Elan I40.1 Announcement

For more than a decade, the Elan Impression Line has been at the forefront of convenient, comfortable, and safe cruising yachts. Becoming the go-to yachts for cruising families and charter investors alike, the yachts grew in renown due to their comfort, durability, hull stiffness, and great sailing characteristics.

Deserving of this incredible heritage, the new I40.1 is all this and more!

 

NEW EXTERIOR

The I40.1’s modernized deck is a sight to behold. The new vertical transom allows for more cockpit space, a modern look, and the option of a large or small bathing platform – the size of which also determines either an enclosed transom or a sportier open transom feel. The addition of two aft storage boxes can be upgraded with a grill, a fridge, or a sink. Still reigning above are the iconic Elan Impression transom seats, which are always taken first by an enthusiastic crew!

The steering pedestals allow for 9″ electronics, and the practical steering wheels are made of light composite. Walking past the large, fold-down table with drink holders is a breeze, as is moving around the cockpit and handling the winches. The table was designed to be accommodating when moored and practical when sailing, thanks to the integrated handrail and cupholders.

 

NEW INTERIOR

Not many can reach as high a standard as a company with more than seventy years of experience in woodworking and carpentry. Elan’s craftsmen had always been leaps and bounds ahead of the competition – and their work with the new Impression 40.1 pushes the limits even further. The interior furniture is made from iroko wood veneer enhanced by solid iroko wood finish. Iroko (or African teak) is beautiful and durable, and combined with smart design and placement it makes the interior truly stand out. The spacious and light saloon will delight all guests, and the galley with a 130 l front-opening fridge will make life easier when cruising. Available in four different cabin layout configurations, the I40.1 can be customized to suit any need.

 

CONSTRUCTION

The Elan Impression hull and sail plan were designed by the renowned Humphreys Yacht Design studio, which in combination with the Elan Design Team created a line of deck saloon yachts that set a new standard in cruising yachts in the Mediterranean. The now-iconic modern classic hull shape is elegant and fast. Constructed using the latest composite technologies, the vacuum infusion lamination (VAIL) technique provides superb stiffness, which combined with a 3D VAIL stringer ensures one of the safest and sturdiest hulls on the market.
