The Elan 40 is a hi-tech design performance cruiser with the emphasis on top level performance to capture the spirit of the competitive sailor and at the same time offering the well appointed comforts and style for the enjoyment of the crew on board.
Designed to be responsive and fast in light wind, the boat easily handles various weather conditions with only a minimum adjustment of the sail area, a feature equally important to the cruising family as it is to the race crew.
Designed by top international yacht designer Rob Humphreys, the Elan 40 succeeds in combining modern technology and expertise with a respect for tradition, elegance, and stylish good looks. The deck layout of the Elan 40 reflects the many years of designing, building, and sailing experience that were put together to conceive this boat. The clean deck features the very best deck hardware available, while the ergonomically designed cockpit guarantees comfort for both the crew and the skipper. Down below the Elan 40 is just as thoughtfully designed and well-laid out. The high-quality joinery, flowing lines, and beautiful craftsmanship shine through in every detail.
Tupelo Honey has been continuously upgraded since it was new by Easom Racing & Rigging with the best running rigging and features such as push-button backstay control making it easy and efficient to sail and race.
