With a broad stern, chined hull, twin-rudder system and a spacious cockpit layout, all designed for best sailing efficiency, the new Elan E3 just emulates the feel of a larger boat. Simply put, she delivers exuberant performance with such ease, you will want to sail her harder, such is the level of control delivered by her chines and twinrudder arrangement. Elan E3’s T-bulb keel lowers the ballast centre of gravity significantly, again allowing a reduction of displacement for a given level of stability. A sparkling performance, but realized in a shorthanded crew context.
The pure joy of sailing does not have to stop whilst moored. Elan E3’s bright and airy interior does not compromise when it comes to on-board comfort and cruising leisure. With a big, social saloon area with standing headroom, well equipped galley and comfortable cabins, the crew will enjoy every minute on this performance cruiser, especially as it will probably be among the first back on the mooring and secure the best space! But when racing calls again, the saloon, galley and cabin cabinets can be removed to save considerable weight (available as an option).
