin impregnated biaxial fabric take the stiffness and durability to the next level and ensure the highest compact structure.
The T-shaped keel lowers the centre of gravity and enables enhanced sail-carrying power, increasing speed and stability of the yacht.
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 resin and removes human error from the process.
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.
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.
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.

Large Bathing Platform
Choose the large bathing platform and extend the outside living area substantially. Increase safety for children and pets by closing up the transom. Sunbathe, fish, shower and enjoy life at sea, just above the water surface!
Small Bathing Platform
Light and out-of-the way, the small bathing platform comes covered in teak and enables easy bathing. Enjoy the sporty open transom feel of the yacht, keep weight low while keeping most of the utilities of a bathing platform.
Incredibly popular and innovative feature, the cockpit boxes serve as additional storage as well as seating space. They can be upgraded to hold a cockpit grill and a refrigerator for ultimate enjoyment aboard!
Illuminate your yacht with beautiful ambient lighting including dimming options.
Teak in cockpit and on platform
All yachts come equipped with artificial teak in cockpit and on the bathing platform (if ordered). Can be upgraded to full teak deck and real teak.
