Elan Yachts – GT5

After many years in design and development Elan is proud to announce the launch of a ‘New Concept in Yacht Design’. The GT Series will take the very best design and construction techniques from Elan’s award winning performance E and S ranges and combine this with the benefits of larger deck saloon yachts to produce a truly elegant sporty cruising yacht. This luxurious cruising range of yachts will have the pace to swallow up the miles at sea, whilst offering a safe and easy to handle yacht for the shorthanded crew. Due to the wider and flatter hull design twin rudders are more efficient then a single rudder, providing exceptional control and reducing the tendency to broach. The yacht does not stall easily, her pitching moment is reduced and her directional control is superb! The keel has a very low centre of gravity for enhanced sail-carrying power arranged in a T-shaped geometry beneath a low wetted surface area fin. More righting moment for reduced displacement and drag. Chined hull helps with the yacht’s tracking ability upwind and clean off the wake, giving the yacht improved high speed and control downwind. When heeled ideally the yacht reaches an optimum underwater hull shape with a small wetted surface for minimum drag. Chines also prevent broaching because it works as a long skeg. Matching the maximum beam with the optimum underwater hull shape leads to the design of a chined hull. A sophisticated hull shape (Humphreys Yacht Design) with more radius in underwater hull sections aft are better balanced with fuller forward sections to increase beam without increasing drag. Dedicated Cruising Interior, this radical new interior layout gives the maximum benefit from the larger beam of this modern yacht design. By moving the galley forward the saloon is far larger than yachts of its class, whilst the galley also gains from this new forward positioning, offering a far more open and luxurious living area on this dedicated cruising yacht. Abundant storage, innovative design solutions and a modern bright interior combine with many new features which will enhance your long term cruising on this Gran Turismo. www.elan-yachts.com
