September 1st, 2022 – Elan Yacht’s sporty new performance cruiser the Elan E6 is now officially nominated for the European Yacht of the Year Award (EYOTY). The E6 is the flagship of Elan’s performance-orientated E-Line and was designed by a “dream team” of specialists: Humphreys Yacht Design did the naval architecture, Pininfarina did the styling, Gurit refined the composite production and Elan led the project and constructed the yacht. It’s intended for serious sailors that expect great performance but intend to use it for leisure with family and friends as well. The EYOTY nomination is an important confirmation of the success of the project and is the most sought-after accolade in the yachting business and confirmation of excellence.
Every September, yachting enthusiasts and shipyards eagerly await the announcement of the year’s nominees for the European Yacht of the Year. The competition is fierce, as only the best and most promising projects will make the cut. An international team of European judges comprising editors from the most influential European magazines select the nominees. The winner is announced at a gala ceremony at the Boot Dusseldorf boat show the next January.
