  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • BLUE WATER CRUISING

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.

Elan i45.1

Exterior

Inspired by the solutions presented on the Elan GT5, the Elan Impression 45.1 now has a longer and wider cockpit, defined by twin wheels, a split cockpit table, and a foldable sunbed. Boasting a modern vertical transom, two large cockpit storage boxes were added, which can also be equipped with a grill, sink, or fridge. Customers can now opt for a sportier look with an open transom configuration or choose the safety and comfort of a closed transom option with a large swim platform. One of the additional changes immediately apparent is the addition of a new window, illuminating the back cabins and building upon her immediately recognizable shape.

Elan i45.1

Comfort

The Impression 45.1 is bright and airy, thanks to its hull shape and recognisable deck saloon windows. The saloon features a large settee fully surrounding the table without obstrucitng the pathway. The Galley has been shifted forward, for more spacious living and larger navigation area. After months of testing, iroko veneer framed with solid iroko wood was chosen as the main interior furniture material, because it was determined to have the best endurance capabilities, a beautiful classic look, and an attractive price point. The Elan Impression 45.1 will be available in two cabin layouts, one more aligned with the needs of friends and family, and one for demanding charter groups.
