With a broad stern, chined hull, twin-rudder system and a spacious cockpit layout, all designed for the best sailing efficiency, the Elan E3 emulates the feel of a larger yacht. Simply put, the yacht delivers exuberant performance with such ease that you will want to sail harder; such is the level of control delivered by the E3. Its T-bulb keel lowers the ballast centre of gravity significantly, allowing a reduction of displacement for a given level of stability. Combined with VAIL (vacuum-assisted infusion lamination) bulkheads and a powerful hull structure, the E3 is a tight, strong and safe boat.

The Elan E3 offers an unprecedented level of comfort, ensuring a smooth crossover from racing to cruising with friends or family. The Elan E3’s bright and airy interior does not compromise when it comes to cruising leisure and creates the feel of a much larger boat. A big, social saloon area with natural oak veneer furniture and standing headroom, comfortable cabins and a fully-equipped galley and head makes every minute on this yacht pleasurable, especially as it will probably be among the first back at the mooring.

The ELAN E3 is delivered with a CE certificate and meets the requirements of European directive 2013//53//EU for recreational craft. The CE class A category certificate (unlimited Ocean voyages) is issued by Germanischer Lloyd.

Hull is laminated with VAIL - Vacuum Assisted Infusion Lamination technology, to considerably improve strength, mechanical and chemical properties of the hull, SVG gelcoat for optimal chemical resistance against osmosis and mirror finish, sandwich construction using multi-directional Fibreglass, structural closed cells foam core and single skin on loaded areas, vinylester skin coat and Isophtalic polyester resin are used for high quality product, powerful inner structure distributes all loads from the keel and rig effectively with a minimum flexing of the hull.
