Design number: 147 Year: 2005
The Elan 340 is a new hi-tech design racer cruiser with an emphasis on top level performance to capture the spirit of the competitive sailor. Voted European Yacht of the Year (under 10 metres) in 2007, it also offers a number of well-appointed comforts and style additions for the enjoyment of the cruising family. Designed to be responsive and fast in light winds, the boat easily handles various weather conditions with only a minimum adjustment of the sail area, a feature equally important to the cruising family as to the race crew.
For a boat less than ten metres in length, the Elan 340 has a hull designed with a long waterline to lift her performance to a new level in its class. The optimised lead keel, tall rig and clear deck featuring high quality deck equipment all combine to give the owner and crew a highly rewarding sail.
