Elan GT6 – Winner of the prestigious
“Red Dot: Product Design” Award 2021
We are thrilled to announce the new Elan GT6 has just won a “Red Dot: Product Design” award. The “Red Dot” is the most sought-after industrial design award in the world. The 2021 winners were chosen from a pool of 7800 applicants from 60 countries. The GT6 previously won the Oceanway award for Best Interior Design and is short-listed for the International Yacht and Aviation award.
The Elan GT6 is an ambitious collaborative project between Elan Yachts, Studio F. A. Porsche and Humphreys Yacht Design.
The GT6 is designed to be easily handled by a couple yet capable of exhilarating performance across a wide range of wind and sea conditions. Its hull, drawn by Humphreys Yacht Design, combines race-derived features with the ability to carry a full cruising payload, perfectly optimised for short-handed, medium-range cruising. Combined with extensive CFD modelling, the yacht design produced a thoroughbred sailboat that delivers exhilarating performance on all points of sail.
Smart Cruising – Another New Elan Impression 45.1 Delivered in Sydney.
Congratulations to proud owners Robin & Conny on taking delivery of their long awaited Edelweiss, a beautifully finished and expertly crafted Elan Impression 45.1. These savvy buyers made use of the depreciation deduction stimulus offered by the ATO for a new yacht in charter. Edelweiss will soon start work within the Cumberland Charter Yachts fleet in the Whitsunday Islands.
Needless to say the couple are delighted with their new yacht and plan to enjoy life aboard prior to sailing her north.
The Elan Impression 45.1 oozes style and sophistication with attention to detail at every level. The woodwork is beautifully crafted with plenty of solid wood handrails, fiddles and trim. The elegant lines of this new deck catch the eye and the raised coachroof allows for masses of volume, light and ventilation below deck. Under sail she is perfectly balanced and reaches impressive speeds even in light airs.
