  • 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 it's full planing potential, designed into the hull and sailplan by Humphreys Yacht Design. Fly the kite, rise form the water and plane!

  • 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.

  • 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. 

  • 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 ensures best mechanical properties.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Elan E5

Performance

The Elan E5 is designed for demanding sailors who seek a perfect balance between serious, regatta-winning performance and elegant design with abundant space and comfort. Exciting features such as hard chines, twin rudders and twin wheels make this an instantly recognisable boat. It comes equipped with an impressive array of performance-enhancing equipment, including a retractable carbon fibre bowsprit, a genoa furling system, a keel stepped mast and an adjustable split backstay. The E5 is first and foremost a sailors’ yacht but it can also be used comfortably in shorthanded cruises.

Elan E5

Comfort

The yacht features a clean and distinctive exterior design, a carefully tuned sail plan, and a welcoming cockpit with a teak-covered seating area.

  • LARGE BATHING PLATFORM

    Large bathing platform for family cruising or charter yachts on elan yachts

    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!

  • COCKPIT BOXES

    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!

  • 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.

  • Ambient lights

    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. 

  • Twin wheels

    Due to the wider and flatter hull design, twin rudders are more efficient than a single rudder, providing exceptional control and reducing the tendency to broach. The yacht does not stall easily, her pitching moment is reduced, and directional control is superb!

  • COCKPIT TABLE
