The Open-class inspired Elan 350 has once again consolidated Elan’s reputation as a builder of exciting performance-cruising sailing yachts, where neither performance, nor the cruising capabilites are left to compromise.

Its wide transom, twin-rudder arrangement and chined hull deliver excellent control even at high heel angles. Her T-shaped keel ensures a lower centre of gravity and improved righting movement, which in turn reduces displacement. At the end it all adds up to an exhilarating sailing performance, which one expects on much bigger boats. Maybe the best feature yet is how effortless she is to sail, even in challenging conditions.

The powerful aft quarters that gives the Elan 350 her power and pace also engenders her with an unrivalled cruising accommodation, with a really spacious aft cabin, generous heads compartment and an aft stowage locker. Her sailing capabilities and comfortable interior will definitely be the envy of many larger cruising yachts. The Elan 350 will definitely put a big grin on every sailing enthusiast’s face.

The Elan 350 delivers tons of fun at significantly less effort. Developed to satisfy diverse modes of sailing, from shorthanded sailing to crewed racing or family cruising, she does it all amazingly easy. Her main design feature, the twin rudders, broad stern and chined hull all work hand-in-hand towards different goals – sparkling performance, improved stability, excellent control and comfortable interior. Simply put, she delivers exuberant performance with such ease, you will want to sail her harder, such is the level of control delivered by her chines and twin-rudder arrangement.

After sailing there is plenty of space below deck for the satisified crew. Elan 350’s wide beam offers a comfortable 2-cabin layout, from the bright, social saloon, to the well-equipped galley or the generous head compartment. The spacious navstation on starboard will offer plenty of space for planning the regattatactics or finding the next mooring. The L-shaped galley on portside is well-equipped and functional, with ample storage solutions. The 3-cabin layout offers another aft cabin, accommodating 2 more crew, but without any compromise to their comfort.

A clever weight-reducing feature is the possibility to remove the saloon, galley and cabin cabinets for even better racing performance. (Available as an option).

The thinking behind interior development took in consideration casual family crusing vacations, as well as serious racing – the forecabin features a clever gennaker storage under the berth. The aft cabin is significantly more spacious considering the length of the boat, thanks to her broad stern, in both, the 2- or 3-cabin layout. The bright head compartment with shower, found on starboard, is complete with a wet locker and drain.
