  • 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

    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.

  • 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

    icon showing ease of sail and shorthanded with elan yachts

    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

    elan yachts deck saloon icon

    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 GT6

Start Your Grand Tour

Start your grand tour with a sophisticated grand tourer, that delivers the perfect balance of speed and power, comfort and luxury, easy handling and precise control. It is the result of a unique collaboration that blends Elan’s hi-tech boatbuilding and fine craftsmanship with the acclaimed naval architecture of Humphreys Yacht Design and, in the case of the GT6, the bold, iconic style of Studio F. A. Porsche to create exclusive yachts with genuine GT spirit.

 

Exhilarating Performance, Complete Control

The hulls of the GT line have been carefully optimised through extensive CFD modelling to be fast, stable and easily driven in a wide range of sea states. Combined with a powerful and perfectly balanced sail plan, they deliver a huge amount of fun at all points of sail. In the true GT spirit, their race-derived features have been optimised for cruising to deliver precise control, impeccable handling characteristics and a smooth, comfortable ride.

Elan GT6

Luxury, Living And Comfort

The striking flush silhouette of the GT6, styled by Studio F. A. Porsche, is a well-balanced combination of sharp, distinctive lines and soft, sculpted curves– it is guaranteed to stand out from the crowd. The exterior design combines minimalism with dynamics that bring sailors closer to nature. Some elements of the stunning cockpit design are inspired by the aerodynamics of iconic sports cars, while others such as the steering pedestals and ‘floating’ stern take their design cues from nature, inspired by seagull wings and stingray fins. The deck is completely clean, as all halyards are lead under it for ultimate convenience and clean design.

 

Studio F. A. Porsche’s iconic design values and world-class ergonomics create a uniquely stylish, luxurious and practical living space inside the GT6. The sleek panoramic deck saloon gives a wonderful 180° view, and the cleverly inverted layout makes the best possible use of the spacious, broad-beamed hull. The galley is forward, right on top of the keel, where the yacht’s motion at sea is most comfortable, with minimal heeling, pitching and rolling. This frees up space further aft for a huge full-beam saloon. A lavish owner’s suite with a king-size island double bed makes best use of the forepeak and big through-hull windows in every cabin provide a great view out. A wide range of layout options and configurations are available to tailor the rest of the accommodation, systems and stowage on board to best suit you, your crew and your style of sailing. And throughout the boat, exquisite details, premium materials and a beautifully handcrafted finish enhance the joy of being on board.
