Sydney-based US Yachts, Australian distributors of Elan Yachts, is delighted to announce that the new Elan 400, launched in January this year, has been nominated for the prestigious European Yacht of the Year in the Performance Cruiser category.

The Elan 400 is the newest yacht in the range, featuring elegant yet dynamic lines, and catering for owners seeking that perfect balance between comfort and performance, competitors seeking speed and safety and purists valuing attention to detail and clever features.


The Elan 400 boasts a smart innovative interior with two- or three-cabin layouts and one or two heads, a flip-up chart table in saloon, modern and spacious ergonomic interior with optimized storage space, flush Skyview hatches for more light and visibility and new hull window design.

Inheriting the qualities of her predecessor Elan 410 and adding some exciting new features from the immensely successful Elan 350 (2011 European Yacht of the Year award winner), the Elan 400 is fast and elegant and continues to set new standards in the 40-foot segment.

CEO of US Yachts, Matt Hayes, test sailed the 400 in Slovenia in May, and was very impressed with the high tech sailability and comfort.

'The quality of the workmanship was exceptional. The great features of the Elan range include chimed hulls, twin rudders, vacuum infused hull and decks – ensuring that the yachts are very strong, light and exude powerful performance.'


All Elan’s yachts are certified by Germanischer Lloyd, designed to withstand the toughest conditions and carry the ISO 14001 standard for environmentally-friendly production.

Building on rich tradition, combined with an innovative present, Elan is laying strong foundations for the future.

All I can say is that had LRBAR's hull not been stopped by SBTJ's windward foil there would have been serious injuries aboard the Japanese boat. Moreover, notwithstanding the damage done to Land Rover BAR's boat, there must be considerable damage to the dagger-foil case of SBTJ. Considerable.
