Elan E5, perfect compromise between cruising and racing
Simply the perfect compromise between cruising and racing. In the Elan E5, cruising interiors and exterior ergonomics are combined with a retractable carbon fiber bowsprit, furling genoa, through-mast and adjustable split backstay: a yacht for those who like to sail without sacrificing comfort.
The Elan E5 is the boat designed with boaters in mind who want good performance and, at the same time, a design that is elegant, refined and comfortable. Performance-enhancing accessories are Elan’s trademark: retractable carbon fiber bowsprit, furling genoa with underdeck furling, through-mast and adjustable split backstay. This is complemented by a spacious and comfortable exterior design with a cozy cockpit equipped with teak-lined seating.
Inside is the elegant natural oak furniture, designed to optimize space, and the kitchen, equipped to satisfy all palates. The DAME award-winning control panel is a plus for a boat that offers racing performance while providing a comfortable and quiet cruising experience.
Based on Elan’s tradition of building performance-oriented boats, the E Line ensures high-performance sailing and flawless cruising capabilities both on deck and below deck. The wide stern, hull shape, and twin rudders provide control and stability at heeling angles and high speeds, while the airy, well-equipped galley, large salon, and remarkable array of top-of-the-line deck equipment allow for extraordinary comfort and small-crew sailing solutions.
These VOR70-inspired yachts, designed in collaboration with Humphreys Yacht Design, are now available with the most advanced standard package on the market, with high-performance sailing solutions as important as comfort-related features. Innovative VAIL (Vacuum Assisted Infusion Lamination) technology provides a tight, strong and stable construction and thus increased safety at sea. Backed by a long tradition of craftsmanship, Elan Yachts also boasts an unparalleled quality finish that highlights its boutique nautical nature. The E Line truly offers dual-use yachts without compromise.
