Recently, Elan Yachts started teasing the world of sailing with a new project.

Pinifarina, the legendary design studio from Turin, Italy, joined the project team, along with nautical architecture studio Humfreys Yacht Design and composite specialists, Gurit . The yacht was now revealed to be the largest addition to Elan's performance range, the 47 ft Elan E6.

Elan E6 line is on the performance side of Elan's range. The yachts were among the first in industry to introduce off-shore short-handed racing features into the cruising segment.

Recognised by the active chine design, twin rudders and t-shaped keels, these performance cruisers are the go-to choice for serious sailors who also expect high levels of comfort and cruising amenities for their friends and family.

The E6 is the latest iteration of this ethos, taking all elements of this complicated dance to the next level. It is a fusion of Italian aesthetics, exceptional nautical architecture, and high-tech composite technology.

The E6 challenged our capabilities and pushed the boundaries in terms of technology and design", explained Marko Škrbin, director of Elan's nautical division. "However, in concept and spirit, this yacht represents more of a return to our roots".
