For those with an untamed heart and a soul that yearns for the vast, endless expanse of the open sea, the Elan GT6 X, aptly named the Explorer, isn’t just another yacht. It’s the embodiment of two worlds: the wild beauty of nature and the opulent luxury of man’s finest creation. The Explorer offers long journeys across waters, along with a voyage through life's myriad of emotions and experiences. It represents a journey where every sunrise is a promise and every sunset, a collection of unforgettable memories.

Embarking on adventures with the Explorer bestows a sense of achievement that few other experiences can match, offering a purpose and infusing every moment with profound meaning.

Further enriching its legacy, the Elan GT6’s Mediterranean roots shine through in the Explorer's cockpit layout. This design places sailors closer to the water and when the weather permits, strengthens their connection with the environment. This offers a more involved experience in contrast to the elevated vantage of centre cockpit yachts of traditional bluewater cruisers, while still offering safe and covered areas with high coamings, integrated sprayhood arch and bimini. By incorporating this Mediterranean-inspired style, the Explorer brings a touch of “joie de vivre” philosophy to waters across the globe, uniting the charm of al-fresco lifestyle with modern-day cruising luxuries.
