Elan embodies a true passion for sailing, technological innovations and distinctive design. Every yacht comming from Elan's 16.000 sq meter boatyard in Slovenia is the result of our 70-year long passion for innovation-oriented quality boat-building.
Humphreys Yacht Design has been the principal designer for Elan Marine since the mid-1990s, working with Elan’s own extensive in-house engineering team. From the first relationship, the Elan 295, Rob Humphreys has been an ever-strengthening presence, consistently helping direct the company’s vision, with a range of boats that offer excellent racer-cruiser balance. It’s what Humphreys has frequently referred to as the 60/60 range, where the racing eye will focus on the boats’ obvious race-winning potential and feel the designs are biased in his direction, while the cruising temperament will see his own particular interest as being the one that commands the 60%
