Elan is a popular and well-known brand in Europe, and we are now beginning its introduction to the North American market. While a later arrival than some other European brands, the timing is excellent as the U.S. Dollar's strength versus the Euro is +20% from one year ago, allowing our new dealers to introduce Elan and Impression yachts to North America with very attractive pricing. We have targeted key areas for dealer placement, and are now interviewing prospective dealers to provide broad market coverage, while ensuring that each dealer has a significantly large market area.
Elan produces two distinct ranges of sailing yachts, offering a wide range of appeal to discerning sailors. The Elan range of performance cruising yachts includes three unique series: E Series; S Series; and GT Series. All Elan E & S series yachts feature chined hulls and twin rudders for excellent performance together with retractable bowsprits and t-shaped keels. Construction technology includes superior Vacuum Assisted Infusion Lamination (VAIL) for hulls, and both hand and infusion technology for deck areas.
The Impression Yachts range offers roomy, well equipped and easy handling cruising yachts. This full range of new Deck Saloon yachts are designed by Humpheys Yacht Design to satisfy the demanding needs of modern yachtsmen with every cruising comfort in mind and feature models from 35 to 50 feet with a variety of cabin layouts.
Both the Elan and Impression ranges offer a wide range of options and floor plans to suit each customer. Further, we offer three distinct interior wood choices - light oak, teak, or mahogany; three choices of flooring colors, and ten color choices in two different finishes for interior fabrics.
The April 2015 issue of SAILS Magazine (Australia) comments: "The 40-foot E5 is the epitome of the modern sports cruiser thanks to chines, T-keel, twin rudders, and keel stepped performance rig. But the cruiser aspect is also very much in evidence with a fully-fitted interior and a sea kindly hull..."
Yachts and Yachting (UK), tested the Elan E4 in their March 2015 issue, saying: "The day I took out the E4 - the latest addition to Elan's sporty range - for a test sail was just such a day. I came off the water wishing I could take her straight out again, and again... and again".
All Elan and Impression sailing yachts are designed by the highly respected Humphreys Yacht Design. From Oyster Yachts to Volvo Open 70 designs, Humphreys has proven experience developing both cruising and racing yachts. Select the following link to learn more about Humphreys.
