  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • GREAT INVESTMENT

    icon showing great profitability when investing in elan yachts

    Elan Yachts are one of the most popular yachts to serve as investments in charter market. Low maintenance cost, exceptional durability, reliable aftersales support and easy upkeep – all of these elements ensure the Elan yachts have great value retention and profitability.

  • 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.

  • L-SHAPED KEEL

    icon depicting l shaped keel on some elan yachts

    The classic L shaped keel has many benefits ensuring easier navigation. It's a user friendly keel with advantages when clearing kelp, easier manouvering in marinas and a smaller draught.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Elan Impression 50.1

Exterior

The yacht’s level of comfort is made possible by its large volume, made even more friendly by the unique, gally-forward layout.  The U-shaped cockpit seating and a large sundeck are signature features of the yacht. The Impression 50.1’s twin wheel and rudder system ensures better control and handling even in the most extreme conditions.

Elan Impression 50.1

Comfort

The Elan Impression 50.1 offers abundant volume down below with plenty of natural light, thanks to all of the hull and deck windows. Unique to the Impression 50.1 within the cruiser class of this size is the innovative inverted deck saloon, which ensures the optimal use of the maximum width of the yacht without compromising the cabin and galley areas.
