Elan E1


Once aboard the new E1, you will appreciate the numerous innovative solutions, designed to improve performance, ensure single-handed sailing capability, saving space and energy.

Aside from performance advantages, the Elan E1’s beamy hull form also provides an exceptionally large cockpit and interior volume for a design of this size. The Elan E1 also features tiller steering and a transom mounted mainsheet traveller (optional on S1) to further enhance the feeling of space in the cockpit and for ease of handling.
