Design number: Year: 2009
Developed to satisfy diverse modes of sailing, from short-handed sailing to crewed racing or family cruising, this yacht does it all amazingly well. Its main design features, the twin rudders, broad stern and chined hull, all work hand-in-hand towards different goals – sparkling performance, improved stability, excellent control and a comfortable interior. The included retractable carbon fibre bowsprit, adjustable split backstay and a revised mainsheet arrangement enable a surprising amount of fine-tuned sailing. Practically arranged winches, a genoa furling system and a keel stepped mast are all included in the standard package making the E4 truly an ultimate yacht for sailing aficionados. Simply put, the yacht delivers exuberant performance with such ease that you will want to sail it harder.
After sailing, there is plenty of space above and below deck for family and friends. The Elan E4’s wide beam offers a comfortable cabin layout; from the bright social saloon to the fully-equipped galley and head with generous head space. The nav-station on the starboard side offers plenty of space for planning and navigating, and the DAME-award-winning control panel makes controlling all aspects of the yacht a breeze. Practical LED lighting systems, enhanced by ambient lighting, compliment the beautiful natural oak veneered furniture included in the standard package. The 3-cabin layout offers an additional aft cabin, accommodating even more crew if needed.
