The Elan E5 is designed for demanding sailors who seek a perfect balance between serious, regatta-winning performance and elegant design with abundant space and comfort. Exciting features such as hard chines, twin rudders and twin wheels make this an instantly recognisable boat. It comes equipped with an impressive array of performance-enhancing equipment, including a retractable carbon fibre bowsprit, a genoa furling system, a keel stepped mast and an adjustable split backstay. The E5 is first and foremost a sailors’ yacht but it can also be used comfortably in all shorthanded conditions.


The yacht features a clean and distinctive exterior design, a carefully tuned sail plan, and a welcoming cockpit with a teak-covered seating area. The E5 is optimized for shorthanded sailing and its interior meets the most demanding requirements for both comfort and luxury. The furniture, made with a natural oak veneer, is conveniently designed to offer optimal amounts of space and comfort, while the fully-equipped galley will easily satisfy your culinary needs. The hot water system and the electric drain pumps, the DAME-awarded control panel and the pleasant practical and ambient lighting truly deliver a rounded and comfortable cruising experience in this uncompromisingly equipped yacht.
