Designed in partnership with Humpreys Yacht Design, as well as Pininfarina, the Elan Impression 43 elegantly fuses functionality with comfort. It showcases a semi-deck-saloon design, allowing an abundance of natural light and spacious interiors. A balanced sail plan and a modern hull geometry provide unparalleled stability and safety.

The Elan Impression 43 has been officially nominated for the esteemed European Yacht of the Year Award. A hallmark of innovation and quality in the yachting world, this accolade is considered the 'Oscar' of the marine industry. This is the third consecutive new model from Elan that has been nominated for the European Yacht of the Year Award.

The Elan I43 has been designed with every comfort in mind. Leisure when cruising is guaranteed. Relaxation and enjoyment are a priority – everything from a large volume, sunbathing areas in the cockpit, outdoor grill and fridge options, to microwave and coffee machine options all blended into a yacht with the enviable sailing quality of a Humphreys-designed hull.

Don’t Miss out on the first UK delivered hull.


HULL Laminated with VAIL - Vacuum Assisted Infusion Lamination, technology with 3D VAIL stringer for chainplate and longitudinal 3D VAIL stringer, to considerably improve strength, mechanical and chemical properties of the hull.
High-quality materials, SVG gelcoat for optimal chemical resistance against osmosis and mirror finish, sandwich construction using multi-directional fibreglass, structural closed cells foam core on hull sides and single skin on hull bottom and loaded areas, vinyl ester skin coat and Isophthalic polyester resin are used for a high-quality product. A powerful inner structure distributes all loads from the keel and rig effectively with a minimum flexing of the hull.

• Sandwich Laminated with VAIL - Vacuum Assisted Infusion Lamination using PVC foam core to assure thermal and sound isolation, moulded antislip surface on deck and coach roof.
