Elan 400


The new Elan 400 is a 40 foot Yaught with a fair price tag and good performance.It resembles the Elan 350, but in a larger package. Exterior features include a T-shaped keel, twin rudders and twin wheels, distinctive chines in the hull and a retractable bowsprit for gennaker and code zero. The 400 will be replacing the predecessor model, the Elan 410, which hasn’t been available for quite some time.

Despite a slightly shorter hull (11.95 meters) this design by Rob Humphreys is supposed to have the same generous cockpit as the 410 did. Now the foldout table is hidden in the cockpit floor and the twin rudders have opened the passage through the cockpit, which involved clambering around the big single wheel on the 410. The vertical stern on the 400 has a large fold-down platform and a spacious compartment.

Below the deck the layout is: three cabins and the option of one or two lavatories. In cooperation with Gigo Designa, the styling of the interior on the 400 will be completely renewed.The pricing has not been announced yet.
