  • 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.

  • 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. 

  • 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.

  • PERFORMANCE

    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.

  • 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.

  • BLUE WATER CRUISING

    icon for blue water cruising on an elan yacht

    Be one of many people to travel long distances on an Elan yacht. Cross oceans, or even circum-navigate the globe; forget about the everyday issues of the mundane life and set sail on your biggest adventure ever. Reliability, ease of sail, stiffness of the hull, comfort and capacity for a myriad of blue water equipment (like a water-maker and a generator) enable the yacht to became your perfect blue water cruiser.

  • EASY TO SAIL

    This yacht is easily handled by a shorthanded or even single-handed crew, due to winch placement and furling sails. Paired with a more conservative sail plan, this ensures a easily managed rig.

  • COMFORT

    elan yachts are great for cruising

    Elan yacht has been designed with every comfort in mind. Leisure when cruising is guaranteed. Relaxation and enjoyment is a priority – everything from a large volume, sunbathing areas in cockpit, outdoor grill and fridge, to microwave and coffee machine options.

  • DECK SALOON

    The raised coachroof forms a deck saloon yacht which offers a far brighter and more spacious interior than an ordinary yacht, thus creating a true home away from home while onboard.

  • SAFETY

    Conservative sail plan and a classic hull shape that does not punish casual sailors in extreme weather. Low centre of gravity, great stability due to CFD modeling by Humphreys Yacht Design. Option of closed and covered cockpit that protects the crew from the elements. Easy and convenient emergency ladder trigger mechanism. Stiff hull that saves lives.

Elan GT5

Exterior

Launched in 2017 to critical acclaim, the Elan GT5 was a groundbreaking concept, introduced to the world of sailing. Conceived as a grand tourer, a term borrowed from the automotive industry, the yacht exists on the crossover point between a luxury cruising yacht, and a performance cruiser.

The GT5 has a performance hull, twin rudders and a hard active chine - all features designed by Humphreys Yacht Design and intended to increase the yachts performance and control. In combination with a semi-deck-saloon for increased interior volume, handcrafted luxury interior and a myriad of luxurious equipment options, this is the quintessential luxury performance cruiser in the 40 to 45 foot range. 

With the swim platform, options of a cockpit galley featuring a fridge, grill and other amenities common on much larger yachts, the GT5 cockpit is designed for enjoying time with family and friends, offering ample seating area and different innovative cockpit table options converting the seating into a sunbathing lounge.

A clean deck design ensures fast and safe passage forward, and enables plenty of sunbathing area with dedicated cushions on the foredeck.

Elan GT5

Comfort

The space below deck is unique in her class. The Elan Design Team has implemented an inverted saloon layout featuring the galley forward, ensuring optimal utilisation of the yacht’s volume for the most comfortable and innovative saloon in her size range. The galley forward offers ample storage space with a customisable corner to be equipped individually for each owner. The 180-degree panoramic skylight with the window in window feature, two hatches and one large central hatch allows the saloon to be ventilated at all times. The new GT5 is also the only yacht this size to offer a separate shower compartment with a 3-cabin, 2-heads interior layout.
