Boasting a modern wide-beam hull, the Impression 43 offers much more space than previous models. Due to the continuing tradition of a raised coach roof, what we call a “semi-deck-saloon”, it holds its own against competitors as well.
It will surprise no one that the hull and sail plan was designed by Humphreys Yacht Design. Be rest assured that the yacht will therefore have great sailing characteristics even at fully-loaded larger displacement yachts.
The yachts aesthetics were styled in cooperation with the design studio Pininfarina a relationship that birthed the multiple design award-winning Elan E6 and is now continuing with the Elan Impression 43.
The hull and sail plan are optimized for easy short-handed sailing. Elan’s recognizable 3D VAIL composite technology creates a light, stiff and incredibly safe construction style. VAIL,or vacuum-assisted infusion lamination process creates a solid hull without imperfections or air bubbles, which, in combination with the vinyl ester outer layer makes the yacht osmosis-proof. The “3D” part of vacuum-assisted infusion lamination is applied to the vertical and lateral stringers, which ensures the best mechanical properties of the hull and rigging and is the secret behind Elan’s famed hull stiffness.
