Discerning buyers in Australia are leaning towards Elan Yachts because of their world renown quality and ease of handling. Sydney Harbour is seeing more Elan yachts than ever before, often seen sailing under the Sydney Harbour Bridge and past the Sydney Opera House. The Australian importer and distributor of Elan Yachts, Performance Cruising Yachts are seeing strong growth in new Elan yacht sales and will be one of the first to debut the exceptional Elan GT6 at the Sydney Festival of Boating in July.
Performance Cruising Yacht’s sister company Sydney By Sail Yacht Charters has recently commissioned two new Elan Impression 45.1’s for their fleet on Sydney Harbour offering private sailing experiences and romantic overnight stays onboard this magnificent luxury cruiser. The new vertical transom creates more space in the cockpit and provides plenty of room for those going for a swim or simply lazing in the sun. The classic Elan lines, comfortable and innovative interior, twin wheels, and split cockpit table make this yacht the most desirable charter yacht in Sydney Harbour.
Sydney By Sail is also introducing an Elan Impression 40.1 into their Yacht Share fleet, which involves buyers purchasing a 10% share in a yacht to sail 33 days a year. The Elan Impression 40.1 is the first ever syndicate yacht to have all 10 shares sold before the yacht even arrived in Australia. The Impression 40.1 has a cockpit clad in beautiful teak wood with plenty of seating and storage lockers. The drop-down transom provides a large swim deck complete with a built-in swim ladder and hot/cold shower. This yacht is all luxury and class below deck with an abundance of light and ventilation with expertly crafted woodwork in African Teak. This model has three spacious double cabins and a large head with toilet and shower. Under sail this yacht is beautifully balanced and easy to handle, with a large overlapping headsail designed for exhilarating sailing. The in-mast furling is simple to use when sailing short-handed, and ensures the deck is uncluttered with ropes.
