New for 2021 Elan Impression 45 11:31am, Fri 18 Sep 2020
Elan Impression yachts quickly became famous with cruising enthusiasts and charter companies alike, and they are known for their sailing characteristics, endurance, comfort features and craftsmanship. True to its name, the Elan Impression 45 provides the best impression for the best cruisers ever on water.
Cruising World Editor Mark Pillsbury jumped on board the New Elan Impression 45.1 for a test sail
With its swooping deck-saloon cabin profile, plumb stern, and loads of ports and overhead hatches to let light pour into the cabins and saloon below, there’s a lot to like about the look and feel of Elan Yachts' new cruising sailboat, the Impression 45.1.
Throw in a full-batten main, overlapping genoa and agile steering, and the 45.1 is an able sailing boat too, as Cruising World’s Boat of the Year Judges found out during a light-air day right after the US Sailboat Show in Annapolis, Maryland, this past October.
The most visible change introduced on the 45.1 compared with its predecessor of the same LOA is the plumb stern, which makes for roomy aft cabins down below; a longer and wider cockpit that provides ample space for guests to relax forward of the twin wheels; and comfortable seating options astern for the skipper when underway. These include teak-covered spaces outboard of either wheel, letting a driver sit and see the telltales on the genoa, as well as teak-topped boxes located aft of each helm so the helmsman can face forward.
Book a charter holiday for 2021 and enjoy superior quality fit and finish that only Elan do so well. The reason is simple, they employ real craftsmen and women in the construction of their fleet of luxury blue water cruising yachts.
