Elan 450

Sophisticated performance cruising, Elan's 45ft Cruiser / Racer with twin rudders is a calibre of yacht that stands totally in its own league.

The most impressive thing about the Elan 450 is its sailing ability – short-handed. You can count on real sailing enjoyment with response and character combined with unquestionable performance and cruising comfort. The 450 will appeal to the serious sailor and at the same time this is a refined cruising yacht offering high level facilities and comfort to be enjoyed by family too. Racing or cruising, the Humphreys' masterful hallmark is ever present.

Spectacular visual appeal, sleek well proportioned lines, open transom, flush hatches on coach roof, open bow pulpit, clean lines on deck, long waterline, pure bow line and bright and contemporary spacious interior.  Choice of 3 or 4 cabin layout; the luxurious owner's forecabin featuring a large island bed and generous head compartment with separate shower cubicle and two aft large double cabins that mirror one another offer very comfortable accommodation for guests and crew. The 4 cabin version houses the additional forward cabin with two generous bunk beds. Light filled saloon, well ventilated with proper insulated ceiling, plenty of comfy seating, large folding saloon table to relax around, sea going galley, thoughtful storage solutions, front opening fridge and hard wearing surface finish. Forward facing chart table and the second head compartment is located aft starboard.

Sailing Performance: One of the keys to the control and performance offered by the Elan 450 is the twin rudder arrangement – as proven in the Open 60 class. Twin rudders offer greater directional control and allow for much easier handling in difficult sailing conditions.  When sailing, the leeward rudder will always be in its most efficient position whilst the windward rudder will be creating very little or no drag. The result of this is greater control and performance.

The Elan 450's impressive sail plan with tall fractional rig, swept aft double spreaders, large mainsail area, non overlapping headsail and optional large gennaker handled by retractable bow spirit maximises her sailing performance taking full advantage of the precise combination of her fin keel and twin rudder steering system.

Features:  Maneouvering in a marina is a breeze with the retracting bow thruster as standard. The performance 2.6m composite keel is also standard, the cockpit is very generous and the cockpit table can be stored in the designated storage space under the cockpit floor.  Large cockpit lockers, life raft storage and the cabin top incorporates recessed space for storage of the spray hood. Twin steering wheels, a German mainsheet system and traveller mounted on the cockpit floor, 3 pairs of powerful Harken winches, the head sail furling gear with the drum recessed below deck. The anchor and bow roller is stored under deck with a hinged fold out system.

This fast paced yacht can be optimised beyond its standard specification with the Elan Club Race Pack which comprises of the a Selden Performance Mast, Dyform rigging, Dyneema running rigging, upgraded winches as well as a carbon gennaker pole.

But for those looking for the ultimate specification, then the Elan Grand Prix pack would be the only choice with its Selden Carbon Mast, Rod rigging, Dyneema running rigging upgraded winches and carbon gennaker pole.
