The New Impression 43.  Expertly designed for total sailing pleasure


New exterior

Styled in cooperation with the design studio Pininfarina

The cockpit is built for enjoyment at anchor as well as sailing pleasure. Ample seating for up to 10 people will make sure everyone has comfort on board. Optional modular cockpit table converts into two sunbeds and enables lounging and sunbathing in the cockpit as well. Beautifully designed steering pedestals can support 9-inch electronics and a myriad of other instruments one might wish for. The twin helm with composite steering wheels offers freedom of movement aboard.

There are plenty of cockpit lockers as well, offering enough space for a life-raft, and any other equipment that needs to be on hand.

Integrated into the deck are two transom boxes, which offer an extended seating area for the skipper and guests and can hold both a grill and a refrigerator.

The yacht comes with a small bathing platform in standard specification, and that can be upgraded to a large platform for more space, safety, and a closed transom feel.

No Impression yacht would be complete without the now-iconic transom seats, which are sure to be the first taken as the yacht sets sail.

The deck can be enhanced with both synthetic and real teak, depending on the wishes of the owner. Large, flush hatches and portlights are built in the coach roof in many places, letting both light, and that soothing breeze in the interior.

The yacht has a self-tacking jib in standard, but can also be upgraded to a genoa among other options.

New interior

Modern, Stylish & Sophisticated

Owners can choose between three or four-cabin versions. The three-cabin version includes an en-suite with an island bed and a spacious head with a separate shower, and the four-cabin version adds a cabin with bunk beds, perfect for families or groups of friends.

The interior is built with “rustic” oak veneer and marine-grade plywood, contrasted with modern gray-coloured storage cupboards. A solid oak wood finish is applied wherever the furniture is expected to go through most use, to increase its durability.

The saloon can comfortably seat the crew around a centre table, flanked by two solid wood chairs that fold in a pre-determined space when sailing. It can also be easily converted into a double berth.

The long side-galley features a three-ring stove with an oven and a front-opening refrigerator on the convenient L-shaped cabinet. The long layout offers plenty of surface space and cupboards for storage. The stove area is protected by easy-to-clean panels and is ventilated by a hatch above.

Construction & Design

Optimised for Short handed sailing

Boasting a modern wide-beam hull, the yacht offers much more space than previous models. Due to the continuing tradition of a raised coach roof, what we call a “semi-deck-saloon”, it holds its own against competitors as well.

The yachts aesthetics were styled in cooperation with the design studio Pininfarina, a relationship that birthed the multiple design award-winning Elan E6 and is now continuing with the Elan Impression 43.

The hull and sail plan are optimized for easy short-handed sailing. Elan’s recognizable 3D VAIL composite technology creates a light, stiff and incredibly safe construction style. VAIL, or vacuum-assisted infusion lamination process creates a solid hull without imperfections or air bubbles, which, in combination with the vinyl ester outer layer makes the yacht osmosis-proof. The “3D” part of vacuum-assisted infusion lamination is applied to the vertical and lateral stringers, which ensures the best mechanical properties of the hull and rigging and is the secret behind Elan’s famed hull stiffness.

The yacht has twin rudders, designed by Humphreys Yacht Design, in-house epoxy constructed rudders optimized for rigidity, endurance, and control. The twin rudder design provides finger-tip steering and reduces the tendency to broach.
