About this Sailboat:
The Elan has proven its all-round qualities with a great growth in sales.
We have received ecstatic feedback from our new Elan owners; they are absolutely enjoying the sheer pleasure of cruising with performance on a yacht that responds and behaves in light winds and heavy weather with great stability. And for those guys who are more Performance geared, they have big smiles on their faces as they pass by their club competitors.
As the premiere model in the Impression range, the 44 ft bluewater cruiser has recently been bestowed with many awards. Hailed as ‘Boat of the Boat show’ at the 2004 Stockholm Boat Show and named Boat of the Year by several marine magazines throughout Europe as well as Sail in the USA, the Impression 434 has triumphed since her launch in April 2004.
The distinct and elegant lines of the yacht are the innovative design of the notable yacht designer, Rob Humphreys who is well known for the design of many an illustrious bluewater cruisers and round the world racing yachts. While the Slovenian boat manufacturers, Elan, have a 60 years long history of boat building, the two have worked in close collaboration for the past 10 years, with Humphreys responsible for the design of Elans very successful range of Performance Cruisers and their Impression Cruising Range.
This yacht is ideal for the cruising sailor. Supreme comfort and spaciousness flow throughout her bright and airy semi deck saloon with panoramic windows and light woodwork. Generous storage and enormous tank capacity for both water and fuel also allow for pleasurable extended holiday cruising.
Not surprisingly, with Humphreys designs they are fast bluewater cruisers with exceptional seaworthiness that are easy to handle by a couple or single handed. Elans commitment to quality and attention to detail is reflected throughout and they are built to the exacting standards set down by Germanischer Lloyd’.
