Remarkable Design by Pininfarina
Elan E6 charmed the jury in the first round of elections with its muscular sporty looks enabled with minimalistic soft elegant lines. Merit goes to the successful collaboration between Elan Yachts and famous Italian design studio Pininfarina, which reflects in recognisable design, based on primary exterior elements of the Elan E-line on the one hand, significantly influenced by Pininfarina’s design style on the other, which gave the E6 a completely unique breathtaking appearance.
Exceptional Nautical Architecture
Elan E6 was created for skilled and demanding sailors, that also want a high level of comfort and cruising advantages. This represents a return to Elan’s DNA, with a big boundary push of her performance and aesthetics. The E Line is known for the active chine design, twin rudders and T-shaped keel, but the team at Elan and Humphreys Yacht Design also fine-tuned the new hull design to push the performance in various sailing conditions and all points of sail beyond what would be typically considered feasible for a yacht of this type.
The E6’s design finds success in all respects, but some elements truly make this yacht iconic. The coachroof window lines celebrate the heritage of Elan’s E Line, while the portlight fold gives the E6 a sporty line and an instantly recognisable look. In the interior, the main stairs in the saloon forecast the hexagonal motif of the interiors and are a centrepiece connecting it all. Instead of wood, the stairs are made of GRP, which carries Elan Yachts to completely new dimensions of design, ergonomics, and durability.
Performance Cruising Yachts have a stock model on order that will be availabe for delivery early next year.
