The Elan Impression 43 heralds a new era for the famous Elan Impression line
The timeless classic, the Elan Impression has been transformed into a brand new design with the launch of the new Impression 43.
Expertly designed by Humphreys Naval Architecture and styled by the design studio Pininfarina this exciting new model offers a high degree of comfort and an exciting sailing experience for those looking to enjoy blue water cruising.
Elan’s recognisable 3D VAIL composite technology creates a light, stiff and incredibly safe construction style. VAIL, or vacuum-assisted infusion lamination process creates a solid hull without imperfections or air bubbles. The deck is also constructed in VAIL technology, which adds to lightness and durability to the yacht as well as improves the mechanical properties of the composite.
The new hull shape has a modern wide beam carried aft to maximise volume, twin rudders and a sail plan optimized for easy short-handed sailing. A self tacking jib is standard with optional overlapping genoa.
The cockpit is built for enjoyment at anchor as well as sailing pleasure. Ample seating for up to 10 people will ensure everyone is comfortable onboard. An optional modular cockpit table converts into two sunbeds and enables lounging and sunbathing in the cockpit as well.
The uncluttered decks enable ease of movement and flush mounted hatches extra styling. The helm seating can also house optional BBQ and fridge. This new model still incorporates the now-iconic transom seats and elegantly designed steering pods that can house 9-inch electronics and a myriad of other instruments.
The new interior is modern, stylish & sophisticated, available in three or four-cabin versions. The three-cabin version has an island bed and spacious ensuite head with a separate shower. The optional four-cabin version adds a cabin with bunk beds, perfect for families or groups of friends.
The saloon can comfortably seat the whole family around a centre table, flanked by two solid wood chairs that fold in a pre-determined space when sailing. It can also be easily converted into a double berth.
The long side-galley features a three-ring stove with an oven and a front-opening refrigerator on the convenient L-shaped cabinet. The long layout offers plenty of surface space and cupboards for storage.
Grab rails line the ceiling to ensure for safe movement when underway and the floor is on one level with no hidden steps.
