Elan k7

July 30, 2019

For more than a decade, the Elan Impression Line has been at the forefront of convenient, comfortable and safe cruising yachts. Becoming go-to yachts for cruising families and charter investors alike, the yachts grew in fame due to their comfort, durability, hull stiffness and great sailing characteristics.

Deserving of this incredible heritage, the new I40.1 is all that and more!

The I40.1’s modernised deck is a sight to behold. The new, vertical transom allows for more cockpit space, a modern look and the option of a large or small bathing platform – the size of which also determines either an enclosed transom, or a more sporty, open transom feel. The addition of two aft storage boxes can be upgraded with a grill, a fridge and a sink. Still reigning above, are the iconic Elan Impression transom seats, which are always taken first by an enthusiastic crew.

Not many can reach as high a standard as a company that has more than 70 years of experience in woodwork and carpentry. Elan’s craftsmen had always been leaps ahead of the competition – and their work with new Impression 40.1 pushes this benchmark even further. The interior furniture is made from Iroko wood veneer enhanced by solid Iroko wood finish. Iroko (or African teak) is beautiful and durable, which combined with smart design and placement makes the interior truly stand out.

Even in the event of an onboard power failure, a Ritchie Navigation SuperSport Helmsman SS-1002 magnetic compass still works.
